The perfect candidate to carry their child...with the perfect opportunity to destroy their lives.

When Kyle Dolan convinces his wife, Bethany, to hire a surrogate for their last surviving embryo, they allow themselves to hope once again. A med school student, Laurel Bergin seems perfect in every way. Problem is--Laurel Bergin is really Sable Lynde.

As the pregnancy progresses, Sable's dark secrets surface, and her inner demons spill out into the Dolans' lives. In a terrifying encounter, Sable is injured and lapses into a coma. Now the Dolans face psychological and supernatural forces they never knew existed.

Fearing for their sanity, their own lives, and the life of their baby, they confront the surrogate--and the darkness surrounding her--in a heart-stopping climax that will keep you reading late into the night.

good .. but long  Jun 5, 2007
pretty good book. i think it kinda started to drag out. but has a good concept
The Surrogate delivers  Nov 1, 2006
I've read all of Kathryn Mackel's books to date and _The Surrogate_ is my favorite. Great writing, great storytelling, great characterization, great dialogue. It all makes for a great read. After reading the book, I found myself inspired to seek after God at a deeper level. Something I don't experience much after reading fiction. Mackel's writing style is fast-paced but intriguing. She writes with passion, and no where is that more seen than in _The Surrogate_.
This story will have you on the edge of your seat.  Sep 21, 2005
The Surrogate is a very engrossing novel with intriguing characters and a strong plot. Unlike most suspense novels, this one actually kept me guessing and I loved the twists and turns along the way. This story was not predictable and sometimes it raised the hair on the back of my neck. So if you are looking for a story that will give you the willies and keep you on the edge of your seat praying for the safety of the characters, then you must read this book.
Impossible to put down!  Jul 8, 2005
The Surrogate is a thrilling book that will captivate you from beginning to end. The writing is superb! The writing style allows the reader to feel the emotions right along with the characters. There were moments in the book when the actions of one of the characters frustrated and angered me like crazy! However, Ms. Mackel does an excellent job of fully developing the characters, giving the reader enough information to sympathize with even the meanest and most irresponsible character. There wasn't a dull moment in the entire book. It was a fast paced book full of awesome twists.

The book had several wonderful themes. It illustrated how God always works for the good of those who love Him. Good can come out of even the worst situations. Also, the ending of the book is an excellent example of the impact being loving and compassionate could have on others, even when it's undeserved.

If you're looking for a suspenseful, well-written, page-turner with an excellent message, this book is perfect!
A delicious onion  May 2, 2005
Kathryn Mackel's Surrogate is like a delicious onion. As I read, I kept peeling it back, layer by layer. It was a gripping read and very timely. And I like onions! So don't knock my metaphor!!!
