I’m not much of a novel reader. Actually, it takes a great storyteller to draw me in and Francine Rivers did just that with The Atonement Child.
The storyline is on a subject that is very close to my heart, a subject that is so controversial…abortion.
With every page that was turned, the lives of the characters drew me in...I couldn’t put this book down! The writer takes the issue of abortion and shows us how many lives are touched by this so called “choice.” If you're looking for a good (great) book to read during your lazy days this summer...this one is it!
Here's the review from Amazon: "In one terrifying moment, Dynah Carey's perfect life is shattered by rape, her future irrevocably altered by an unwanted pregnancy, and her doting family torn apart. Her seemingly rock-solid faith is pushed to the limits as she faces the most momentous choice of her life--to embrace or to end the untimely life within her."
I want to give You thanks today, for always being there to listen when we call upon Your name. Thank you for the changed hearts who heard Your whisper to trust You with their pregnancy. Thank you for the lives that now give glory to Your name because of the "choice" their mothers made to give them life!
Father, I pray that You'll bring comfort and renewal to those who did not trust You with their pregnancy. I ask, that their hearts will know how much You love them and that they will hear You say... "come home my child, I never stopped loving you." In Jesus name...Amen!
