Francine Rivers takes this difficult subject on like a champ, and while some may say that this is not her best novel, I have always appreciated the story concept. Even in her early novels, it was clear that Rivers had God-given talent. The Atonement Child covers subjects such as abortion, rape, Christianity, the sanctity of human life, tragedy, generational sin, marriage, parent-child relationships, sickness, selfishness, selflessness, and unconditional love. The opening sequence sets a nostalgic scene, featuring a young Christian college student who is finishing her night shift and heading back to her dorm.

I love anything by Francine Rivers, but this book is probably one of my favorites of hers. Just the shame and disappointment that Dinah is forced to go through and the struggle to decide what to do with her child and the choices she makes to give her baby the best chance in life is truly redemptive and wonderful. Aurelia This was an amazing book about a young girl who had life planned out; everything was going perfect for her until that one fateful night.
Francine Rivers is a wonderful author. I would highly recommend this book. Debra Slaven This book sounds awesome and I want to know if I can get a copy to upload to my Ipad to read. It reminds me so much of another author who I can not remember her name but here is a synopsis of her book: I read and met a similar author, she had lost the use of her left hand I believe through an accident as a child but she could play the piano so wonderfully.
She too while happily married was raped by a black man she was a pure white girl , she already had children from her current hubby and they decided to keep the baby God had blessed her with a beautiful Negro girl who loves the Lord with all her might and soul I could not stop crying at this Christian convention she was speaking at. Keri This is my second favorite book by Mrs Rivers. LOVE the story line. She makes you feel like the story is really happening and you have a front row view.
Without revealing spoilers I was very disapointed with an ending I felt was rushed and forced and there were certain plot points that I found completely unrealistic. I hate to say it because I love her other works but this one fell short. Rebecca This is probably one of my favorites books that I have read! There needs to be more books on this topic. I hope to be able to use this as a resource as well. Thanks for writing Mrs.
Shae This book is riveting and hard to put down. The struggle Dynah endures is heartrending and the decisions she is forced to make tug at the heart strings. So regarding that, I would give this book 4 Stars.
