This is propaganda pushing against abortion. I have every respect for somebody choosing not to have an abortion, but do we really need to read a hefty novel to hear the message that ABORTION IS ALWAYS WRONG? Please, go bang your Bible over the head of someone who cares. I assume this is written for a Christian audience, but aren't most Christians already reformed?

Here's an issue I take: Dynah has to have this baby who is the result of rape in order to atone for previous abortions. How utterly morbid. Please also do some fact checking prior to writing a novel so that interested parties don't continue to poke so many holes in your text that it becomes illegible.
