The Atonement Child - Francine Rivers
From the New York Times bestselling author of Redeeming Loveand The Masterpiece--and "one of [Christian fiction's] most honored and talented writers" (Library Journal)--comes a heart-wrenching but uplifting story about a highly controversial topic.
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 confront the choices they made. Written with balance and compassion, The Atonement Child brings a new perspective to a widely debated topic.
