About SAVING ABBY A children’s book illustrator, all Claire Turner ever wanted was to be a mother. After years of heartbreak—following her unexpected teenage pregnancy and giving her baby up for adoption—Claire is ready to have another child with her loving husband Josh. But after six years of trying to conceive, Claire and Josh have finally accepted that she will never be pregnant with a child of their own. Yet once they give up hope, the couple gets the miracle they’ve been waiting for. For the first few months of her pregnancy, Claire and Josh are living on cloud nine. But when she begins to experience debilitating headaches, blurred vision, and even fainting spells, the soon-to-be mother goes to the doctor and receives a terrifying diagnosis. Since any treatment could put their unborn baby’s life at risk, the Turners must carefully weigh their limited options. And as her symptoms worsen, Claire will have to make an impossible decision: Save her own life, or save her child’s?

I adored Saving Abby...it was emotional, heartfelt, honest and raw. Holmes has a way to write characters that touch the readers heart. She grabs the reader and causes them to ignore everything else until the reader turns the last page and sets the book down. Readers will be left feeling changed, moved....different than they were before they started Saving Abby It is more than just reading a book...it is an experience you engage in. I think Holmes keeps getting better with every book she writes. I need more people to hurry and read this book so we can discuss it. This book is so very good and one that would make a great book club pick.
