From the New York Times bestselling author of Redeeming Love and The Masterpiece—and “one of [Christian fiction’s] most honored and talented writers” (Library Journal)—comes a heart-wrenching but uplifting story about a highly controversial topic.
Dynah Carey knew where her life was headed. Engaged to a wonderful man, the daughter of doting parents, a faithful child of God—she has it all. Then the unthinkable happens: Dynah’s perfect life is irrevocably changed by a rape that results in an unwanted pregnancy. Her family is torn apart and her seemingly rock-solid faith is pushed to the limits as she faces the most momentous choice of her life: to embrace or to end the life within her. This is ultimately a tale of three women, as Dynah’s plight forces both her mother and her grandmother to confront the choices they made. Written with balance and compassion, The Atonement Child brings a new perspective to a widely debated topic.

Thank you Mrs. Rivers for following God's direction with this book. I am a Christian woman and have often thought about the choice I would make in this situation. Thank you. His love is everlasting and His grace is enough!

This book was recommended to me by a friend as a resource for dealing with women who have had an abortion. Even though I have never personally experienced this, this book touched me very deeply....kept me thinking how this would end. I recommend this to all who are struggling with such a major decision such as this....
