Always My Son is one of a five book series revolving around girls who shared a season at Hope House, a maternity home. Two girls chose to keep their babies, including Candy, and the other three chose adoptive placement. The stories begin with their choices and continue through God's redemptive plan in their lives. Candy's healing comes through her marriage to Joe and his mother's marriage to the police officer who saved her life, which brings them into a loving, exuberant Hispanic family. Candy's hope is when the shame of her childhood abuse is revealed, her son, whom Joe considers his own, will accept the father who chose him.
