From the Author
When I initially started this book, I had an entirely different direction in mind for it - and then I started to get to know my characters.
This isn't the first time that the psychology, beliefs, moral standards, and personality of my characters took over. The story took on a life of its own and there was nothing I could do but listen to them and write THEIR story rather than mine.

Phillip raised Nadine’s daughter Kelly as his own, and the years flew by. Now Kelly had turned 18, and Nadine’s father had died six months back. She felt this released them from their promise not to have children, but Phillip was convinced a promise was a promise and was determined not to break it. Nadine wanted a child badly, and the Reverand helped Phillip to see that having a child now would be the right thing to do.
Although Phillip was ready to have a child with Nadine, fate had other plans. Nadine’s biological clock was ticking, and soon she and Phillip would realize that they might have waited too long. To have the child they longed for, Phillip and Nadine would set on a journey of discovery with the help of their Reverand, a journey of sacrifice, acceptance, and what was acceptable in the eyes of God.
In The Eye Of… is quite a departure from the books and stories I’ve read of I. M. Telling’s before. Instead of a strong sexual component (there are sex scenes, but these don’t drive the story), the book focuses on the ethical and moral dilemmas a family faces when trying to conceive a child. The story line is intriguing, and does make you pause and consider if you’d make the same choices this family did, from the initial promise to the final decisions. Some readers may be a bit uncomfortable with the choices the Washingtons make..
Thank you to I. M. Telling for sending me his newest book for free to review!
