I enjoyed this Christian romance. It is a story of a contemporary romance that is tested by events in the past. Jillian, an obstetrician, and Riley, a relatively new Christian recently released from prison, have a budding romance. But they had met once before, during a wild college party. Unknown to Jillian, Riley is the father of the child resulting from that meeting, the child Jillian aborted. Riley is torn. He doesn't want to lie, but if he told her he was the father of her aborted child, she might hate him.
Foster has crafted a good story of God redeeming past sins. Both Jillian and Riley have been transformed by God's grace. They are not the people they were ten years ago. An added element to the plot is a doctor who wants to marry Jillian. He is a hot shot and arrogant man. Riley is an ex-con with a compassionate heart. It is interesting to see how their characters are revealed.
This is a good novel about God healing past hurts and about forgiveness. The characters are crafted well. You'll learn about the after effects of abortion and a little about ministry to teens. A good Christian romance dealing with several issues.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
