Sarah's Choice by Rebecca St James

Sarah's ChoiceSarah's Choice by Rebecca St James
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is not an unusual story I suspect. This can happen to anyone in real life.

You have money worries, your rent is in arrears, you hide bills because you can't afford to pay them. The she gets a job.

The person she is filling in for is out on Maternity leave.

She finds she's in the running for a step up the lady, but how ironic! She has now found herself pregnant. Unmarried, has a boyfriend of course, but he's not mature. Is he Father material? she doubts it.

One day at the clinic she is given a card from an old lady, she rips it up, only for the card to keep reappearing in the most unlikely places. What is its message.

Should she keep the baby? Can she manage travelling with the baby and her job?

In amongst all of this her Father gets taken ill and passes.

I found this a very gripping read. It had me turning page after page.

I received my copy from Thomas Nelson--FICTION via Net Galley. That in no way persuades me to write favourable reviews, this is my honest account of how I felt about the book I have just read.

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.
