REVIEW - Sarah's Choice by Rebecca St. James & Nancy Rue #RPRC2014

Only one thing stands in the way of Sarah's success . . . her unborn baby.

Sarah Collins is about to receive a promotion that will give her everything she's ever wanted: a huge pay increase, a new car, a fabulous apartment, and first-class travel.

But then she discovers she's pregnant. And while she thinks she loves her boyfriend, Matt, she isn't sure he's mature enough to be a responsible father. And the job she's pursuing is open only because the previous employee is out on maternity leave. She'd never be able to handle the travel as a single mom.

Torn between advice from her coworkers, the adamant insistence of her mother and sister that she keep the baby, her insecurity about her relationship with Matt, and the void where her father should be, Sarah has no idea how to make this decision.

A Christmas card from a mysterious old woman is the catalyst for three visions of her future—and may just be the miracle she needs. But can she trust the visions? Are they the yearnings of a conflicted heart? Or are they true visions from the God she thought had turned his back on her?

For every woman who has made painful decisions, Sarah's Choice offers comfort, wisdom, and hope.

I was so moved and able to relate to this book more than I thought I would be. No, I have never been in that situation. But so much about her story with a death driving her away from God, that totally happened in my life.

I loved the dual perspective that we got from Sarah and from Matt. I liked we got to see the effect that it all had on the people around as well. I loved all the characters and especially the internal battle that Sarah went through, it felt authentic and genuine.

This was most definitely an overall good read. Good plot, great substance and characters that I love! I grew up listening to Rebecca St. James and was pretty surprised to find she was a writer and not an average writer but a great one.

I think that she and Nancy Rue have a home run in chic lit!!
