I wasn’t sure what to expect from “Hush Little Baby” when I first began to read it. The cover was much different from those on books I am accustomed to reading and I was unfamiliar with the author. But I had agreed to review it and dove right in. To my delight, the story grabbed my attention and held my interest throughout.
“Hush Little Baby” is a dramatic suspense that revolves around possible illegal activities in an abortion clinic where Amber Blake has taken a position as counselor in order to investigate. To Amber’s surprise, the doctor in charge of the clinic takes a romantic interest in her despite the fact that she is a little person and he is of normal size. In order to gain more information, Amber encourages his interest while still spending time with her estranged husband who would like to reconcile.
A convoluted tale filled with suspense, drama, and danger, “Hush Little Baby” could come out of today’s headlines. In fact, breaking news about Planned Parenthood is eerily similar to events in this book.
I am glad I took a chance and read “Hush Little Baby”. It is a well-written, faith-based story that addresses important current issues.
