Item description for Katie's Choice by Tracey Langford...
Overview A story about a winsome young woman named Katie who finds herself pregnant, and her hard-living mother, Daria, who pressures her to get an abortion. Katie meets with a nurse in an abortion clinic and speaks to a counselor at a pregnancy resource center. She decides an abortion is her best choice. Katie attempts to move on with her life, starts a career and finds herself falling in love with a Christian man. But her past continues to haunt her. She thought she had chosen freedom and a future; but shame and regret haunt her and keep her inner life a closed book even to the man she loves. Love, truth and grace pursue Katie, though, until her defenses finally crumble. This moving tale of redemption chronicles an emotional journey out of self-loathing and spiritual denial into hope and life-changing love. Debut novelist Tracey Langford was strongly encouraged to "reduce" her own pregnancy. She declined, and now is the proud homeschooling mother of quadruplets. As part of her research, Tracey sat in mock interviews with counselors at pregnancy centers, role-playing the part of a troubled pregnant girl.

Katie's Choice Nov 25, 2004
History seems to be repeating itself when Katie finds herself pregnant. Her own mother, Daria, faced a similiar choice after a brief, passionate affair, and chose to keep her child- Katie herself. Now, Daria urges Katie to abort as the smart thing to do. Her decision to obey tears her world in two, haunting her and altering the way she deals with life. Sure that she herself was a mistake, guilty over killing her child, Katie feels that there is no hope for her- but friends who love her against the odds and despite all the barriers give her a chance to begin again with Christ.
**** While most Christian novels are filled with nothing but "good" people who would never make the choices Katie did, this one takes the bold move to acknowledge that "good" people still sin. If the abortion figures are accurate, then there are millions of young women who could benefit from this book. ****
Awesome, inspirational work Aug 28, 2003
This book was great. Mrs. Langford can paint such an amazing picture with words. I, too, felt Katie's pain while reading. The ending moved me to tears. This book made me really proud to be a Christian in this world!
