The Choice - Robert Whitlow

Summary from Book Sneeze: 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 ancient 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. But now, thirty-four years later, another pregnant, unwed 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 spur-of-the-moment decision bring life . . . or death?

Sandy Lincoln is a seventeen year old high school senior who finds out she is pregnant.  After talking with family and friends, she has a decision to make.  Will she keep the baby?  Put the baby up for adoption?  Or will she have an abortion?  How does that play out later on in Sandy's life?

Thirty-four years later, Sandy is a teacher helping a Mexican student named Maria with the same situation.  Along the way, there are problems and Maria is very confused about who to listen to and what to do.  Will Maria make the right choice with Sandy's guidance?

This was a great story about making the right decision for yourself and your unborn child.  In 1974, abortions just became legal but pregnant students were sent away.  Sandy's choice not only affected her future but the future of her unborn child.  I loved how they continued the story 34 years later showing how Sandy's life was and how she could use her personal experience to help make a decision for another person and their unborn child.  I love how the story went and the discoveries along the way.

A special thanks to Book Sneeze for allowing me to review this book for them.
