Mother of My Son

College student Amber Swansen gives birth alone. In desperation, she abandons the newborn, buries her secret, and attempts to get on with her life. No matter how far she runs, she can’t escape the guilt. Years later and still haunted by her past, Amber meets Beth Dilinger. Friendship blossoms between the two women, but Beth’s son is a constant, painful reminder to Amber of the child she abandoned. When heartache hits, causing Amber to grapple with the answers to life’s deeper questions, Beth stands by her side. Yet just when peace seems to be within Amber’s grasp, the truth of her past and the parentage of Beth’s son comes to light and threatens to shatter not only their worlds, but the life of the teenager they both love.

http://rachelallord.com  Last night I partook in my first book club discussion in which the book club discussed my novel. They provided fresh squeezed lemonade (if you’ve read Mother of My Son you’ll know why) and thought-provoking discussion. For a debut, newbie, novelist like me it was one of those moments of gratitude, an oh yes… this is why I started writing in the first place. This connection.
