Long Time Coming (2010)

Are you wanting a book that will tug at your heartstrings? These two women are from two different worlds - one is a respected school principal, married but yearning for a child; the other is a 23-year-old single mother of three children under the age of seven. The young mother, Kenisha, has just been diagnosed with cervical cancer and is told that she has six months to live. One day Kenisha's sister Aisha forgets to pick up Kenisha's son Jamal, and she gets to meet principal Deidre Clark. As the story progresses, the pair develop a friendship, with Deidre soon becoming Kenisha's rock. So when Kenisha's time is up, it's up to Deidre to make the decision of a lifetime - whether to adopt Kenisha's children or put them into foster care. This is like the Christian version of similar themed books such as The Accidental Mother. (PP)
