  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Patty Elliott | 2/11/2014

    " I read this book years ago and really liked it. It is a hard one to get through. This book dealt with a topic that many of us would like to ignore does exist. I think that the Francine Rivers did a wonderful job with this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 April Nix | 2/8/2014

    " Anything Francine writes is good! This one is put into current real life perspective and our godly background beliefs. Never lose sight of God. It all works for the good, of those who believe. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alyssa | 2/6/2014

    " Such a great uplifting story! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam | 2/3/2014

    " This is an amazing, life-changing book! I was so impressed that it showed all the viewpoints of abortion; not just the women having them, but also the doctors and nurses who do them, families, and the repurcussions many years later. The ending was perfect, which is why I had to read the book again right away. This one will definitely stay on my shelves! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynnea | 1/21/2014

    " Great story! It really forces you to think about the gift of life and Scripture to support it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hope | 1/15/2014

    " At first I didn't think that I would like this book as much as I did. But after I read the first couple chapters I started to like it more and more. It was different than any of the other books I've read recently which was a good break for me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Niki Petzoldt | 1/13/2014

    " It was seriously hard to read this book. I'm prolife, yes even in the instance of rape, and personally don't agree with birth control either. But seriously, this book wasn't a story, it was a prolife, anyone who thinks abortion is ok is an evil person, pamphlet. The woman who runs the abortion clinic? Well she's a crap parent with a drunk daughter who of course was on birth control.... And how many people in one story can have an abortion that ruinned their lives and have them cancer???? Drivel...... This book could have been so awesome if the author, I don't know, told a story instead of pushed an agenda. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 10/10/2013

    " Well done in some respects, especially how Rivers handled some difficult-to-define characters, but I did end up skipping a lot of the text--the italicized text(!) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenni | 8/4/2013

    " I love her writing, so this one was good, but I didn't like the ending as much. It felt like that shouldn't have been the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristina | 12/25/2012

    " I heard a lot of hype about this book before I read it but didn't like it as much as Redeeming Love. The story was interesting but a bit slow in spots. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 11/5/2012

    " Great book! It is about the subject of rape though just FYI "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rita Fofah | 8/19/2012

    " This story is about the dilemma of abortion when caught by an unexpected pregnancy before marriage. It has an obvious Christian moral slant, yet I felt that it presented both sides well and certainly made me aware of the feelings of people closely involved in making the decision. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Francis | 9/30/2011

    " Great book about a Christian girl who has to decide to follow her faith or go against it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia Eckles | 7/28/2011
