This is the story of three women who become pregnant in a time when abortion has been made illegal. Each pregnancy is different, each woman is different, and each situation is different. Unborn takes us through each women's journey to see what really happened and how they will pay for their crimes.
First of all, wow... just wow. This book is incredible. The writing is amazing. The story is unforgettable as it pulls at your heart strings and forces your mind to think what if. In this timeline McLean has created, abortion is illegal. There is never a reason where it is tolerated or accepted. Any woman who is caught having an abortion, or even trying, is sent to prison where their eggs are harvested and given to those who are having fertility trouble. Women are not even allowed to seek fertility treatment without being accompanied by a man. In this world, it can be beyond scary just to be a woman.
While this book is just a made up world, it is truly terrifying. The emotions McLean is able to evoke through her amazing writing are just wow. I really don't know how else to describe this book. It's dark and most definitely not for everyone, but it's crazy good.
While the subject matter will be an issue for some, Unborn is dark, wonderful and will truly get you thinking. I will absolutely be reading more of this author in the future.
My name's Rachel McLean and I write thrillers that make you think.
What does that mean?
In short, I want my stories to make your pulse race and your brain tick.
Do you often get through a thriller at breakneck pace but are left with little sense of what the book was really about? Do you sometimes read literary fiction but just wish something would damn well happen?
My books aim to fill that gap.
