Review: The Choices We Make
Hannah and Kate have been best friends since elementary school. Both are happily married. Kate and her husband have two adorable girls while Hannah and her husband struggle with infertility. In the ultimate act of friendship, Kate offers to be a surrogate for Hannah and Ben. None of them can imagine how accepting Kate’s generous offer will change all of their lives forever.
I can’t say too much more about the plot of The Choices We Make by Karma Brown without spoiling things but I can say I was hooked on this book from the very start. The point of view alternates between the two friends and Brown writes so well I could feel Hannah and Ben’s pain and I hurt along with them, even though I’ve never struggled with the same issues. I also felt Kate’s love when she offered to help her friends achieve their goal.
Hannah and Kate and their struggles felt very real to me so I know this book will resonate with so many readers. It made me cry several times and made me smile as well. It gave me a lot to think about so I think it would make an excellent book club selection.
The audio version of The Choices We Make is narrated by Cassandra Campbell and Jorjeana Marie and they both did an outstanding job. Having the two narrators made it easy to keep track of the characters and enhanced the story. I’ve already recommended the audio version of this book to several friends. You don’t want to miss The Choices We Make!
