What a Tangled Web We Weave

Deb’s Dozen: An adopted child, a son in need—two mothers in sacred bond

The Plans We Made by Kathryn Cushman and Lauren Beccue is a wonderful story of loss and love and forgiveness. I must admit I had my doubts as I started to read, but the captivating characters and the situations soon had me in their grasp. I found I could not put down the book until the denouement was reached.

Caroline Chapman, offered the job of her dreams, must choose. Does she follow her fiancé and his dreams, or does she stand up for herself and follow her own. She chooses dreams.

Lauren Riley faced a choice many years ago. Her dream shattered, she chose the only path she felt was right. Now, many years later, that choice comes back to haunt her, but also to give her hope.

Faced with the imminent death of her son, Lauren must make another choice—to perhaps destroy the life she enjoys now to save her son. And possibly to destroy the life of another, innocent, person. “Oh, what tangled webs we weave, when we first practice to deceive…” as Sir Walter Scott wrote so many years ago.

You will find yourself fascinated with the stories of Caroline and Lauren, and you will root for them both to find happiness. Five stars!

Kathryn Cushman, a former pharmacist, now writes award-nominated books. The Plans We Made is her tenth novel. Lauren Beccue lives in Santa Barbara with her family after graduating with a BA in English from Holy Cross. Both write about faith and family.M/p>
