“Hope Deferred” by Elizabeth Maddrey, book review

Sisters June and July have spent the last year trying to start a family, but with a lot disappointment. But now they both have decided to consult a specialist and begin some medical intervention. As each couple works through their own infertility issues they deal with emotions, disagreements and financial issues. And while their desire have a family is noble and honorable, some fear that the use of medical assistance is not.

Through the process continues the couples become closer together, although the road is a little rocky at times. And while the paths begin the same, it quickly diverges and becomes more difficult. When one couple has good news it is hard to be excited while the other couple has received bad news.

This book was easy to read and had a lot of detail about infertility issues. If you are dealing with infertility, it may be hard for you to read or may be comforting.

Elizabeth Maddrey


Elizabeth Maddrey is a semi-reformed computer geek and homeschooling mother of two who loves a good happily ever after.

Elizabeth Maddrey began writing stories as soon as she could form the letters properly and has never looked back. Though her practical nature and love of computers, math, and organization steered her into computer science at Wheaton College, she always had one or more stories in progress to occupy her free time. This continued through a Master’s program in Software Engineering, several years in the computer industry, teaching programming at the college level, and a Ph.D. in Computer Technology in Education. When she isn’t writing, Elizabeth is a voracious consumer of books and has mastered the art of reading while undertaking just about any other activity.

She lives in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. with her husband and their two incredibly active little boys.
