Product Description

Dynah Carey knew where her life was headed. Engaged to a wonderful man, the daughter of doting parents, a faithful child of God, she has it all. Then the unthinkable happens: Dynah's perfect life is irrevocably changed by a rape that results in an unwanted pregnancy. Her family is torn apart and her seemingly rock-solid faith is pushed to the limits as she faces the most momentous choice of her life: to embrace or to end the life within her. This is ultimately a tale of three women, as Dynah's plight forces both her mother and her grandmother to face the choices they made. Written with balance and compassion, The Atonement Child brings a new perspective to the most controversial topic of our times.

    Great book!

    This book was quite engaging! Not only does it speak to those who have suffered the terror of rape, but also the fear of an unplanned pregnancy. I liked that she brought to light that even Christians can struggle with the temptation of abortion. And as always, her conclusion to the struggles throughout the book was heartwarming and uplifting.

    This book definitely exceeds expectations.

    This story was very well written. I would say it is a must read for someone who has experienced an abortion and regrets it.

    I would definitely say God can bring healing through this book.

    There are times when this book is difficult to read but its well worth sticking with it and reading to the end.

    The development of the story line is excellent. The reader knows that an reconciliation of the main characters is coming but the ending is exceptional. I couldn't get to the ending fast enough.

    Atonement Child was complete with every ingredient I love about Francine Rivers' writing - exquisite detail, fully developed characters, a beautiful flowing narrative and the Living Word breathing through every page. I found myself really empathizing with the main character's plight and even coming to understand the mindset behind the actions of even the characters that I don't particularly like (i.e. Ethan, the dean, the "It's legal" pastor, etc.)

    The novel makes pretty clear what Rivers' stand is on the controversial topic of abortion. As someone who shares her viewpoint on the matter, I found myself moved, appalled and intrigued by the struggles that the characters went through. My heart broke with every figurative "slap in the face" that the main character encountered.

    The book has given me a lot to think about. It has also challenged me to "TRUST AND OBEY" no matter how difficult my circumstances are.

    Overall, I loved the book and how Rivers always manages to make me care about her characters. The one thing I find lacking is the ending - which I found to be rather abrupt. I would've liked to read more about how the characters - especially Joe - were handling what happened at the end of the book. I also would've liked to know what happened to Ethan and the people at NLC. But well... I guess that's just me not wanting such a good book to end.

    Four thumbs up! (Borrowed two thumbs from a friend to make it happen...)
