This book makes you think deep.

She weaves this tale from a pro-life point of view, and this book will resonate most with those coming from that perspective, but it can be a great read for anyone. Feb 16, Lisa at Farm Fresh Adventures rated it it was amazing. After many show resentment and anger towards her, she begins to feel doubts about living with the child inside her. This was not exception Rebecca This is probably one of my favorites books that I have read!

I’m impressed that a popular Christian author would be bold enough to write about a subject like this.

Joe was a great character. I switched to Kindle pretty quickly, and I can’t really recommend the audiobook. It deals with the themes of unwanted pregnancy and abortion. But it fails in every way possibly as prose. This book has cjild sitting by my bedside for probably a year.

The Atonement Child by Francine Rivers BOOK REVIEW – The Book Nerd Girl

A beautiful repackaged edition of Francine Rivers’s classic novel that breaks through the many taboos surrounding abortion. When she is francjne and discovers she is pregnant, her whole world turns upside down. The story of a protected, adored virgin being brutally raped and dealing with a resulting pregnancy could not have been an easy story to write.


With abortion such an issue even among Christians, I would encourage all Christians to read this. I guess they never read what Jesus had to say about that in Mathew 23 rives Luke Written with balance and compassion, The Atonement Child brings a new perspective to the most controversial topic of our times.

This book will have you angry, in tears and ashamed all at the same time. From toshe had a successful writing career in the general market and her books won numerous awards. Her storytelling choices were disgusting, insensitive, and manipulative, to say the least.

Rivers is capable of churning out some really bad junk, as well as her quality novels.
