Overview

Becky Taylor, a young woman burdened by great expectations, is lying on a cold recovery table in an abortion clinic when she hears a man's voice, then gunshots. She holds her breath and lies perfectly still behind the curtain. When the gunman is finished, Becky is the only one left alive in the clinic. This act brings together two strangers who both seek answers to life's most wrenching questions, mainly: Are God's love and mercy big enough for every sin? The answer transforms multiple lives.

Library Journal
Becky Taylor succumbs to her parents' decision that she have an abortion, believing that she has no other choice. Then, while waiting in a small room for her mother to pick her up after the procedure, she hears screams and gunfire. Within minutes, Becky is the only living soul left in the clinic. Traumatized by the abortion and the shooting, Becky lashes out at friends and family in an increasingly suicidal manner until, in desperation, her father contacts Maggie Singer, director of Community Life Center, a pro-life organization with a program to help women who have had abortions let go of their grief and move on with their lives. Maggie should know; a botched abortion destroyed her chances for children in the future. Bambola (Refiner's Fire) tackles the question of God's forgiveness of sin in any situation, but not his acceptance, by offering different viewpoints on abortion but emphasizing a pro-life stance. Outstanding in its depiction of a particular stance, this book belongs in all well-rounded collections. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
