What options does a Christian woman have after she’s brutally assaulted by a stranger...and becomes pregnant? That’s the heartrending situation Claire Holland faces. Happily married and the mother of two when she is attacked, Claire begins an incredible journey on the painful pathway to trusting God “in all things.”
When Claire’s husband, Dan, confesses he can’t be a father to the expected child, Claire’s decision to put the baby up for adoption creates a sense of tremendous loss for Claire. Later, unexpected circumstances turn this seeming loss into victory.
This wonderful first novel isn’t a love story....but a life story, presenting the twin themes trusting God in tragic circumstances and reaping the rewards that eventually come with sacrificial loving.

Â"The idea for Why the Sky is Blue came from a desire to deepen my compassion for women in crisis pregnancies. The fact that all life is precious is as much true of the woman who faces an unplanned pregnancy as it is for her unborn child. I wanted to imagine what it would be like for someone like me to be in that kind of situation; challenged with trusting God in the midst of desperate circumstances. I wanted to suppose that something breathtakingly wonderful could result from choosing to trust.Â"About the Author:
