Review by Norma:  The Choices We Make by Karma Brown

The Choices We MakeThe Choices We Make by Karma Brown

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Date read:  April 23 – May 25, 2017

Update: I was finally able to finish this absolutely heartbreaking novel!

THE CHOICES WE MAKE by KARMA BROWN was recommended to me by a few of my close Goodreads friends after finishing IN THIS MOMENT and I was warned to have a box of Kleenex handy as it was going to be a sad and emotional read.  Well I needed that box of Kleenex!

I can usually hold back my emotions fairly well while reading a book but I wasn’t able to control my tears with this one. I was just hoping hubby wouldn’t wake up and ask me why I was crying. This was such a good book!

THE CHOICES WE MAKE by KARMA BROWN is an unforgettable and powerful story about love, friendship, loss, motherhood, and how grief can ultimately affect the choices we make.

KARMA BROWN delivers a touching and heart-wrenching story here that is told through Hannah and Kate’s perspective who have been best friends since fifth grade and have been there for each other ever since. Hannah is unable to get pregnant and when she and her husband have lost all hope, Kate offers them an alternative option.

I really liked all the characters and their relationships and I really felt like I was feeling their pain, hopelessness, grief, and their excitement, happiness, and gratefulness. I also found it to be an honest and believable portrayal of how one might react or behave if put in a similar situation, that of Hannah’s and/or Kate’s.

To sum it all up it was an emotional, steady-paced, and a quick read with a satisfying ending. Would recommend!!

DNF…….because I got bumped on Overdrive before I could!
I am so bummed! I did not finish this book before I was locked out of reading it late last night on Overdrive! I guess I shouldn’t have waited for the last day to read this! Now I have to wait until the book comes available to me again!
