Author Bio

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.

My Review

5 Stars

It is 2026 and abortion has become a crime. Three women find themselves being punished by this new law. Kate was the victim of a rape and became pregnant and has an abortion. Grace has a baby that has a facial deformity and ends up with a miscarriage that is deemed an abortion. Then there is Cindee who is abused, pregnant, and kicked out on her own. All three are being charged but Kate is an attorney and is determined to help fight the law that is punishing women.

With the presidential election coming up and everyone’s heated opinions on abortion right now I though this was an interesting take on the topic. I truly believe that there are no right or wrong answers for abortions. There are always grey areas like the ones discussed in Unborn. My heart does go out to all three women and everything they face.

This was a good look at the possibilities of current issues in our world. Nothing is completely black and white, there are many grey areas that dance around these issues. I like how Unborn points out things that are not commonly brought up when we talk about abortion.

Rachel McLean is a great author that pulled me into this story. I love how it was written and it has left me wanting to read more from her. This might not be your normal read but I recommend checking out this book. I think you will enjoy it.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

I would like to thank Rachel’s Random Resources for the opportunity to read and share this book.
