Goodreads: Brad Cutler, twenty-eight, is a rising star at his New York ad agency, about to marry the girl of his dreams. Anyone would agree he has it all – a great career, a beautiful and loving fiance, and a fairy tale life ahead of him when memories of a high school girlfriend begin to torment him. Lost innocence and one very difficult choice flood his conscience, and he is no longer sure what the future will bring except for this: He must find his old love and make amends. Haunted by the past and confused about the future, he turns to God seeking forgiveness and redemption.
Ope’s Opinion: This was an awesome story! Take out all the preaching and the judgement that I felt and I would have given this book five chairs. If I knew someone who had an abortion and was looking for answers from God, I would tell them to read Francine Rivers book – An Atonement Child. It was a much better book at letting you know how forgiving God is.
Emma seemed to be a real person with questions about God. Brad was not perfect either. I liked that. Laura on the other hand seemed like she was beautiful, perfect, and always forgiving. Sorry that is just not very realistic. If she got upset with Brad – it just didn’t come across very well in the book.
If you love Christian fiction and are looking for more great reads – go look and see what Francine Rivers is writing.
