The Choices We Make - Karma Brown

Hannah is delighted when her best friend Kate offers to be a surrogate mother, since Hannah is unable to get pregnant herself. However, when tragedy strikes and Kate ends up in hospital, will she be able to do what's best even if it means she will have to give up her biggest wish?


Do not go into this book thinking it to be something light. Because I found it had me contemplating on some serious issues indeed. Especially after Kate's admission to the hospital 'the right thing' to do becomes very blurry. While it's understandable that Hannah would push for prolonging the pregnancy to increase the chances of the babies survival, I couldn't help myself but thinking her selfish and pushing at times. It all goes to show the complexity of the situation.


The writing was not bad, but not very memorable either. The story was mainly told from alternating POVs of Hannah and Kate, which isn't really a construction I like. I did like the story though, but at times it was a bit too much drama for my liking. I would however try another book by Karma Brown.
