The Encounter by Steven Arterburn

All I can say is wow! I have read a couple of Mr. Arterburns novels but nothing prepared me for the powerful message of this book.

It is the story of a young woman, left heart broken, scorned and pregnant all alone in the world. She loved her son dearly but made the heart wrenching choice to leave him. Her son was adopted and grew up with wonderful parents but lived his life with the pain of wondering why his mother left him. His pastor talked him into returning to Alaska to search for his mother and for healing.

I was spellbound by the first page. I will be sending this to my stranged step daughter and I am sure that God dropped this book into my lap for a reason. I can't recommend this book enough!

I received this book free of charge in exchange for a review from Booksneeze. I was in no way required to give a good review!
