Vale has a real talent for drawing characters one wants to get to know, and for understanding the emotional impact of the events that shape our lives. A compelling novel that delicately yet realistically portrays the impact of adoption on all the lives it touches.
Melanie's husband shocks her when he walks out after sixteen years of marriage, leaving her to care for their three children. When Sam re-enters Melanie's life, will they be able to make it through the hardship and tragedy to build their lives anew? "Choices" by Kate Vale is a heartwarming and honest look at modern love and relationships.
Vale’s writing captures germane issues that women face in today’s world: being torn about decisions made between life for oneself and the caring for a beloved elder who has dementia, the strife of feeling the need to be in at least three places at one time, the far reaching effects of the Middle East Conflict, along with the emotional bonds of family and friends, and the myriad of tugs that women must face as they navigate modern life’s complexities. If you want to get to know characters who embrace contemporary challenges with integrity and passion, then look no further than Kate Vale’s novels for a book about love and loss, friendship and family ties, and finding happiness.
