Watch Over Me by Christa Parrish

Greetings All,

I had started to not pick this book because the write up sounded like many other book plots. I am glad I went ahead and got it because it is *not* like other books about an abandoned baby, or troubled teens, or couples who have marriage issues. Watch Over Me was honest raw emotion and daily life. It hit me so hard that I couldn't read through it quickly at all! The basic issues of emotion and life are portrayed so plain and so real that these could be people in your neighborhood, your town, your life. This is the story of how one thing you "stumble on" can change your life, open your heart, heal and help.

Christa Parrish

Christa Parrish graduated high school at 16, with every intention of becoming a surgeon. After college, however, her love of all things creative led her in another direction, and she worked in both theatre and journalism.

A winner of Associated Press awards for her reporting, Christa gave up her career after the birth of her son, Jacob. She continued to write from home, doing pro bono work for the New York Family Policy Council, where her articles appeared in Focus on the Family’s Citizen magazine. She was also a finalist in World magazine’s WORLDview short story contest, sponsored by WestBow press. She now teaches literature and writing to high school students, is a homeschool mom, and lives with her husband, author Chris Coppernoll, and son in upstate New York, where she is at work on her third novel.


Her Rescue Might Be the Miracle They Needed Things like this don't happen in Beck County. Deputy Benjamin Patil is the one to find the infant girl, hours old, abandoned in a field. As police work to identify the mother, Ben and his wife, Abbi, seem like the obvious couple to serve as foster parents. But the newborn's arrival opens old wounds for Abbi and shines a harsh light on how much Ben has changed since a devastating military tour. Their marriage teeters on the brink and now they must choose to reclaim what they once had or lose each other forever.
