Product Description

It's 1974 and abortion is newly legal---but that doesn't make it an easy decision for 17-year-old Sandy, whose boyfriend and family want her pregnancy to "go away." Torn, she meets a stranger who prophesies that she's carrying twins---and that if these brothers ever meet, one will die. What can it mean? And what should she do?

Publisher's Description

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?

"The Choice shows the struggles of unplanned pregnancy and the courageous act of adoption in a way that I haven't read before . . ." —Abby Brannam-Johnson, former Planned Parenthood Director and author of Unplanned

"Whitlow captures the struggle of many women trapped in the battle over abortion in a truly sympathetic and affecting way." —Booklist

    Sandy Lincoln is 17 and pregnant. The year is 1974, and abortion is now legal. Her boyfriend and his parents expect her to abort the baby. She chooses to give her child life.

    She goes to Atlanta to live with her aunt Linda until her baby is born, and finish her senior year. And old woman comes up to Sandy in a store and tells her to expect twins. Included in this prophecy is the advice to adopt out the babies separately. Even though Sandy thinks this is odd and unlikely, she chooses two prospective couples from the adoption agency

    At the end of nine months, she delivers fraternal twin boys.

    Many years later, Sandy is teaching high school English. Sixteen-year-old Maria, a girl Sandy has tutored, is pregnant. The school counselor and Marias father want her to abort her baby. Sandy wants to make sure Maria knows her options, so she can make the right choice for her baby.

    This book shows us two sides of the abortion issue. We see strong, realistic characters. Sometimes, the choice was abortion, and sometimes it was life. The author makes the point that either decision is a choice.

    This is a book I would recommend to anyone interested in this subject matter. The characters are believable, and for the most part, likable. If you like contemporary fiction, this would be a good choice.

    One of the best Authors writing in this current day and age. Never a curse word or bad language. It is refreshing to read an author who can write an entire novel and it missing the filthy language, great for any young person to read. His best novel to me was "JIMMY" and I highly recommend that if you enjoy great reading to read all of his books, They are all part of our over 4,000 book library. He is excellent. CTH

    An excellent book. I love to read and want the books I read to be well written and be written from a Christian view point, which this one was. "Abortion", which undermines our society is an issue even Christians want to side step at times. I love the compassion for those who face these issues.

    This was a book that I am so glad I read. Abortion is something very near to my heart. I have been an unashamed pro-life supporter for most of my life, and this book fit well into my belief system. It is a powerful book with a timeless message.

    This book couldn't have picked a better starting year--my birth year. That caught my attention from the beginning. And Sandy was a fantastic character that I so enjoyed watching mature physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I was so glad she made the choice she did even though there was counseling on either side. I could never imagine being placed in her position. I always knew what the right decision should be for an unplanned teen pregnancy, but this put the decision into a real life situation.

    When the story jumped ahead to 2008, I was quite pleased with the direction the story went. To see that Sandy continued to trust God and went on with her life was really neat. But the story was expertly written as it continued to take twists and turns. My emotions were played with on more than one occasion, but it was a fantastic ride. The ending nearly took me down one road, and I was prepared to accept it. And then the story took a 180 degree turn that truly astounded me!

    There was a supernatural element of the story about which I was not quite sure, but in the end, it made perfect sense. While the gospel message was never spelled out, there is no doubt God was a major player in this story. The author is a master storyteller who writes with passion and intensity.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about social issues with a Christian worldview.

    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

    This was an exciting, well written novel. The characters were believable and the suspense was good. I love a happy ending and a book that makes you feel good about life and this book did both those things.
