Sarah's Choice

About The Book:  Only one thing stands in the way of Sarah's success . . . her unborn baby.  Sarah Collins is about to receive a promotion that will give her everything she's ever wanted: a huge pay increase, a new car, a fabulous apartment, and first-class travel.  But then she discovers she's pregnant. And while she thinks she loves her boyfriend, Matt, she isn't sure he's mature enough to be a responsible father. And the job she's pursuing is open only because the previous employee is out on maternity leave. She'd never be able to handle the travel as a single mom. Torn between advice from her coworkers, the adamant insistence of her mother and sister that she keep the baby, her insecurity about her relationship with Matt, and the void where her father should be, Sarah has no idea how to make this decision.  A Christmas card from a mysterious old woman is the catalyst for three visions of her future—and may just be the miracle she needs. But can she trust the visions? Are they the yearnings of a conflicted heart? Or are they true visions from the God she thought had turned his back on her?  For every woman who has made painful decisions, Sarah's Choice offers comfort, wisdom, and hope.
About The Author(s):  Rebecca St. James is both a Grammy and multiple Dove Award recipient as well  as a best-selling author whose books include Wait for Me and What Is He Thinking??  Her leading role in the pro-life film Sarah's choice won critical acclaim.  A passionate spokesperson for Compassion International, Rebecca has provided sponsorship to more than 30,000 children through her worldwide concerns.
Nancy Rue is the best-selling author of more than 1o0 books for tweens, teens, and adults, two of which have won Christy Awards.  Nancy is also a popular speaker and radio guest due to her expertise in tween and teen issues.  She and her husband, Jim, have raised a daughter of their own and now share their Tennessee lake home with two yellow labs. 
My Thoughts On The Book:  I love books that draw you in from the first page and although this book does not do that it does eventually make you sit down and listen to Sarah's story.  The story of choices, questions, and God really comes together.  Abortion is an ugly word to many and the books handing of  pro-life verses abortion can really strike a nerve with the reader.   Sarah's friendship with Audrey was my favorite part of the whole story as one pregnant woman helps another one make the most important decision of her life.  This is a good read and if you get the chance be sure and see the movie.  It follows the story line pretty close.  I am delighted that I had the chance to review this book.
