Katies Choice by Tracey Langford
Katie’s Choice is a story about a high school student who becomes pregnant. She meets with a nurse in an abortion clinic and speaks to a counselor at a pregnancy resource center. Encouraged in that direction by her single mother, she decides to get an abortion, believing it is her best choice. As Katie attempts to move on with her life, thou
gh, her past continues to haunt her.
She thought she was choosing freedom and a future; but then shame and regret haunt her and keep her inner life a closed book even to the man who falls in love with her. Truth pursues Katie, though, until her defenses finally crumble.
This moving tale of redemption chronicles an emotional journey out of self-loathing and spiritual denial into hope and life-changing love.
First-time novelist Tracey Langford was strongly encouraged to “reduce” her pregnancy. She declined, and now is the proud homeschooling mother of 15-year-old quadruplets. As part of her research, Tracey sat in mock interviews with counselors at pregnancy centers, role-playing the part of a troubled pregnant girl.
Tracey Langford lives with her husband, Jon, and their four children in Alabama. Their children are quadruplets – two boys and two girls – and homeschooling them is keeping Tracey busy these days. Ideas for future novels are brewing, though. In the future she will no doubt tackle other “dark” subjects with engrossing, hope-filled fiction.
Tracey has been a high school English teacher and a youth worker.
