Presence of My Enemies: A Great New Prolife Novel by Christopher Gladu

From the Margaret Sanger Blog:

A week or so ago while visiting, we stumbled upon a great new prolife novel by Christopher Gladu.  The book is entitled Presence of My Enemies .

Many Catholic high school summer reading lists these days are filled with lousy, vulgar books.  What a pleasant alternative this book is.  We would encourage one of our great national prolife organizations ( HLI  , Priests for Life , ALL , National Right to Life  ) to take the lead next year in contacting every Catholic high school in the country and request that some well-written prolife works like Presence of My Enemies be added to summer reading lists.  And maybe add our all time favorite The Hand of God by Bernard Nathanson as well.   Imagine the impact it could have!

We would love to review this tremendous book in full, but for now, this brief summary from a noted prolife leader will have to do:

Author Christopher Gladu's Presence of My Enemies is a brilliant, sobering story of one young woman's struggle with an unexpected pregnancy. Gladu's masterful writing style intertwines the characters' lives in both an intriguing and clever design that keeps the reader riveted through each chapter. A must-read book that is powerful, emotional and a gripping thriller!  Debi Vinnedge, Executive Director Children of God for Life

We have long advocated spreading the Gospel of Life in as many artistic ways as possible.  Gladu's amazing novel is certainly deserving of a wholehearted embrace from all in the prolife community.  Go buy this book.
