"Red Like Crimson" by Janice Thompson

About this book:

  “When Adrianne found out she was pregnant eight years ago, she made the decision to leave Bible school and raise her child alone. Staying would have prevented her boyfriend from fulfilling his God-appointed mission in life. But every day since, she has regretted her decision. Chris-rejected, confused, and heartbroken-finished school and soon found himself in Nicaragua, loving life as a missionary. But the void left by Adrianne's unexplained departure remains. When Chris returns to the States for a friend's wedding, is his unexpected meeting with Adrianne a coincidence or a "God incidence?" Can they put aside the past and embrace a future together as a family?”

My personal Rating-
I’ve read quite a few plots where the girlfriend-gets-pregnant-but-the-boyfriend-doesn’t-know-until-much-later plots. As a general rule, I’ve stayed away from them because they all have unneeded Sexual Content in them. But, this book is by Janice Thompson. Y’all should know by now she’s a very favorite author of mine. So, I knew I wanted to read this book..even though I was a teeny, tiny worried…which I shouldn’t have been at all! It was all so very clean and the faiths were incredible! And also, another really neat thing about this small book is that it’s FREE on Kindle right now! :D

See y’all on Wednesday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
