Dynah Carey knew where her life was headed. Engaged to a wonderful man, the daughter of doting parents, a faithful child of God, she has it all. Then the unthinkable happens: Dynah’s perfect life is irrevocably changed by a rape that results in an unwanted pregnancy. Her family is torn apart and her seemingly rock-solid faith is pushed to the limits as she faces the most momentous choice of her life: to embrace or to end the life within her. This is ultimately a tale of three women, as Dynah’s plight forces both her mother and her grandmother to face the choices they made. Written with balance and compassion, The Atonement Child brings a new perspective to the most controversial topic of our times.
What a thought provoking story! This is a book everyone should read since it really makes you think about the issues of abortions. Francine Rivers does a stellar job at highlight the issue and showing the many negative side effects of it. This is so not a light book but full of depth and emotion. I loved Dynah Carey and her determination to stay true to her beliefs no matter the pressure around her. The situation she was put in was so hard and I couldn't imagine being in it but at the same time God can bring good out of all.
