The Choice by Robert Whitlow, and a giveaway

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?

My review:

After I received this book, I let it sit for a while. To be honest, it didn't look that interesting and I had second thoughts about having requested it, but I picked it up one afternoon and started reading it. That was a mistake. It wasn't just better than I had thought, it was really, really good. I read up until it was time to go to work. I took it with me to work to read on my break (I rarely do that), and finished it after work.

I liked Whitlow's earlier books the best. He can write a great legal thriller, but he drifted away from that to just write books that center around law and lawyers. This is the best book he has written since he quit writing the legal thrillers, in my humble opinion.

He does an excellent job of portraying the struggle of a young pregnant teen trying to choose what to do with her baby. He also does a great job of portraying the agenda of the pro-abortion crowd and the importance of believing all life is sacred.

The characters in the story are great. There were some surprises in the book, and though it isn't a suspense novel, I had a hard time putting it down. This is a teriffic read and is one I will recommend highly. Whitlow hit a home run with this one.
