Dynah is a young lady going to a Christian college. There she meets the guy of her dreams and they are going to be married. One evening on her way home from work she is raped. From this point on this book makes you question all your beliefs and makes you ask yourself-just what would I do? Dynah’s life falls apart and she is faced with many life changing decisions. Throughout the book Dynah falls back on her faith and this leads her to making the decisions she ultimately does. This book is definitely a good read especially for anyone who has ever experienced a rape and a resulting pregnancy or anyone that has had an abortion or may be considering one and is conflicted.
Well I didn’t get to do much reading the last few days. I wasn’t feeling the best and with Easter and company on the weekend I didn’t get to relax with my book much.
Tonight I’m going to relax with a glass of wine and my book and just read. Just the thought of it is calming. What I have read of it so far is very good and seems to only be getting better.
Hopefully I’ll get it done in the next day or so, depending on work and unforeseen things and get my review up.
I am so excited to read this book. I read the first two-A Great and Terrible Beauty and Rebel Angels and thoroughly enjoyed them both. I’m really looking forward to revisiting Gemma and the other girls and seeing what they’re up to now. I guess this is the final book in the trilogy. I’m sad about that. It’s been a great series so far.
However, the story is a good one about hope and determination. It is about a six-year old little girl named Emma who disappears one day on a beach. It’s a story about how even seconds of not paying attention can change your life and those around you in a big way.
I think it was a good story. I don’t think I’d say it was great-it was just okay for me.
I love Michelle Richmond’s description of the fog. It rings so true and just sounds beautiful to me. It really captures the essence of fog beautifully.
“the fog, its dramatic presence, the way it deadens sound. The way it simply stops, rather than fading, opaque whiteness suddently giving way to clarity. Crossing from fog into sunlight, one has the feeling of having emerged. Traveling in the other direction is like sinking into a mysterious, fairy-tale abyss”
