An Accidental Life, Pamela Binnings Ewen cover
In a 1982 New Orleans courtroom the best kept secret in the world is about to unravel, and a young couple's jet set lives are about to change. Senior district attorney Peter Jacobs is facing the trial of a lifetime, a passionate, spiritual battle against an evil with far reaching consequences. His beloved wife Rebecca, a glamorous and driven partner at a major law firm, suddenly finds her life spun out of control and her new faith tested while facing a once in a lifetime choice.

After practicing law for many in Houston, Texas, Pamela Binnings Ewen turned to writing. She lives in Mandeville, Louisiana near New Orleans.

I had some trouble with this book and I will start with those so I can leave you with the good. I did not really like Rebecca's part of the book. I felt she gave in to certain circumstances to easy when just a few pages before she was having a more tough attitude. Though I am in no position to judge what emotions like that do to you I would have expected a bit more of a struggle from a woman who had to fight for her position as she did.
The trial on the other hand was really really well done and I loved reading those chapters even though the subject was not so pretty. I never considered the circumstances described in this book and I do feel that it helps bringing something under attention. It was not always easy to read due to the circumstances but it did keep me reading because I really wanted to know the outcome of the trial.
I do have to give a warning that this book is not really for people with a strong feelings about abortion. This book gives you details you might not want to be aware of on the procedure.
