Sandy Toes // Book Review
A new season begins for Christy and Todd with a pregnancy test and a disillusioning visit to the doctor.
As they try to catch their balance, Todd's job swerves in a new direction; Aunt Marti overdoes her self-assigned role of preparing for the family's addition-to-come; and Christy's parents face surprising changes that might take them back to Wisconsin.
Christy misses Katie more then ever, and just when she thinks life will slow down, Alissa's daughter, Shawna, comes to visit and brings all her pre-teen charms and challenges with her.
A Mixture of excitement and anxiety carries Christy through all the baby-bumps. Her hopes and dreams are as many as the grains of sand that cover her sandy toes after sunset walks on the beach with Todd. Christy knows that everything is about to change when she steps into one of the greatest mysteries of life--motherhood.
This book was so sweet! Sandy Toes is the first book in the series, Christy and Todd: The Baby Years.
This book goes along with all of the other Christy Miller books. When I first started to read Christy and Todd: The High School Years I wasn't too sure if I liked the books or not. I decided to read a little more and I slowly started to like them. Eventually they grew on me and I couldn't wait to read The College Years and The Married Years. So I was so excited when I found out that Robin Jones Gunn was writing The Baby Years. It was so fun to read more about Christy and Todd. If you've read the other Christy Miller books and enjoyed them, then you'll definitely want to read this new series as well! If you haven't read any of the previous books you could probably start with this one. There are some things though that are mentioned in this book that are mentioned briefly and may not make a whole lot of sense if you haven't read the previous books.
So yes, I really liked this book and can't wait for books 2 and 3 to come out! :)
