An unplanned pregnancy can be stressful, complex and a difficult situation at any age. Though what if you are a teenager, too young to understand that no matter what choice you decide upon you truly are at the cross-roads to your future life.
Every woman’s experience of an unplanned pregnancy is unique, as is the time that she lives in.
In her third book, Karen Chaston takes us on a journey into the lives and times of four teenage girls living in the late 60’s early ‘70s all who choose a different solution for their unplanned pregnancy: marriage, abortion, motherhood and adoption.
Ironically, these four choices form the anagram, M.A.M.A.
Each girl tells her story, sharing her reasons for choosing as she did. Though most importantly the wiser woman that she is now, will revisit her teenage self and give her advice on living with the consequences of the decision.
Maybe even suggesting that she may like to rethink her initial choice!!
The 21st century social attitudes may be very different, though the intention is to assist any woman, today who may be pondering over their decision in relation to their unplanned pregnancy.
