Nobody's Child

Austin Boyd

Austin Boyd's vivid writing plunges you into Appalachia with such descriptive realism that you taste the perfume of summer clover and melt into the tender heart of a young woman who would sacrifice anything for Daddy. Hearkening to the myth of Pandora's Box, Nobody's Child sweeps you into a world where unprecedented choices never intended by heaven lead to unintended consequences never before seen on earth. Meet... Laura Ann McGehee---Determined to honor her father's dying request, the young West Virginia woman will do whatever it takes to save the family farm, including using the one remaining financial resource she has---her body. Sophia McQuistion---Thanks to the unusual sacrifice of a woman she has never met, she carries the child she could never conceive. Ian Stewart---In Laura's time of need, he's more than just a close friend. He is a source of grace, a man who loves Laura Ann through her many trials. When unusual circumstances place Sophia's baby in Laura Ann's care, Laura Ann is now the virgin mother of her own biological son. The media call him 'Nobody's Child.' But somebody wants him badly enough to steal him. Weaving together bioethics and faith, Nobody's Child dramatizes a future that is already upon us with consequences we can no longer avoid.
