A Heartbeat in Danger by Dan Morrow is an open narrative on abortion. Stacy Kent was a successful high school student from a broken home. A cheerleader and a good student, Stacy was in love with Tucker who loved her just as much. One night of passion left Stacy pregnant, and another left Tucker dead. Alone, scared, and desperate, Stacy thought the best course of action for her would be to terminate the pregnancy. She believed she wasn’t ready to be a mother; however, things changed when she met a strange being in a dream. It turned out that the stranger was there for a reason and showed Stacy the life that the unborn child would lead if she changed her decision. Now that Stacy has seen the life her child would live, would she change her mind, or would she shrink from the responsibility, believing she would repeat her mother’s mistakes?

A Heartbeat in Danger was a beautiful story of courage, sadness, and a deep need for a second chance. I loved how author Dan Morrow doesn’t take sides but just shares a narrative that can be taken either way. The story almost read like a fable; a moral story told to young people so that they would make good decisions in the future. Stacy’s character was relatable. Her grief was believable. I could imagine fearful young girls facing a similar reality and being unaware of the consequences. The pace was fast, and action was introduced early on. Dan Morrow created a plausible scenario, giving Stacy a lot of opportunities to grow and become a strong woman who could make a decision she would be proud of. He showed both the good and bad sides of an unwanted pregnancy, allowed readers to come to their conclusions, and I liked that a lot. I would highly recommend this novel to anyone who needs guidance because all they have to do is ask.
