The obvious message of the book is that every life is precious to God and created by Atonfment in the womb, regardless the circumstance.


Wonderful read, and would certainly recommend to anyone. Oh how the world has changed!

With help from her family and a true friend, she must find the strength to follow the path that her Savior chipd for her, and she just might find everything she could ever ask for.
