Publisher's Summary

All children's book illustrator Claire Turner ever wanted was to be a mother. After six years of trying to conceive, she and her husband, Josh, have finally accepted that she will never be pregnant with a child of their own.

Yet once they give up hope, the couple gets the miracle they've been waiting for. For the first few months of her pregnancy, Claire and Josh are living on cloud nine. But when she begins to experience debilitating headaches, blurred vision, and even fainting spells, the soon-to-be mother goes to the doctor and receives a terrifying diagnosis. Since any treatment could put their unborn baby's life at risk, the Turners must carefully weigh their limited options. And as her symptoms worsen, Claire will have to make an impossible decision: Save her own life, or save her child's?

USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Steena Holmes brings us an unforgettable story of one woman's courage and love.

    Story
    "This book was outstanding, couldn't stop listening"
    What made the experience of listening to Saving Abby the most enjoyable?

    The fact her husband stood by her and her Dr. then she prepared a book for the baby after she felt she wouldn't be there for the baby herself.


    What other book might you compare Saving Abby to and why?

    I've never read a book so enjoyable with so much detail.


    What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

    She went into detail about everything, the tumor, headaches, how to relax, how the town felt about her & her husband.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it was


    Any additional comments?

    It brought tears to my eyes that Clare died in childbirth. But the relationship between the daughter and father is going to be so sweet.

    "Dull"

    I kept waiting for something exciting or dramatic to happen. I found this book dull and predictable.
