Reclaiming Lily Book Review

Reclaiming Lily is a wonderful story of a troubled doctor burdened with granting her dying mother's wish to reunite Fourth Daughter, her youngest sister with the Chang family. This woman's journey takes her a world away to America where she becomes a physician arming herself with the knowledge and skills to fight the disease that had claimed her mother and could later claim her sister now living in America with the Powell family. As the story unfolds the struggle for adoptive mother and birth sister to do what's best for Lily or Joy as she is known to the Powell family becomes easier and God softens both their hearts. The story gives us a glimpse into PKD and the threat it poses to the Chang daughters. The story is not without heartbreak, healing, and self-discovery. I highly recommend reading Reclaiming Lily for this is one story that does not disappoint from cover to cover.

About the book: A storm the size of Texas brews when Gloria Powell and Kai Chang meet in a Ft. Worth hotel. They have come to discuss the future of Lily, the daughter Gloria adopted from China and the sister Kai hopes to reclaim. Kai is a doctor who had to give up her little sister during the Cultural Revolution and has since discovered that an inherited genetic defect may be waiting to fatally strike Lily.

Gloria's relationship with her daughter is tattered and strained, and the arrival of Kai, despite the woman's apparent good intentions, makes Gloria fearful. Gloria longs to restore her relationship with Lily, but in the wake of this potentially devastating diagnosis, is Kai an answer to prayer--or will her arrival force Gloria to sacrifice more than she ever imagined?
