Adoption was never the second choice. Not for Tory and Matt Witcraft from the Canada who dream of becoming parents. After years of working their way through the international adoption system, their dreams finally start to come true when they see a photo of Bethlehem, the little Ethiopian girl destined to become their daughter.

Then one morning the unthinkable – their adoption agency goes bankrupt. Chaos ensues as they are left in limbo with rumors swirling about how their daughter may be starving or worse, lost to them forever. With their dreams of a family unraveling before their eyes, Tory and Matt do the only thing they can, they go to their daughter in Ethiopia.

But the fight doesn’t end with international political battles. Secrets from the past threaten the new family, shattering hearts and dreams.

Their adoption journey was difficult, but no one expected the hardest part of the journey would start once their dreams came true.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

This story sweeps you right up and totally immerses you in this family’s life as they learn that adoption can be a lot harder than it looks from the outside. P.R. Newton does a fabulous job of bringing her characters to life and making them real telling a story that so many don’t understand about raising traumatized kids. I highly recommend it!


In this book the curtain is pulled back on the so often envisioned world of gum drops and lollipops that many think international adoption is. This is truth, love and learning. Read it. You will rejoice and likely cry, but most will be glad of it.


What a wonderful and amazing book. I couldn’t put it down. So well written and so true to life that one feels they are there with the Witcraft family and Bethlehem. So heartwarming and touching.


The author did a wonderful job of telling a the story in a captivating manner, keeping me constantly waiting to see what would happen next. While fictional, this story shares the heartache so many adoptive parents feel as they wait for their child. A must read for everyone!


Shattered Embrace is one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. The characters were so well developed that I find myself wondering how they are doing and what has happened to them now, a month after I finished the book! It was a story that stuck with me, one that I talked to others about, and thought about even when the book wasn’t in my hands.
