BISAC: Fiction / Christian / General
Liza Armstrong had the world by the tail, and the last thing she needed standing in her way was an unwanted pregnancy. Successful in her high-powered career, happy in her marriage, and satisfied with her busy life, Liza contemplates abortion as her family stands by helplessly and watches her grow more and more distant. Her sisters cannot believe that Liza would even consider an abortion as they fight their own struggles against infertility. Liza's parents, too, grieve for the daughter who has turned away from them and the God they've always tried to serve.
Can Liza accept this new baby? Can her family's loving intervention be enough to restore her relationship with them, or have her choices alienated her from them forever? Ultimately, can Liza be honest enough to accept that the only lasting redemption is to be found in surrendering to the Lord God who made her and loves her in spite of her past mistakes? Or will the destructive secret that she is hiding not only jeopardize the new life she carries but her relationship with her husband, her sons, and her extended family, as well?
Liza, Dinah, and Amanda must each decide if they trust God with their long-held hopes of Christ-centered marriages and the blessing of babies, or if their fear and uncertainty will destroy their dreams utterly.
