A Brief Synopsis

Truly an intense read. This book make the reader think: about being right in the middle of a situation you could never have imagined. And you are faced with making decisions you never thought you would ever have to make. Reexamine what you believe is a fabulous strong marriage and then you question it. When suddenly out of the blue something happens that tests your faith, question your marriage, and your spouse. Wonder if you ever really knew your parents or grandparents. This book truly brings the issues to life and raw human emotion.


I recommend this book for several reasons. If you against abortion I believe you need this book to put perspective in to your thinking about abortion. I also recommend this book to those who are for abortion. Because once again it would put perspective into your thinking about abortion. I also recommend this book to those who have had an abortion, I think this book could be a catalyst to dealing with the aftermath of abortion. If you know some one who has had an abortion or you are planing an abortion, I suggest you read this book. If you are in the midst of a difficult marriage read this book. 

Further thoughts 

A truly heartbreaking story. A story of truly controversial issues. Sexual Abstinence, Lack of sexual abstinence and its consequences. Rape, and it’s consequences.  Pregnancy, and abortion, and the consequences of abortion.  Birth, faith, Marriage and it even hinted at divorce. This book shows how easily the decisions we make through out our lives have a ripple effect we often don’t see until it is too late.
