If you're looking for a novel that has a happy ending, don't read this book. This is a very sad novel. Which is precisely the point. Its aim is not to give us a warm fuzzy feeling, but to make us recoil over the horrors of abortion, feel ashamed, and motivate us to do something about it.
As a pro-life activist, DeParrie is well qualified to write a book like this. As he notes in the after-word "This story is not really fiction. I have merely compiled true stories from within the pro-life movement." What this brilliant work of fiction does is convey the truth - a horrible truth about abortion. It is a story well-researched, and well-written.
