This is a moving story about a college student who is raped and becomes pregnant. She has to decide what to do- whether to have the baby or abort. While this novel isn't action packed, it good. It is a character study of one family and how they deal with the horrible crime of rape and the subsequent pregnancy. At times this book made me sad, other times angry, and sometimes moved. It's the only book I've read by Rivers but I hope to find and read more.

Another great Francine Rivers' story. Deals with some pretty major topics (rape & abortion), but with tenderness. Teaches God's mercy & love through 2nd chances.

An unwed pregnant college student is able to find redemption but not without a lot of ups and downs and twist and turns. In her fantastic story telling way Francine Rivers weaves another tale of God's love and redemption like no other author has ever done. This is my forth River's novel and I want to read every thing her pen has touched. Every time Francine's subjects turn a corner you want to cheer or scream no don't do that but God's divine will always comes thru in the end. Loved the book. If you or anyone you know has ever had an abortion this is a must read for them. It will help them deal with the grief that dwells within their heart and know that God does forgive.

Mrs. Rivers has a wonderful way of discussing very current and relavant topics in a fiction story which brings the issue to your heart. The Atonement Child is very exemplary of this. She portrays the issue of Abortion in a very real and complete picture. She boldly approaches every aspect and people's opinions about abortion. In the end she encourages and even dares the reader to see through the issue to God on the other side.
