Deliver Us, by June Foster

Published by Desert Breeze Publishing, inc
And available through their website
Bellewood Series, Book 3

A 5 Star Book!!!

Jillian Coleman spent 10 years regreting a decision that she made as an 18 year old, in college.  She went to medical school and is now a doctor, delivering babies and taking care of mother's to be.  But the one baby she cannot save is the one she aborted all those years ago.  Now she wants to start a free clinic for pregnant teens and help them to make the decision to give the baby up for adoption, instead of having an abortion.

Riley Mathis is an x con, 6 months out of prision, where he spent 10 years paying for his crimes of selling and using drugs.  He found God during his time there, and finds a church, where he can do outreach work, helping those kids that are so like the ones he sold drugs to, in his former life.  He also regrets the way he treated a girl while he was in college, a one night stand, who he never saw again.

2 people with lots of regrets and heartaches, who, even though God has forgiven them, they have yet to forgive themselves..

I think one of the reasons this book drew me in so completely, is I know a girl (well, actually more than one) who had an abortion, thinking that was the fastest and best way to rid themselves of an unwanted pregnancy, only to regret it, and wonder what the baby was, and what would it have been, for the rest of their life.  I am sure, had they given the baby up for adoption, they would have wondered  where the baby was, but at least they would have known that the child was alive.

June Foster has written a very enlightening book, and I feel that the whole series is well worth the time and cost to purchase.  If I were still in touch with the woman mentioned, who aborted her child, I'd give this book to her, to let her know God will forgive her, even if she hasn't forgiven herself.

I was given an ecopy of this book to read and review, no other compensation was given.  I am not required to write a positive review, and all opinions expressed here are my own
