As an editor of mainly memoirs and spiritual books, I hadn't treated myself to a novel in almost 15 years. Well, can I just tell you, "Hidden Choices" reacquainted me with the pleasures of fiction! I remained all curled up on the couch, despite my husband's repeat inquiries as to why I was putting off my Saturday errands, which are usually done by noon. Not that day! White's way with storytelling and dialogue kept me turning the pages in dire curiosity over who would be Miranda's choice. I found the ending emotionally satisfying because it stunned me. Are you too a romance lover who relishes the depth of human complexity? Very well then, this book leaves no choice but to recommend it.

Format: Paperback
Sadly, some women never find "Mr. Right." Others, like Miranda, the main character in "Hidden Choices," are faced with the dilemma of choosing between two men.

Miranda's choices involve an attractive, mentally challenged Jeremy, a younger man who envelops her with passion and a sweetness that she never shared with her deceased husband. Yet Jeremy's misunderstanding of certain social situations unleashes a temper and a stigma of being "slow" that worries Miranda. Nick, Miranda's alternate choice for a life partner, provides Miranda with intellectual stimulation, affection, a comfortable lifestyle, but a looming question mark about intimacy.

Carol White's successful character development of Jeremy and Nick makes the reader feel very much a part of Miranda's ultimate decision to choose between the two. I indulged in Miranda's sexual awakening and felt her soul searching as she weighs what her heart and body and intellect are telling her. Even the intriguing book cover, which depicts two women's silhouettes in contrasting blue and gold hues, reflects the complexity of Miranda's life decision.

Until the very end, Ms. White keeps the reader guessing what choice Miranda will eventually make. "Hidden Choices" is a "must read" "not to be put down until finished" book that leaves the reader asking: did Miranda make the right decision?

Format: Paperback
Even though this is a novella that reads quickly and smoothly, the author packs in weighty issues with far-reaching tentacles. Despite the complexities, it still feels like a light, breezy read. The writing is straightforward, direct and concise; not wordy and flowery. It is a study in contrasts on several levels, comparing country life to city life, simple man to intellectual man, her past marriage to a possible future one. Loved the twist at the end!

Reading the engagingly straight-forward prose was refreshing. I was so immersed in Miranda's dilemma that I found myself making her life changing choice for her. Boy, was I wrong! I was never led down the garden path so cleverly and hope Ms. White will continue to disarm me.

This book is not like most romances. The hero is mentally challenged. The heroine is not so young. The story is told in a narrative first person style which might make the 'show don't tell' crowd howl, but is actually quite effective. It's like a nice lady relating her sweet memories to you, the reader, her friend. The storytelling is lovely, the characters likeable and the situation fresh.
My only beef is with the ending. I don't want to give away any spoilers, so I will just say I wish it had gone the other way. That's my opinion and in no way implies the book is bad the way it was written. Great read. Highly recommended.

This story is an easy and light read. But, the choice that the main character must make is not easy or light. I think it's great that this author explored what many would label as a more nontraditional relationship. She gave me enough about the characters and relationship to make me grapple with whether I would I consider such a relationship. And, then the author made me put some thought into what would I do if I was faced with the main character's choice? That's enough reason for me to recommend this book.
