Book Review – Unborn by Rachel McLean @rachelmcwrites @rararesources #BookReview #BlogTour #dystopian

Many thanks to Rachel and Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on this Blog Tour.

A novel set in time when the laws had become archaic, where women’s rights were abolished and pro life rule made abortion illegal.

And caught in the headlights were 3 women. Grace who had a natural miscarriage but was arrested as the state deemed it to be an abortion. Kate was a hotshot lawyer who did ungergo medical abortion. And Cindee was pregnant but wanted an abortion. All three found themselves in prison for killing or trying to kill a life.

My fourth book by Rachel McLean, this was quite a valid plot line, keeping in line with the environment which was under argument a time earlier. Only a woman can judge if she is fit to be a mother. Period. My belief. So I found the book horrifying where women seemed to have hardly any rights.

The atmosphere was initially kept so dark that I was sure there was no light in that tunnel ever. I kept wondering what happened to those human rights organization. My emotions were rankled so much so that I wanted to call up people and demand a change in the situation.

Set in America in 2026, it was quite a dystopian world in favor of men everywhere. People even fired women from work or evicted them from home based on morals. Ugghhh!! The most unmoralistic of species on this earth dared to judge us women!! How dared they!! I told ya, this book rattled all my chains, and I could barely maintain my sanity.

Then came the beacon of light as Kate who fought for Grace and another prisoner who helped Cindee and I could breathe a little easier knowing the women were survivors and they could very well find loopholes and kick the men’s asses. Believe me, Rachel had written such a thought provoking and edging in passions story that many times I had to take deep breaths just to bring my rage under control.

It was one of a kind book, I would say!!

I received a free ARC from Rachel and the author, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

She killed her unborn child. The punishment will fit the crime.

America, 2026.
Feminism has been defeated.
Equality is a memory.
And abortion has been criminalized.

Three women find themselves on the wrong side of the law. Kate, carrying the child of a sexual predator. Grace, whose baby will be born with a fatal deformity. And Cindee: abused, abandoned and pregnant.

Their punishment will fit their crime.

Can these three very different women come together to fight an oppressive system and win their freedom?

Find out by reading Unborn, a chilling dystopia combined with a gripping legal thriller.

    1. Yesha, I once had two post-operative patients, one had just aborted, other was in for infertility treatment. Both were my patients. The fertility treatment patient asked – why couldn’t she have given me her baby? And I had no words except tears. But as a doc, can’t show emotions. I just had to say – irony of life
