From the New York Times bestselling author of Redeeming Love and The Masterpiece--and "one of [Christian fiction's] most honored and talented writers" (Library Journal)--comes a heart-wrenching but uplifting story about a highly controversial topic.Dynah Carey knew where her life was headed. Engaged to a wonderful man, the daughter of doting parents, a faithful child of God--she has it all. Then the unthinkable happens: Dynah's perfect life is irrevocably changed by a rape that results in an unwanted pregnancy.Her family is torn apart and 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 life within her.This is ultimately a tale of three women, as Dynah's plight forces both her mother and her grandmother to confront the choices they made. Written with balance and compassion, The Atonement Child brings a new perspective to a widely debated topic.

Our customer reviews

Rivers really knows how to write hope and love into a book. Its amazing! She inspires me and brings God's Love to the forefront of everybook she writes. I was a bit confused in the beginning as I felt the action started too quickly, before I got to know Dynah properly. But this could have been on purpose, since it is the decisions she takes that defines her! I would definitely recommend it!show more
