This month, I had the great privilege of being on a blog tour for this new book by Robert Whitlow called The Choice. The blog tour is conducted by Litfuse Publicity Group. Below is the synopsis of the book, my thoughts and information about the author. So take the time to read below and find out about this book. You won't be disappointed!
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?
Robert Whitlow did a great job with this book. I thought that the subject of the book was so relevant to today's society as we still battle with the idea of abortion and whether life begins at conception or not. The book does a great job with the characters as they each face the teenage preganacy and how it effects not just the teenager but everyone around her. I love the part in the book where Sandy (the pregnant teenager) has trouble falling asleep and decides she needs to take a sleeping pill. But on her way to get the pill, she pauses as she realizes that it would harm the child within her. This was quite a wake up call for Sandy as she realizes that taking the life of this child would be wrong. I love that Sandy chose life in spite of it not being a popular or easy decision.
This story would be a great one for any teenager to read. It would help them to contemplate all that takes place when they don't practice abstinence before marriage. I would highly recommend this book. It has a great story and a strong message that life is worth it!
