Bachelor Father | Jean C. Gordon Marathon


Today I am reviewing Bachelor Father, the 1st novel in the Upstate NY series by Jean C. Gordon.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Upstate NY…where love is a little sweeter 

Adoption caseworker Molly Hennessey is determined to place every child in her caseload in a happy home with two loving parents — the type of caring home she’s always dreamed of having herself.

Determined, that is, until Brett Cahill comes along and disproves her lifelong perceptions of single parents.

Brett is a typical bachelor. He figures that someday he’ll settle down with a wife and have kids — but just not yet.

Then, his sister and her husband are killed in an accident, leaving him with Jake, the Korean toddler they were in the process of adopting.

But in order for Brett’s application to be approved he needs to be a married man and kiss his bachelor days good-bye.

Molly holds the power to give herself the home she’s always longed for and to give Brett what he wants most–little Jake. But will she realize it in time?

Bachelor Father is a wonderful story, and is especially endearing to those who have adopted, or are considering adoption.

I quickly identified with Molly Hennessey . . . in my job, it’s easy to see both sides of the story. Most of the time, rules have to be followed explicitly; thankfully, sometimes a supervisor can bend a rule just a little — enough to help the person on the other side to work things out.

This is the position Brent Cahill is in. He needs a rule bent just enough to work things out.

For many years, I would have loved to adopt . . . but the financial aspect — and then the lack of a Dad in the home — was the determining factor in my life. But I wish it had worked out. After all, children are a blessing (at least that’s the viewpoint in our home).

Back to the story . . . I can’t reveal much else; if I do, I might spoil it for you. But take it from me — you should read Molly and Brent’s story (warning: you might need a tissue or two).

Don’t miss out on this wonderful novel.

Happy Reading!

    Oh my, I need this book to read since I’ve worked with families who were foster parents and then became adoptive parents. Bachelor Father definitely is a book calling my name. : )

    Can’t wait to read this book. I know many adopted international children. It’s such a blessing that they have a forever family and the child(ren) are a blessing to the family.

      Yes, it certainly is… children are a blessing!

    A little book background. The story was inspired by our adoption of our son from Korea. At that time there was another local family in which the mother had died of cancer before the adoption was finalized and the father was fighting to keep the child. Sadly, I never learned the final outcome.

    Awww, sounds like a very sweet story indeed! Jean, thanks for sharing the background to this, wished you could have learned the outcome for that father you knew. I just have to hope it was a happy ending! 🙂
