[Book Review] Sarah's Choice by Rebecca St James

Sarah's ChoiceSarah's Choice
In Sarah Collins's mind, only one thing stands in the way of her success . . . an unborn baby.

Sarah is about to receive a promotion that will give her everything she's ever wanted: a huge pay increase, a new car, a fabulous apartment, and first-class travel.

But then she discovers she's pregnant. And while she "thinks "she loves her boyfriend, Matt, she isn't sure he's mature enough to be a responsible father. And the job she's pursuing is open only because the previous employee is out on maternity leave. Sarah would never be able to handle the travel as a single mom.

Torn between advice from her coworkers, the insistence of her mother and sister that she keep the baby, her insecurity about her relationship with Matt, and the void where her father should be, Sarah has no idea how to make this decision.

A Christmas card from a mysterious old woman is the catalyst for three visions of her future-and just may be the miracle she needs. But can she trust the visions? Are they the yearnings of a conflicted heart? Or are they true visions from the God she thought had turned His back on her?

For every woman who has made painful decisions, "Sarah's Choice "offers comfort, wisdom and hope.

Ohh Sarah Collins! Beautiful & on her way to a huge promotion, she is finally getting that break that she needs to get out of the financial hole that she's in. But then she starts getting sick and finds out that she's now pregnant and everything that she worked for so hard has to disappear. Unless she makes a choice whether to have this baby or have an abortion. 

Sarah's boyfriend Matt still acts as if he was fifteen years old and never had a plan for the future. But Sarah's pregnancy is like a huge reality check & while she's making a choice, Matt has to go his own emotions and fears to finally understand that he needs to do the right thing. 

When Sarah gets a weird Christmas card from a strange lady, she doesn't give it much thought but after her first vision, she knows that it's God speaking to her, to guide her towards the right direction. Three visions that will show her what her life might be with her unborn baby and what life will be if she ends human's life. Throughout the book we see Sarah's growth and her relationships with other people. Having family on her side & still feeling the loss of her father is very raw and emotional and makes the reader feel it as well. 

I loved Sarah's Choice. Period. Although I thought it was a little slow in the beginning and everything was about babies, story had an amazing plot & I loved all the characters. Sarah's and Audrey's conversations were definitely my favorite. Sarah opened up and told stories about her father which made me bond to her more. This was very emotional story for me and definitely made me cry few times. Absolutely amazing writing! Loved it!
