I received this book free from Instafreebie thinking it was a devotional, boy did I get a surprise. I was going to look at the first 2 or 3 and see what it was like. Big surprise — it wasn't a devotional, it was a novel — and one of the best I've read, I read until 3:30 in the morning, I just couldn't find a place to stop.
The story line was excellent and I could relate to everything going wrong that's happened to me in the past, the characters were detailed and believable. Callie thought she had everything going for her, until she was abandoned at the altar, Her almost groom texted he couldn't go thru with it. then she finds out that it's because he wants her best friend instead. From there things go from bad to worse, When she finds out she's pregnant she considers abortion. Gradually she quits blaming God for all her problems and begins to seek him. This story is so realistic — it could have happened to any one.

This novel gives the true statistics about the problems women have after an abortion, while the media calls a living unborn baby just a glob of cells, that glob of cells actually has a heartbeat by about 10 days after conception. – Instafreebie customer
