The Choice- Book Review

The Choice- Robert Whitlow
Publisher- Thomas Nelson
Genre- Christianncontemporary 
Pages- 413
Rating- 5 stars
The book begins shortly after the Roe vs. Wade court case that legalized abortion in America. Sandy the straight A student, perfect daughter, cheerleading captain, finds herself pregnant at the tender age of 17. Her decision, wether or not to terminate the pregnancy, is influenced by many. Her boyfriend and his family think the best thing is to "fix" the mistake and have an abortion. Her parents want what is best for her future, leaving the decision up to her. Sandy's choice, though difficult as it was, was adoption. Later on, Sandy learns that her choice had many consequences that she will have to face.

The Choice, being the first book I have read from the best- selling author, Robert Whitlow, was thoroughly impressing. Impressing is an understatement. From the writing style to the plot, everything was excellently well-crafted to make an over the top book. Robert Whitlow focuses mainly on legal dramas, but his detailed descriptions on such a delicate subject was amazing.

Robert showed many different choices that girls in Sandy's circumstance made. He touches on, abortion, adoption, rape, and the choice to keep the baby. With each choice he gives a glimpse of the consequences that the mother faces later on. I loved the fact that the author, being a man, was still very capable of adding so much description, to make it a good read. The book, not a cheesy, laugh- out- loud, romantic story. It is a book that dealt with some serious topic, which I enjoyed, giving the book a three- dimensional feel.

The Choice was a very deep, emotional, and with a twist at the end as things begin get a thriller feel, was a great book. I recommend this book to all readers, you will not be disappointed. The Choice gets its deserved 5 stars!

I received this book for free, from BookSneeze, in exchange for my honest review.
