30 Day Photo Challenge, Day 28 ~ Books

I am really enjoying the first book in a new fiction trilogy by Dr. Dobson and Kurt Bruner:  Fatherless, Childless, and Godless.  The first book takes place 30 years in the future, when America's population growth has declined to the point where it is nearly impossible for those working to financially support those who are not.  This has created a cultural climate in which "pre-screening" for healthy pregnancies is routine (basically selective abortion), and where suicide has been institutionalized and couched in terms of compassion and dignity.  The premise is actually rather depressing, yet I am finding this first book to be a fascinating and even hopeful glimpse into a possible future for our country if we continue down the path we are currently on.  The characters are well developed and are interwoven with each other in some really unique ways.  I can't wait to finish this first book so I can move on to the second!
