REVIEW: THE ATONEMENT CHILD


Author: Francine Rivers

Genre: Fiction (Christian)

Year Of Publication: 1997

My Rating: 5 Stars

SUMMARY
Dynah Carey's life is just as she'd always dreamed it would be. Engaged to a wonderful man, the daughter of doting parents, a faithful child of God, she has it all.
 But in one horrific, terrifying moment, Dynah's world is shattered by rape, her future irrevocably altered by an unwanted pregnancy, her family torn apart by the tragedy and the long-held secrets it brings to light.
 As the firm foundations around her shift and crumble, Dynah's faith is pushed to the limits, and she faces the most momentous choice of her life- to embrace or to end the untimely life within her.

"Rivers proves once more she can keep readers transfixed and wanting more." -Christian Retailing
MY VERDICT
This story literally had me in tears :') I guess it's quite obvious now that i'm obsessed with christian fiction, because I always award them 5 stars-always. I mean what's not to love about them? And Francine Rivers is such a wondeful writer.
 Atonement Child surrounds a very sensitive topic, rape. And I think the author really handled the topic appropriately. There is so much to say about this book, but all I can say is that God has a special way of turning your sorrow into a song of praise!
