Surprise Child

Finding Hope in Unexpected Pregnancy

Unexpected pregnancies happen to women in every season of life, yet the loneliness surrounding an unplanned pregnancy is rarely acknowledged. In Surprise Child, Fields walks the reader month-by-month through the stages of pregnancy, voicing with startling honesty her own struggles and guiding the reader from despair toward readiness for new life.

"Many women today find an unexpected pregnancy too much to bear... If only they could read Surprise Child to know they are not alone." ---Yvette Maher, vice president of Community Impact Outreach, Focus on the Family
