Description



Book Synopsis



Following her bestselling debut novel Come Away with Me, Karma Brown returns with an unforgettable story that explores the intricate dynamics of friendship and parenthood

Hannah and Kate became friends in the fifth grade, when Hannah hit a boy for looking up Kate's skirt with a mirror. While they've been close as sisters ever since, Hannah can't help but feel envious of the little family Kate and her husband, David, have created--complete with two perfect little girls.

She and Ben have been trying for years to have a baby, so when they receive the news that she will likely never get pregnant, Hannah's heartbreak is overwhelming. But just as they begin to tentatively explore the other options, it's Kate's turn to do the rescuing. Not only does she offer to be Hannah's surrogate, but Kate is willing to use her own eggs to do so.

Full of renewed hope, excitement and gratitude, these two families embark on an incredible journey toward parenthood...until a devastating tragedy puts everything these women have worked toward at risk of falling apart. Poignant and refreshingly honest, The Choices We Make is a powerful tale of an incredible friendship and the risks we take to make our dreams come true.



Review Quotes



We adored Come Away with Me and are ready for more of Brown's powerful, heartfelt prose. She's the female Nicholas Sparks.-Redbook

Brown delivers an emotional punch in The Choices We Make. This is a good, old-fashioned tear-jerker of a book. -The Toronto Star

The Choices We Make presents gut-wrenching questions about friendship and loyalty, when a parent's responsibility starts, and how to make life and death decisions that mean choosing between people we love.... The Choices We Make should appeal to readers who relish Nicholas Sparks' sentimental stories combined with the kind of weighty issues often raised by Jodi Picoult.-New York Journal of Books

An involving story suffused with emotion but grounded in reality. Have tissues at hand for this one.-Booklist

A compelling premise with a plot that intensifies satisfyingly in the second half, this book is a good bet for readers who don't shy away from difficult moral questions. -Kirkus Reviews

Brown's second novel is as emotionally charged as her first. The author has an amazing ability to inject humanity into her characters so that they feel like real people struggling and rejoicing. Be prepared to shed a few tears when you travel this road alongside these people.-RT Book Reviews, 4 stars

I was already emotionally invested in this beautifully written story of love and loss when an unexpected turn of events knocked the wind right out of me. Heart-wrenching yet hopeful, Come Away with Me had me smiling through my tears.
-Tracey Garvis Graves, New York Times bestselling author of On the Island

One woman's journey through grief becomes the journey of a lifetime in Karma Brown's adventurous, heartbreaking yet ultimately hopeful novel. This emotional love story will stick with you long after you've turned the final page.
-Colleen Oakley, author of Before I Go on Come Away with Me

Come Away with Me tells the heartbreaking yet hopeful tale of a life lost and a life reclaimed. Fans of Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat Pray Love will flock to this novel.... Karma Brown is a talented new voice in women's fiction.
-Lori Nelson Spielman, author of The Life List

Karma Brown has written a book that will make you feel like you've traveled the world without leaving your seat. Come Away with Me is full of lush locations, memorable characters, and a turn of events that is nothing short of jaw-dropping. Brown's work is as smart as it is effortless to read.
-Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of Forever, Interrupted and After I Do
