A powerful and emotional story. Each of the characters was well fleshed out.
Did I enjoy it? I'm not sure how to answer that. I'm a Christian, but confess, I found it overly preachy, which I don't like.
I'm pretty sure it's meant to be a fictional novel, and yet it dwells unremittingly on prolife issues. Now don't get me wrong. I AM PROLIFE! But the poor girl was raped for goodness sake! I felt that whole traumatic issue was glossed over some what.
I didn't like the epilogue. I felt it was quite unnecessary after everything else in the story. And I didn't bother to fully read the last page entitled, 'Beloved.' As there was little or no encouragement for any rape victim who might read it.
Basically, this story is the author's prolife views wrapped up in a novel.
The book was given to me, so I felt I should read it, especially as I really enjoyed, 'Redeeming Love.' In my mind there is no comparison between the two books.
