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?
As a fan of Robert Whitlow when I saw his latest book The Choice I knew I had to read it. I have had the pleasure of reading The Alexi Lindale Novels and fell immediately in love with Robert Whitlow's writing. The Choice is another amazing story that really grabbed a hold of me and even still after finishing this book still stays with me. The Choice starts out in Rutland GA in 1974, Sandy Lincoln is 17 years old and is pregnant. Sandy's boyfriend doesn't want the bay and his family has offered to pay for an abortion, Sandy's family wants her to carry the baby and put it up for adoption. So Sandy has a choice. Sandy leaves Rutland, Ga to live with her estranged Aunt Linda for the duration of her pregnancy. On her way to Atlanta, Sandy stops in a gas station and encounters an old woman who calls her Rebekah and when Sandy corrects her she tells Sandy that Sandy is like Rebekah and is pregnant with twin boys, she then asks Sandy if she is going to raise the them and Sandy tells the woman about her plans for adoption and the old woman informs Sandy its a good choice but to make sure the twins are separated at birth. The old woman prophecies that if the twins ever meet, one of them is going to die. The old woman's parting statement is: Some choices bring life, others bring death, Choose well. Then the old woman disappears without a trace.
The Choice is an awesome book that addresses the issue of pro life and pro choice. Robert Whitlow writes an awesome story that truly looks at the choices we make in life and how they affect everyone involved. The characters in this story were very well written and are people you can relate to. I found myself truly caught in their lives, seeing the whole situation unfold. Robert Whitlow writes with authority about Georgia now and in 1974, the adoption process, and the legal aspects of adoption. Robert Whitlow also integrates the theme of trusting God and praying into this story very well. I truly found myself unable to put this book down. I felt like I was there watching the events unfolding right with our characters. I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys Christian fiction! You won't be disappointed! I cannot wait to read more from Robert Whitlow.
