The premise of the book is that Allan and Michele have been trying to have a baby for over a year and it's been really hard on them emotionally. Michele wants to further researching infertility treatments while Allan doesn't even realize how big of a problem this is and chooses to focus his time (and funds) on mission trips in Africa.

This book is not just about Michele and Allan but about a girl named Christina who is pregnant out of wedlock and has a decision to make. It's an interesting look into the life of a woman going through that process; most of the time we hear about the adoptive parents or even adoptive child's perspective but I've never read anything from the biological mother's view.
"The Desire" is just a beautiful look at Christ's love for us all, how God's plan can really veer away from our plans, and how we need to react to such plans. The only part I really disliked about this was that the Christians in the book lived in an affluent community, which I think perpetuates the idea (especially outside America) that Christians are all really rich. Not all are.
You can find "The Desire" on Amazon.
