    I m impressed that a popular Christian author would be bold enough to write about a subject like this At the time that this book was published, she was already well known and could have chosen to stick to less controversial topics to avoid offending the masses and losing her broad support base The fact that she chose to write a novel tackling rape and abortion from a pro life stance is admirable and demonstrates the prioritising of Christian values in her profession as a writer One might assu I m impressed that a popular Christian author would be bold enough to write about a subject like this At the time that this book was published, she was already well known and could have chosen to stick to less controversial topics to avoid offending the masses and losing her broad support base The fact that she chose to write a novel tackling rape and abortion from a pro life stance is admirable and demonstrates the priorit...

    Since this book was a Christian novel about an unwanted pregnancy, one would also expect a strong anti abortion message, but one also would expect a novel Ms Rivers delivers on the former, but not the latter The novel was not without some good points and strong writing, but rather inconsistently At times it appeared Ms Rivers forgot about the quality of the novel altogether Having read Sure As the Dawn I should have been prepared for the fact that Ms Rivers is capable of churning out some Since this book was a Christian novel about an unwanted pregnancy, one would also expect a strong anti abortion message, but one also...

    What a deep read The premise of the book is rape and abortion, both horrifically nightmare inducing topics If you have a weak system, do not read this book If, however, you do find yourself desiring to place your feet into a rape victims shoes, please put them on carefully A very heart wrenching look into the REAL church culture surrounding abortion a...

    After reading several other books by Francine Rivers, I was highly disappointed by this novel While most of her books have a clear evangelical message only bordering on preachy, this one was blatant in its aims I understand that her goal was to unpack abortion, and the regrets and ramifications it causes however, this book felt like a con list for the procedure thinly veiled by a story, rather than a well written plot about a central issue While I enjoyed the main character and her love After reading several other books by Francine Rivers, I was highly disappointed by this novel While most of her books have a clear evangelical message only bordering on preachy, this one was blatant in its aims I understand that her goal was to unpack abortion, and the regrets and ramifications it causes however, this book felt like a con list for the procedure thinly veiled by a story, rather than a well written plot about a central issue While I enjoyed the main character and her love interest, the rest of the characters fell flat They were simply tools used by the author to show another pro life point Also, I feel like the psychological wounds of the rape causing Dynah s pregnancy were largely glossed over in order to focus on the author s goal To me, an author, or any kind of Chr...

    So terrible I tried to give Rivers one last chance Even though I already suffered through Redeeming Love, everyone said I should give this one a chance I thought it was supposed to be a novel, but its actually pro life propoganda, which wouldn t be so bad if you classified it as such But ...

    It was seriously hard to read this book I m prolife, yes even in the instance of rape, and personally don t agree with birth control either But seriously, this book wasn t a story, it was a prolife, anyone who thinks abortion is ok is an evil person, pamphlet The woman who runs the abortion clinic Well she s a crap parent with a drunk daughter who of course was on birth control And how many people in one story can have an abortion that ruinned their lives and gave them cancer Drivel It was serio...

    In reality, I would have agreed that Dynah take the morning after pill in order not to get pregnant after she was raped Even when she got pregnant, her boyfriend trained to be a pastor and all her Christian College dean and professors, parents and friends wanted her to have an abortion saying that God will understand Dynah made the decision to listen instead to her heart and her heart said that killing the baby is not right It also broke my heart to read that she was shunned by the College In reality, I would have agreed that Dynah take the morning after pill in order not to get pregnant after she was raped Even when she got pregnant, her boyfriend trained to be a pastor and all her Christian College dean and professors, parents and friends wanted her to have an abortion saying that God will understand Dynah made the decision to listen instead to her heart and her heart said that killing the baby is not right It also broke my heart to read that she was shunned by the College she was studying in because they...
