Leslie Leyland Fields’ Surprise Child: Finding Hope in Unexpected Pregnancy (Waterbrook Press, 2006)

Fields’ work is a lucid discussion of the fears mothers experience when faced with unexpected pregnancies.  Divided into nine easy-to-read chapters (can be done in a few hours), Fields offers suggestions on how to respond to an unexpected pregnancy so that both the mother and the child will have the best outcomes of often difficult—and, in some cases, insurmountable—circumstances.  All husbands and fathers should read this book of women’s experiences.  More importantly, it should be read by those men who think of their girlfriends only as objects for their sexual gratification.
