In The Surrogate Jamie Long, a penniless twenty year old, surrogacy motherhood seemed like both an act of altruism and financial opportunity. But once pregnant and under control of Amanda Hartmann, the head of a famous evangelical family, Jamie realizes that she's getting more that she bargained for.
Jamie is isolated and cut off from the outside world for the duration of her pregnancy on the family farm. During her time there she realized the truth about the Hartmann family and about the child she carries. Once Jamie realizes the truth it is a flight and fight for her and her child.
Once you start reading The Surrogate you will become engaged with what is happening to Jamie and her baby. An intriguing plot line with just enough action.
The book includes a book discussion guide and an interview with the author as well.
