Would you listen to A Mother's Choice again? Why?
Yes! It captured my attention all the way through. Didn't want to stop listening. Didn't want the story to end.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Nadine. She went through so much but survived with her faith intact.
What does Renata Friedman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
I've started to read a second Kristin Noel Fischer book. I'm a fan!

What an emotional, caring, loving, giving read I have read in a long time. I had listened to this a few weeks ago but somehow forgot to post my review. It is a review that will take a lot of thought to show just how powerful it is to the listener. I really do not think words can tell how much this will touch you or the emotions you will go through. The author keeps you guessing as Nadine relives her life all the hardships that her and her best friend go through. It is a very realistic story that will touch you in so many ways. I have to say I was guessing almost until the end as to what she did and what the big secret was.
I loved how Ms. Friedman puts the emotion into this audio really making you feel like you are there with the characters. The character voices are outstanding they seem so real almost like you can reach out and touch them. It is a very emotional and powerful story that the narrator adds so much to. She uses the correct tones, pitch and voice that really fits the characters. I was pulled in from the very first page as she takes you through the past life of Nadine, her husband, their friends and best friends. I had no trouble picturing the scenes as they were happening. I really felt like I was part of the story it was just so real. Her many different character voices were outstanding from her male to her female. You always know who is talking and what they are feeling. There is no background noise, no volume changes nor any repeating of words. It is a very clean, crisp and powerful audio that pulls the listener in taking you back in time to a woman’s life that had so much and lost even more. You can hear the smile or laugh and disappointment, heartache and love in each character. Word cannot say what an outstanding job this narrator has done. It is the first time I have listen to her work and she blew me away.
The author has done an outstanding job keeping the mystery going keeping you guessing to the outcome. I loved the twists and turns, the unanswered questions that drive the reader nuts trying to work it out. There is a lot you won’t understand for a little while because the author isn’t giving to many clues away. She knows how to keep the reader hooked and keeping the story interesting as she spins her web around your heart leaving you in aww to the outcome. She starts off with a little old sweet lady that knows what she wants and has a little sass to go with it. She is taken back in time to her first meeting with the love of her life and all the hardship the go through. Nadine is a very sweet girl but the cards are stack against her and her true love. Much goes on as they are torn apart going in different directions. The one thing that always stands true is her friendship with her best friend. They have always been there for each other through thick and thin even when distance keeps them apart. It isn’t all honey and roses but it isn’t all bad, the author gives you a believable well told story of love, lost, happiness, and the unthinkable until relationships are held on by a thread. You will not be able to guess the outcome until you are almost to the end of the story. By then you are so very hooked with tears in your eyes. This is a very fast pace, thrilling, sad and very emotional read that will touch you to your very soul.
My reaction is wanting to reach in and pull the characters out of the pages more than once. My heart broke for so many at the same time it is such a very cheerful story. It has a powerful message and so unselfish it will break your heart. I know I could never be this unselfish and so giving. I have never read any of this authors work but she had me hook, line and sinker from the first page. I have picked this as one of my favorite reads of the year. Once you pick it up and start it you will understand why. The audio really brings this to life. I doubt I would have had the same reaction if I had read it. There is no way you will want this book to end, the secret is big the power of love is even bigger. This is a story that will stay with you for a long time. Come listen to a touching story which will change the way you think about life, love and what true happiness really is.
