Ladies for Life

Book note: The Proposal, by Angela Hunt

Posted on: September 3, 2009

I just finished reading The Proposal, by Angela Hunt. It was originally published by Tyndale House in 1996, and I’m pleased to see it’s still in print, via iUniverse (see the bottom of this author-hosted page).

It’s a hard-hitting, hair-raising thriller, wherein a quiet young widow who wants to write a book about Down’s Syndrome gets mistaken for a best-selling novelist with a similar name who is proposing to write a novel that exposes the apparent link between first-pregnancy abortion and breast cancer – and has been targeted by the mob.

We’ve sold quite a few books by Angela Hunt in our bookstore, but I don’t remember reading any before this. If this book is any indication, I’ve been missing out. It was suspenseful, witty, and full of substance, too. And that’s not to mention the plot twists.

Parents: You should probably read this before letting even your teens see it. The author handles horrific situations with admirable restraint, and writes from a Christian perspective, but we are talking horrific situations here.

So, ladies. Can you recommend other fiction that takes a pro-life stance? Even just in passing? (Hey, a seed here, a seed there…)
