I received a copy of LETHAL HARVEST by William R. Cutrer and Sandra L. Glahn from Kregel in exchange for an honest review. This isn’t the type of story I normally read. I’m more into historical fiction and fantasy. However, I love to expand my reading tastes and dive into something different. I am heartily glad that I took a chance on LETHAL HARVEST.
As I read, I knew this was a book I would pass on to my dad. IVF, DNA, cloning, fertilization, and stem cell research? Sign him up! I wasn’t too familiar with the topics – other than hearing snippets of conversation from family and friends – so I was interested to see how the plot unfurled. At times I was a little overwhelmed, but I think that’s because I’m not too hip on these topics.
The book is about a Mexican couple who use a clinic’s services to conceive twins. The husband is upset because the girls don’t look like him, so he sues the clinic. That’s it in a nutshell. However, it isn’t quite so cut and dry. It is a very vast and edge-of-your-seat novel.
There is a Christian theme to the story that I found refreshing. Overall, I recommend this book to those interested in these topics, and for anyone looking for a fresh read outside of his or her usual genre.
