Active churchgoers with a pointed sense of right and wrong, they hope to instill their values in this new life. When a corrupt clergyman starts to use Karen to promote his own corrupt anti-abortion agenda, Steven finds himself surrounded by questions of morality. As Karen’s pregnancy takes a turn for the worse and she becomes deathly ill, it starts to appear that the only thing that may save her is an abortion. Will Steven be able to save his wife or baby? Which would he choose?

My Opinion:
That is my last impression of the book. A wonderfully written story, and for a 400+ read, it went so fast. I got immersed deep in the book and was a little sad when it was over. It did leave me wanting a little more.
The characters were great. Though there is a bad guy in this book. Boy, do you hate him too! The other characters I loved. Especially Karen. Though at times, I wish she'd listened to her husband and not the preacher.
Mary was the one character I connected with. Coming from a former abusive relationship, I empathized with her, praying she gets a " Disney ending".
Definitely a story you talk about with your friends!

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
