It was an unlikely match—Jewish man and Gentile woman. But their meeting ignited an incendiary love that transcended all barriers of faith, social background, and societal norms. Their life together, however, would be brief. They would be living and loving on borrowed time. . . .

This book is much more than the extraordinary true story of the love of a man for a woman. It is the moving account of a father’s unconditional love for his beloved son and the passionate heart-cry of God for His broken Bride.
Yet, stalking the bliss and beauty of these relationships is an intruder bent on destruction. ISIS and its associated evils are not the only threats to life, love, and civilization as we know it. The culture of death has metastasized to the very institutions that have vowed to preserve and protect life. The Enemy of our souls often comes in disguise. Sometimes as an angel of light . . . or even as an angel of mercy!

This is also an urgent warning to those who have “eyes to see and ears to hear” what evil may lurk in the most unexpected places—even within agencies and institutions pledged to bring healing and hope. By no means is this book intended to discredit the noble work of most hospitals and caregiving agencies. In a growing number of cases, however, end-of-life procedures—without regard for a patient’s stated wishes—hasten death before its time. It is called “stealth euthanasia”—a reality that “Jacob” and “Rachel” would come to understand all too well.

In her landmark book, Lucy Karen Clay highlights the grim scenario for too many of our most vulnerable—among them, those weakened by even well-intentioned caregivers. As a champion for these who have no voice, she provides rich resources for defending one’s Choice To LIVE!May her journey with “Jacob” alert readers to take the necessary legal—and spiritual—measures to ensure that every love story—and every life—has a happy ending.
