Description


Suffering complications after obtaining an illegal abortion, a young mother of three nearly loses her life and does lose her family. Saving Jane Doe is the story of her quest to restore her relationship with her children. It is told by Dr. Cara Land, the young doctor who meets her while a medical student and becomes her lifelong friend. When Jane Doe is homeless, penniless, alone, and jobless, Cara helps her land a job working as a housekeeper for a wise and wealthy, elderly widower, Cara's Uncle Henry. Because of her circumstances following the abortion, Jane finds herself with unique opportunities to assist each of her children when they face their own difficult choices, but honesty and forgiveness are needed before she can help. It takes years for her to overcome her shame and to be honest with her children about why she suddenly left and did not return home. Two of the three children feel abandoned and unloved and have difficulty forgiving her. Only Grace, the youngest daughter and least flawed character, never withdraws in anger, but in her innocence she still suffers. After reading Saving Jane Doe you will want a doctor and friend like Cara Land. You will wish you had the wise counsel of Uncle Henry. You will see that one mistake need not define your life. Finally, you will see that there is power in love and forgiveness.
