When young Cheryl Ann leaves home, she thinks her path is straight…until she’s forced to make a choice she could never have imagined. The man in her life makes it clear: either pick your baby or pick me, he says. Suddenly, Cheryl finds herself at a crossroads. She makes a decision that will change her life forever, and that decision causes a chain of events that will lead Cheryl to a completely unexpected place.

Baby Girl is a mother’s story. It’s about the greatest sacrifice a mother can make when she wants only the best for her child. It’s about falling in and out of love, of losing and finding one’s self. It’s about the perilous journey from passionate young love to happy true love and understanding the differences between the two.

Baby Girl is a book that readers won’t want to miss because it’s a story they won’t forget.

From the Author:

This book is based on a true story…a story that is heartbreaking at times but will leave readers with a better understanding of what a woman will do to protect her child. When I first heard this birth mother’s story I was touched by it, so much so that I needed to know more. When I knew more, I knew I needed to write my novel. The result is Baby Girl.

Baby Girl – #fridayfiction

That’s how it started. We became friends, and our mamas did too. Blanche Carter and Mama had a lot in common. They both saw life as one giant thing to complain about.

For the rest of that summer, Missus Carter was at our house almost every day. She’d amble down about a half-hour after Daddy left for work and stay for hours. Mama would brew a fresh pot of coffee and they’d sit at the kitchen table, Missus Carter talking about the no-good husband who’d left when Ryan was just a baby and Mama talking about Daddy.

According to Mama, Daddy had next to no ambition, was lazy as a log and snored like a sick bull. Mama told every bad thing she could think of, but she never once mentioned how Daddy made people feel good about themselves and happy to be around him.

Once when Missus Carter was in the middle of complaining about Ryan’s daddy, Mama said, “Blanche, consider yourself lucky. Having no man is better than having one who’s worthless.”
