Courtesy of CK2S Kwips and KritiquesFamilies don t always match on the outside, but they matched on the inside, and that s all that counts And that s what family means to me Eli Cartright is a teacher who specializes in working with teenage parents, helping them to find alternatives so they can raise their children and finish school She is than a teacher however, she is a mentor to many of these students coming through her classroom, providing the support they aren t receiving from their own parents Eli has the perfect life with a fulfilling career and a good boyfriend She has the rest of her life all planned out until a few Unexpected Gifts come her way In her 40s, Eli is about to become a mother for the first time, quite unplanned Her boyfriend has no room in his life for a baby so he leaves her to deal with raising a child on her own Fortunately for her, she has wonderful parents and friends, as well as a business associate, Zac Keller, who has a soft spot for Eli, and the kids in her program He grew up in a family with stronger ties than blood so he knows that often the Unexpected Gifts, are the most wonderful blessings of all if only he can convince Eli he is here to stay.Holly Jacobs has written yet another wonderful story in Unexpected Gifts After so many books where Holly Jacobs has endeavored to make us laugh, it is a change in direction for her to now want to make us cry in an oh so good way, as she s had a few books now serious in tone, but this is a change that works incredibly well for her Family is often a theme explored, with various analogies, in Holly s books and this is one of my favorites yet for how she defines a family It doesn t matter if a family matches on the outside, only that they match on the inside, as Zac s sister Cessy explains in an essay she writes I shed many tears in that particular scene There is one other scene as well, later in the book that was made me cry over the significance and poignancy of the moment We know in that scene, just how deeply Zac cares for Eli and her unborn baby.I enjoyed the irony we experience alongside of Eli, who has helped teens deal with unplanned for pregnancies, only to find herself in the same situation Eli has a boyfriend who can t make up his mind if he wants to be there for her and the baby or not, and has to prepare to be a single mother at a time in her life she never expected this to happen When Zac steps in to help Eli, she doubts their relationship initially but Zac is crazy about Eli and her baby, and is determined to prove to her he is here to stay Their relationship is at times tender, humorous, or difficult, and we never doubt for a moment these two are perfect for one another, complementing each other s strengths and weaknesses.I loved my visit with Eli and Zac, and all of the Keller clan in Unexpected Gifts I hope we can look forward to stories about this charming family Kelley A Hartsell, November 2009 All rights reserved.
