In her third novel, Ellen Gable weaves a suspense-filled pro-life story. "Stealing Jenny" focuses on Jenny Callahan, looking forward to the delivery of her sixth child after a difficult pregnancy complicated by placenta previa. Jenny must have a c-section or else both she and the baby will most likely die.
Her mentally unstable infertile neighbor has been eying Jenny with great envy and interest. That baby should be hers! She hatches a sinister plot to kidnap Jenny and steal her unborn child. Will the police find Jenny in time? What will happen to her husband and family left behind? The second half of this book is particularly gripping. You won't want to put it down.
Ellen Gable is an NFP instructor and staunchly pro-life. She frequently writes non-fiction focusing on these topics. Her fiction is one more vehicle to get that message out to a larger audience. "Stealing Jenny" is an enjoyable story with a solid Catholic message. It is a worthy addition to the Catholic Fiction genre.
