I was suprised by this book. It has a very strong pro-life message. The reason why I gave it only 3 1/2 stars is because the ending was too quick and too neat. One of the mysteries is just kind of thrown out there and resolved within a page or less and it left me wanting more. It is a novella/short story but the ending felt like it could have been more. With that said, I fully enjoyed the book and plan to read more books by Catherine Palmer.
