"She will risk everything for her daughter. Clay Benedict may love her but he can't stop her."
What would you do if your child was seriously ill and had
no other recourse but to do something illegal? This is one
of several serious questions you might ask yourself after
reading Clay by Jennifer Blake. Clay is a unique storyline
dealing with a mother's love for her child, a man's love
for his brother, and the choices they make in order to save
a child's life.
Single mother Janna must choose between right and wrong to
save the life of her child, Lainey. Lainey needs a life
saving kidney transplant, and her mother decides she will
force a member of Lainey's father's family to help her
daughter, through a less than legitimate means. She's
tried going the legal route, but one failure after another
has left little time but for a desperate plan. Clay is the
man Janna chooses for her victim, and has ties to Lainey's
real father. Somewhere along the way, Janna and Clay learn
to rely on each other and combine their forces to help save
the life of little Lainey.
This story shows what length a mother will go to to protect
the life of her daughter, as well as choosing between what
is right and wrong. It contains a serious dilemma, but is
dealt with well and really leaves you wondering what you'd
do in the same situation.
