What if there was a solution to abortion? What if pro-life and pro-choice could join forces to see the war over the issue end? Is it possible? Daphne Barrie is pregnant. Unless she aborts, she will die. Charlene McTaggart cant conceive and badly wants a child. Dr. Jason Steadman goes against those who would do all they can to stop a unique procedure from being performed. A procedure that will save an embryo, prevent a death and give an infertile woman a chance at motherhood. Abortion. The mere mention of the word raises the hackles of most people on one side of the debate or the other. Author Donna Dawson writes a provocative novel, which opens the door to the possibility of ending a decades old conflict. Wrapped in a suspense plot, she offers readers a surprising response to early term abortion while giving both pro-choice and pro-life a chance to meet on common ground. Is it possible that Rescued has the potential to change societys direction and bring about a peaceful resolution? Read it and then make up your own mind. --Joel A. Freeman, Ph.D., Author.
Donna Dawson is a creative writing instructor at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario. She and her husband have three grown daughters and live near London with their horses, dog and cats.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An alternative to abortion? This is clearly an “issue” novel, but Donna Dawson is too skilled a writer to let it slide into propaganda. And it’s a look at an alternative to abortion—not an argument for or against abortion itself. Both pro-life and pro-choice readers will find it interesting as long as they’re comfortable with a book where some of the characters talk about their faith. Embryonic micromanipulation has been a reality in livestock for years. Rescued is Donna Dawson’s exploration of what it might mean if it were possible for humans. In places the book is very technical as the doctors try to help the public and their patients (and readers) understand the procedure. It’s also a poignant look at a teen who knows she’ll never deliver a baby and a woman who had lost hope of ever being pregnant. The bond that grows between them is touching, and it strengthens them both. Rescued is an informative and thought-provoking novel. The first part is more human interest: the fight to save Daphne’s life. The second part is more suspenseful: the fight to protect Charlene’s life as the religious extremist increases his pressure. With short chapters and a fast pace, it’s hard to put down. The only negative is that it didn’t have enough copy-editing, and readers who notice these things will at times be jolted out of the story.
