Book Review: The Choice

About the 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 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:
I don't think that I have ever been as emotionally attached or inspired by a book as I was with The Choice. Robert Whitlow did a phenomenal job weaving together a story that was jam-packed with humor, emotion, and creativity all balanced out with an healthy dose of spirituality. His writing style is sure to impress even the most critical readers and reviewers.

The topic of abortion can be very tricky but Robert executed this plot superbly! The difficulties of being an un-wed, pregnant teenager were amplified and right fully so, as I imagine the situation is extremely difficult. The journey we travel on with Sandy is touching. The story depicts how teenage pregnancies affect not only the pregnant teenager, but the babies, grandparents, father, siblings, extended family, adoptive family, etc. Our sins don’t just affect ourselves–they have a rippling effect that courses through many lives. As I read of Sandy's choice, Angelica's choice and Maria's choice, I realized that every choice has consequences and results. My heart was racing during the climactic ending that is sure to put any reader at the edge of their seats and was a result of yet another choice.

As of right now, Robert Whitlow's The Choice has won the "My Favorite Book" award. Every, and I mean every emotion a reader hopes to feel when reading a book is here. Emotional elements, thrilling and action packed "scenes" along with an amazing, moving story all ties together for an exceptionally great story. I was thoroughly entertained by the humor and this book kept my attention the whole 413 pages. I enjoyed the legal aspect and jargon that made the story a bit more interesting. I'd rate this book 5 out of 5 stars! 

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

This isn't just a "pro-life" book, but looks at the "pro-choice" argument from another angle.
