The Choice


Sandy Lincoln seems to have the perfect life. She's a great student, is a popular cheerleader, has a boyfriend she cares deeply about, and enjoys the love of a stable family. But then the unthinkable happens - she gets pregnant. Suddenly, her dreams seem to be falling apart, and she is forced to choose between what her boyfriend wants her to do and what her heart is dictating. The decision she makes leads her to move in with her aunt in Atlanta, and the day of her move she encounters a strange woman who delivers a prophecy and a warning about the choice Sandy must make. Over 30 years later, a pregnant teen seeks out Sandy for support and advice. Sandy soon finds herself embroiled in a conflict with a school counselor who seems to be pressuring the teen to choose abortion, and an allegation is made that Sandy is pushing her own pro-life agenda on the teen. Sandy's decision to help the teen despite the costs ends up bringing Sandy face-to-face with her own past choices, and places Sandy's very life at risk. 

I found The Choice to be vintage Robert Whitlow, a compulsive read that was impossible to put down, both entertaining and thought-provoking at the same time. I absolutely devoured this book, as I was so caught up in Sandy's world, from the social stigma she encountered to the emotional growth she experiences, to the amazing forgiveness she finds in the arms of Jesus. Whitlow continues to excel at creating believable characters who are as real as a member of your own family. Sandy's story as a teen was as equally engaging as the second half of her story, when she chooses to help the pregnant teen in her role as a teacher, and finds herself facing an unexpected lawsuit. The story has twists that I didn't even anticipate, and ended up being so much more than I even thought. It would be impossible to read this story and not appreciate the incredibly complex choices that women face with unwanted pregnancies, the choices between abortion or keeping the baby or adopting it out. I loved how this story affirms the utter rightness of choosing to give a baby life, and yet it does so in such a natural manner that it does not at all come across as preachy. Numerous times while reading this book, I was thinking to myself, this should be a movie! Here's hoping!

I can say with utter certainty that fans of previous works from Robert Whitlow are going to absolutely love this book. And if you've never given him a try, here's your chance - you won't be disappointed! I award this book 5 out of 5 stars and my highest recommendation.
