I was determined to protect this baby, and I was angry at everyone that wanted to harm it. I didn't want it and prayed for a miscarriage, but I wasn't going to kill it. However, the first time I felt the baby move, I loved the child within me. My prayer changed simply to, 'O God, help us.' When Tamara Lee becomes pregnant after being raped by her ex-boyfriend, she feels abandoned and lost. Some people encourage her to have an abortion, and others refuse to believe it was rape. In the face of judgment and heartbreak, Tamara becomes angry and rebellious. She quickly learns that this attitude will not help her handle the pressures of life. Only by turning to God can she find the grace, mercy, and forgiveness that she longs to receive. Throughout Tamara's life she meets trial after trial with faith in God's guidance. As she searches for a lifelong romantic relationship and a strong church community, she learns that only by listening for God's voice can she hope to make the right decisions. Like a diamond in the rough, her life is a perfect example of how God creates Peculiar Treasures out of difficult lives.
