About the Author
Francine Rivers began her literary career at the University of Nevada, Reno, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and journalism. From 1976 to 1985, she had a successful writing career in the general market, and her books were highly acclaimed by readers and reviewers. Although raised in a religious home, Francine did not truly encounter Christ until later in life, when she was already a wife, a mother of three, and an established romance novelist.
Francine and her husband, Rick, live in Northern California and enjoy the time spent with their three grown children and every opportunity to spoil their grandchildren.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Liz Higgs portrays Dynah Careys struggle with rape and her difficult decision to abort the resulting pregnancy, a decision that profoundly affects her relationship with her family. With her versatile vocal range, Higgs depicts Dynahs feelings of victimization, which challenge her rock-solid faith. She depicts Dynahs sense of betrayal--first, by her fianc, and then by her college dean, who tells her to leave to protect her fiancs reputation. Detailed characterization gives the sense of multiple narrators. Higgss portrayal of Dynahs rising anxiety as she waits for God to provide answers is especially believable. Higgs empathy and sensitivity animate the entire reading.

I think this is a beautiful book. Maybe it's not for everyone, according to some reviews I've seen, so I'l tell you why I loved it so you can make yur decision.
I could absolutely relate to the main character, which is why I love it. I attended Christian private colleges (yes plural), which were rife with judgment, "holier than thou", legalism, and men who wanted to be pastors (and now are...) whose behavior I found less-than-inspiring and somewhat traumatic. I once had a young man in college tell me, the FIRST time he ever talked to me, that he was interested in me ("God told me you might be the one"), followed by, "I'm still a virgin but I did get b**w-jobs in high school, but I needed them." He was looking for his virgin wife...lol So, I absolutely loved the setting of this story, and found the main characters relatable and realistic-- completely, based on my experience on Christian campuses.
In addition, on the topic of abortion, I know multiple generations of women in my family who had secret (not so secret anymore... it's now dinnertime conversation) abortions. So again, it's realistic completely.
THANK YOU Francine Rivers for your gorgeous writing. Your books touch my heart.
This is a powerful book that raises hard, real questions. It forces the reader to enter into the story and live Dyna's life with her. Interspersed with the reassuring voice (word) of God, it elicits a desire to pray hard as the reader feels the pain and struggles with the main character.
In the end, God's strong voice and His perfect ways win the day!
This book addresses a tough subject, but ends victoriously only because the main character is willing to trust God in and through the pain. God makes a way!
