The Choice
By
Robert Whitlow

There’s too much in this book for me to try and wrap it all up in a cute, little package for you, so here’s what thomasnelson.com has to say about it:

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 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 spur-of-the-moment decision bring life . . . or death?

When I picked up this book, I expected it to be the standard story of a pregnant teenager and the choices she has to face….and that’s exactly how it starts out. What I didn’t expect were the twists and turns Sandy would face and how this book would end up coming full circle with her past choices coming back to haunt her. Sandy’s story was an awesome reading adventure and I loved seeing how it all played out.

I was really surprised at Robert Whitlow’s ability to understand female emotions and personalities and write in such a way that I could really connect with. Since I usually find myself reading Chick Lit books, which are mainly written by women, it was a nice change to read a story by a male author that really spoke to women. My only complaint would be that the climax happens very late in the book and the story seems to get wrapped up rather quickly from there.

Buy the book:

This book can be found at Amazon and Barnes and Noble, as well as many other retailers.
