It’s been 10 years since Daly and Lara Smith tied the knot. In all that time, however, they have not been blessed with a child—their most cherished wish. Lara has suffered multiple miscarriages and the disappointment of failed IVF treatments, has had her application for adoption cruelly rejected, and has had to endure the insults of her insensitive in-laws.
Now approaching her 40th birthday, the agony of being a perpetual woman in waiting is all becoming too much, threatening to derail her marriage, career, and future happiness. A chance encounter with another woman, however, may hold the key to finding the one thing that has eluded her all these years. With God’s grace, will Lara and Daly see their dream of having a baby come true at last?
Women In Waiting by Funmi Anu Bankole is a moving story that underlines the virtues of patience and belief in the face of adversity.
