The Choice: A Book Review and Book Tour

About The Book:

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 ageless 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 . . . and has lived with the consequences.

More than thirty years later, a pregnant 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 choice decision bring life . . . or death?

About The Author:

A Furman University graduate, Whitlow received his J.D. with honors from the University of Georgia School of Law where he served on the staff of the Georgia Law Review.

My Review:

As a review blogger, I have had the opportunity to review a lot of favorite authors, as well as many new-to-me authors. One of those authors that are new to me in the last few years has been Robert Whitlow. In the last month I had the chance to read his most recent release, The Choice. 

The Choice is another stellar release from Whitlow, combining social issues like adoption, abortion and teen pregnancy. I could not put this book down. With each page read, I delved deeper and deeper into Sandy Lincoln's world. The common theme of fighting forgiveness and the results that we face from choices made was also strongly seen throughout.  The book kept me reading into the late night, and though I was very tired the next day, it was so worth it. I look forward to reading more from Whitlow in the future.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
