There is a lot of me in this story – if you’ve followed along on some of my #steenatravels the past three years you’ll recognize some of my favorite passions – specifically travel. There are a few other things in the story that will be fun to read…keep on the lookout the next few months for more details!


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?

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for this book to come out! I always thought Finding Emma would be my favorite story but Saving Abby…this story has stolen my heart in more ways than one and I have a feeling you’ll feel the same way once you’ve read it!

What do you think…like the cover?
