Sarah is next in line for a promotion that will end all her financial woes.  She will finally have the money to pay her father’s medical bills, back rent and buy a much needed car…since Buzz seems to be operating on his last cylinder.  There is only one major problem…..she is pregnant, not married and definitely not sure if she can be a mother and travel for her job….IF she gets the promotion.   Sarah is faced with tough decisions and conflicting advice from her coworkers and her mother.  On top of all that she is not sure her boyfriend Matt loves her, or is even mature enough to deal with being a husband, much less a father.    When she goes to the clinic she is approached by an elderly lady who gives her a Christmas card who tells her she will have three dreams about her future.  She throws the card away, but finds it showing up again, she tears in pieces only to find it whole on her car seat…the dreams begin, but since her father’s death she is not having anything to do with God and isn’t sure where to turn. Will Sarah be able to make the right decision for herself and the baby and not let people influence her to do otherwise?  That is the question that will be answered as you turn the pages of “Sarah’s Choice”.

I'm not sure what I expected when I chose to read this book, however from the get-go it was a book well worth reading.  I felt Sarah’s struggle in trying to please everyone in her life, yet not knowing if she was making the right decision.  This book is filled with struggle, hope and forgiveness.  If anyone is dealing with or has had to deal with the decision of having an abortion, giving a child up for adoption or keeping your child, not knowing if you can afford the proper support this is a book that will give you hope and hopefully enable you to restore your faith in God and find forgiveness.    

Disclosure: I was given a copy of this Book by the publisher, Thomas Nelson, through Book Look Blogger program for review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.

Thanks for your kind review of this book based on my screenplay. I would recommend you to check out my book, "The Promise, or the Pros and Cons of Talking with God," which also deals with the themes of faith and forgiveness. It my inspirational true story of first faith and first love and how the two became almost fatally intertwined.
