Sarah's Choice by Rebecca St. James book review {spoiler free}

In Sarah Collins’s mind, only one thing stands in the way of her success . . . an unborn baby.Sarah 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. Sarah would never be able to handle the travel as a single mom. Torn between advice from her coworkers, the 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 just may 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.

Fandom Monthly Magazine was given a copy of this book by BookLookBloggers in exchange for an honest review.
I enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I would. I quite liked Sarah`s character, as she was forthright from the start and I could understand her confusion and hesitation when she found out she was pregnant. If I were in her shoesI would most certainly freak out. One thing I loved in this novel was the writing. It was a perfect pairing to the story itself. The author did an amazing job making this books characters both realistic, and relatable. While I may not face all the same problems as Sara, I could see how some readers could side with her. The one major problem I had with this book is that it was extremely religious. While I was not offended by anything in the book having to deal with that element, I may have not read the book if I had known that fact prior to reading it. This book talks about abortion, pregnancy, and other personal and sometimes difficult/controversial topics, so I would not recommend this to anyone who is uncomfortable with those themes.
