Today I have the privilege of sharing about Ryana Peterson’s new prolife book!
I’ll admit that I was meant to share my thoughts about To Save a Life in this post, but I haven’t finished reading it yet. Sooo . . . I’m afraid you’ll just have to wait a little longer for my review! 😉 But it is coming, and it also means that now I get to do an extra pro-life post. 😀 So consider this post a bonus!!
And now, here is the beautiful cover of To Save a Life!! I don’t know about you, but I love it!
Title: To Save a Life
Series: Book #1 of Natty’s Warriors
Author: R.M. Peterson
Release Date: November 6, 2021
To Save a Life tells the story of two young couples: one with big questions and one with the answers they need. When a baby is born alive after a botched abortion, the parents are faced with questions they have never considered. This story follows their journey to the answers they need regarding Christ, the value of Life, and what they must do to turn their lives around.
Genre: contemporary pro-life novel
Content: mildly detailed medical sequences (no gory details, but mentions blood), abortion mentioned and explained, unmarried couple have a child, but no details prior to the baby being born, mild descriptions of hemophilia and miscarriage (mostly just mentioning that a character has them).
Right now my sisters and I are reading a review copy of TSAL together, and I’m so thankful to have the opportunity to be reading this special book. Ryana has written loveable (and not so loveable characters), and I’m interested to find out how the rest of the story will unfold. So far this book has made me stop and think more about what it might be like to be involved in an abortion from many different angles–the mother and father, family, abortion clinic workers . . .
I’m also thankful for the reminder of all the brokenness that results from what we call “abortion.” Having these precious lives brought to mind through this story makes it all seem more real and vivid. Hopefully I’ll be less likely to forget or just dismiss these hurting lives from my mind . I pray that God will use this book to awaken many people and that they would remember to pray and be warriors for both the unborn and the broken lives that result from every facet of abortion.
And what a blessing to be reminded that despite any of our mistakes–no matter how awful they may be–and despite our brokenness, we have hope in God!
🎵 There is peace in Christ
When we learn of Him
Feel the love He felt for us
When He bore our sins
Listen to His words
Let them come alive
If we know Him as He is
There is peace in Christ
He gives us hope
When hope is gone
He give us strength
When we can’t go on
He give us shelter
In the storms of life
When there’s no peace on Earth
There is peace in Christ 🎵
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
