One young woman. Two very different roads. The choice will change everything.

Even as a pregnant, unwed teen in 1974, Sandy Lincoln wanted to do the right thing. But when an ageless woman approached her in a convenience store with a mysterious prophecy and a warning, doing the right thing became even more unclear. She made the best choice she could . . . and has lived with the consequences.

More than thirty years later, a pregnant teen has come into her life, and Sandy’s long-ago decision has come back to haunt her. The stakes rise quickly, leaving Sandy with split seconds to choose once more. But will her choice decision bring life . . . or death?


Robert Whitlow is the best-selling author of legal novels set in the South and winner of the prestigious Christy Award for Contemporary Fiction. A Furman University graduate, Whitlow received his J.D. with honors from the University of Georgia School of Law where he served on the staff of the Georgia Law Review. A practicing attorney, Whitlow and his wife, Kathy, have four children. They make their home in North Carolina.

The Choice is essentially two stories in one: the story of Sandy's journey as an unwed pregnant teenager, and the contemporary tale of her current life as a teacher and the pregnant teen she reaches out to help. Robert Whitlow has crafted a story with characters that jump off the page--including some that I wished would go jump in the (proverbial) lake! The emotions, relational struggles, and family conflicts are palpable and realistically portray the heartache that accompanies an unwed teen pregnancy. Whitlow expertly weaves together the stories separated by decades and demonstrates how decisions have ripple effects for years to come. While many aspects of the novel could lead to a no-win, heartbreaking ending, the message of faith, forgiveness, and God's sovereignty is clearly evident. This would be a good book for a teen discussion group.
