About this book:
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 ancient 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. But now, thirty-four years later, another pregnant, unwed teen has come into her life, and Sandyâ€™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 spur-of-the-moment decision bring life . . . or death?
My Review: Vintage Whitlow! Iâ€™ve been a fan of Robert Whitlow since his first book The List. The Choice is an excellent story with a great message. Our choices make a difference. The story opens shortly after the Roe vs. Wade decision that legalized abortion in the United States. Young Sandy Lincoln has a choice to make one that would affect not only her life but the lives of the babies sheâ€™s carrying.
This story draws you in very quickly with strong characters that are easy to recognize in real life. Sandy, the perfect daughter, good grades, cheerleader, and football player boyfriend. Sandyâ€™s mom, is the â€œperfectâ€ housewife and mother where nothing is out of place. Sandyâ€™s father is the man of the house and successful businessman. Sandyâ€™s pregnancy threatens to implode this family. You then have Brad, the boyfriend, and his family the view the pregnancy as something that is easy to fix, just â€œget rid of it.â€
Robert Whitlow has the ability to stir your emotions through his writing. You will feel many of the same feelings the characters of the book do. This is a serious story line so not many laughs in the story but there are definitely times you will tear up (or if youâ€™re like me just cry out loud.)
I would recommend this story to any current Whitlow fans. If youâ€™ve not read Whitlow before and you enjoy stories that look deal with real life situations in an informative, realistic manner with authentic emotion youâ€™ll enjoy this story.
