From Publishers Weekly. Francine Rivers, author of Redeeming Love. Liz Curtis Higgs takes readers on a remarkable journey to the Lowlands of Scotland. Higgs, the bestselling author of 20 inspirational books, successfully tries her hand at her first historical novel, spinning a new version of the biblical story of Jacob to show the costs of deception and the triumph of love despite adversity. The story opens in 1764 Scotland, a month before the birth of Rowena McKie's twin boys. A luminous sense of hope shines through this truly wrenching story of characters who are both larger than life and all too human.

A beautiful repackaged edition of Francine Rivers's classic novel that breaks through the many taboos surrounding abortion. In one terrifying moment, Dynah Carey's perfect life is shattered by rape, her future irrevocably altered by an unwanted pregnancy, and her doting family torn apart. Her seemingly rock-solid faith is pushed to the limits as she faces the most momentous choice of her life--to embrace or to end the untimely life within her.

The story gripped my attention; it was hard to put the book down.
This is a powerful book that raises hard, real questions. It forces the reader to enter into the story and live Dyna's life with her. Interspersed with the reassuring voice (word) of God, it elicits a desire to pray hard as the reader feels the pain and struggles with the main character.
In the end, God's strong voice and His perfect ways win the day!
This book addresses a tough subject, but ends victoriously only because the main character is willing to trust God in and through the pain. God makes a way!

I love how Francine writes. Abortion is always a tricky subject then add Christianity into the mix......wowsers. A young Christian girl with everything going for her gets raped one night......Her supposedly CHRISTIAN fiancé pressures her into getting an abortion......in fact everyone pushes for that (except for one man). She feels in her heart that it isn't right...so she has to stand up for herself and her beliefs. Through the story you find out how many women are effected by their choice of abortion...the scars both mental and physical that follow them through life. in the end a beautiful child is born and the mother loves her. something good and wonderful came out of a violent act. a very moving story and I think anyone would find it a good read.

Once again, Francine Rivers shows incredible insight in her writing. Abortion is such a volatile subject yet Rivers portrays both sides of the issue with great perception and gentle understanding. Having had an abortion at age 19 myself, I remember being faced with many of the arguments Dynah Carey faced in this book. Like Dynah's mother, I thought I took the easy route out by having an abortion, but found out afterward about the same terrible post-abortion grief and shame that impacted Dynah's mother so profoundly. Thankfully (after 30 years of struggle), I found forgiveness in Jesus Christ, and now I host post-abortion Bible studies through my church and in my home to help other women heal. It was beautiful to read about Dynah's faith and her struggle with what the world thinks versus what her heart for God thinks. If you want insight into both sides of the issue and the aftermath of choosing either side, read this book. In addition, Rivers' study section at the end, points out where to go for help whether you are dealing with a crisis pregnancy or post-abortion grief and shame. Thank you Francine Rivers for writing this beautiful book! I can validate first hand that the struggle she reveals in this book is spot on.

The book allows one to examine their true feelings about abortion. It shows the effects abortion has had on 3 generations of women. The wounds that the loss of a pre-born baby had or may have on each woman is fully examined. Also the roles an abortion facility director and an abortionist are touched upon. Does the director really care about the needs of a woman with a crisis pregnancy or is she more concerned for her bottom line? What would make a doctor resort to taking lives rather than saving them? Finally will Dynah, whose child was conceived in rape, find someone to give her the support she needs. Will it be her prolife fiancé, her mother still grieving for the loss of her first baby to an abortion, her father hurting from his wife's abortion and unwilling to raise a rapist's child, her pastor, her grandmother who also has lost a child to abortion, or the college friend who's loved Dynah from afar? Will Dynah find a way to love her baby and herself?

I gave this the highest rating because I couldn't put it down. I was looking for another book that I was reading & this one just appeared. I loved the characters and and was warned by the hypocrites. I am a pro-lifer since first hearing the word abortion. I give God the glory for keeping me close to him through the people I met at the clinics. My favorite thing about the book is the personal way God speaks to each person. He is that close to each of us if we just listen. I can't wait to read her other books.

Although I love Author Francine Rivers, and I am very much a Christian who believes that abortion is wrong under any circumstance, this book was a bit of a disappointment. It was a bit predictable, and it was pretty easy to see where the plot was going. Also, there were undercurrents of previous books that made me think I had read The Atonement Child previously. As in the trilogy series Her Mother's Hope, the was the theme of one character having suffered with tuberculosis and having to neglect her child for health reasons. Overall, however, I did enjoy reading the book and will definitely read anything written by Francine Rivers in the future.

I just wish it would have moved along quicker! I do sidewalk counseling at an Louisiana Abortion Clinic and we hear so many different circumstances from the women, their families and friends. We are there for these women, No Matter what the outcome of their appointment resulted in!!! We have story after story of women who stop by the clinic to show us their little precious bundle of joy as well as those who stop as they are driving by and say, don't stop what y'all are doing...y'all saved a my baby's life and he's 4 Yrs Old!!! I could go on and on. One of the main reasons I choose to be a sidewalk counselor is because, babies are dying inside, so I stand at the foot of the cross with them so that THEY DO NOT HAVE TO DIE ALONE!
Wonderful Book that deals with the abortion issue. We go on a journey with Dynah as she deals with a pregnancy from being raped and all the decisions that follow her live that has been forever changed. We also see how the Christian side unfolds and realize that all intentions are not for her good and the only voice one needs to take to heart comes from our relationship with our Lord whose intentions are always for our good and his Love is unconditional no matter what the circumstances.
After reading Redeeming Love,I couldn't wait to wrap myself up in another book by Francine Rivers.
