What happens when a man whose undying love for the only woman ever to return his affections discovers the one thing that would truly make her happy is the very thing he is reluctant to give? In the book 'Sacrifice the One' by Monica P. Carter, Robert Armstrong, a college professor, is confronted with that very question; when the love of his life Rose dies shortly after giving birth to the sustenance of her completion. Robert and Rose had tried unsuccessfully to become pregnant and carry full term with no success. Each attempt was not without risk. For Robert, there was no decision to be made; Rose was all he needed to sustain his life. But for Rose, life would never be complete without the sound of a child¿s crying or laughing resounding in their home. There was nothing Robert wouldn¿t do for his Rose. For Rose, there was nothing she wouldn¿t give for the sake of fulfilling her longing for motherhood; even if it meant death. They were as close as any husband and wife could be and there were no secrets between them. Or, were there? In the wake of Rose¿s death, a new chapter of life emerges: Rosetta Love or, Seta as she was later christened. Her life would symbolize the beginning and the end of many things destined to unfold. Rose had a secret she never intended to share with Robert but all things reveal themselves in time. A voice from Robert¿s past would reach out to him from beyond the grave, dealing him a devastating blow. In that instant, Robert¿s obsessive love of the only living memory left of his beloved Rose, would soon become the object of his hatred and contempt. In this spellbinding book of love, loss, rejection, and salvation, the characters take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions all demonstrating the various sacrifices surrounding a single soul who would never fully know the impact she made on many lives. 'Sacrifice the One' provides its readers with great suspense and intrigue; revealing shocking family secrets. This book not only offers great entertainment, it also affords enlightenment of the consequences secrets can bring as well as the overwhelming sense of loss one can self-inflict due to misguided hatred. --Collier Lunn, founder of NaMari Publishing, Flavah ReviewersWas this review helpful?
