My Review: One choice can change lives.
This is the first book I have ever read by Mr. Whitlow and I really enjoyed how he did a great job of not forgetting those little details in life, yet not making them too obvious with overlong descriptions, which for me made this book feel more realistic.
I liked how this book dealt with the choices we make and how sometimes what some people would call an everyday choice can change lives and make a difference.
Being adopted myself, I liked how this book dealt with the topic. And it really is an amazing thing, and the women who choose life are heroes who selflessly put their children first.
I liked the character of Jeremy because I felt that I could relate to him in that he was content in his life and he didn't stress about finding his birth family the way some people do. I really admired Sandy for her strength and courage not only in the choices she made when she was a teenager, but for how she championed a young woman in a tough situation.
Overall, this was a tale well written and I liked the steady pace that it had that made it engaging, but not the kind of story that gives you whiplash. I enjoyed reading this tale about life and love and how God can turn a bad situation for good if we just let Him. I loved the way so many things came together throughout the book. This is a book I would recommend to people who like books that deal with issues and run emotionally deep.
I received this book through Litfuse Publicity in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
About the Book:
One young woman. Two very different roads. The choice will change everything.
Even as a pregnant, unwed teen in 1974, Sandy Lincoln wanted to do the right thing. But when an ageless woman approached her in a convenience store with a mysterious prophecy and a warning, doing the right thing became even more unclear. She made the best choice she could . . . and has lived with the consequences.
More than thirty years later, a pregnant teen has come into her life, and Sandy’s long-ago decision has come back to haunt her. The stakes rise quickly, leaving Sandy with split seconds to choose once more. But will her choice decision bring life . . . or death?
