Relationships and marriages. Some are great and memorable, some are despicable and detestable. In the story of Choosing Hope, by author Holly Kammier, all of these fit the description of Hope Sullivan’s idyllic relationship and marriage. What she thought was a perfect thing became her downfall.
The synopsis of Choosing Hope by Holly Kammier:
A love affair.
A lie that changes it all…

Hope’s affair is just the beginning. Her journey inward will require untangling her complicated past and surviving an astonishing revelation. Her lover is not who he pretends to be.

My review of Choosing Hope by Holly Kammier:
Wow, this book really talks about the struggles of a relationship. It makes you wonder who people really are and what they may be hiding underneath the surface. While parts of the book were really intense, other parts felt unnecessary. But I suppose in a book that talks about abuse in a way, there are certain topics you must understand fully in order to grasp the horrors of abuse.
Choosing Hope is a great title as life really is about choosing oneself in order to be at peace. In a perfect world we would all have perfect relationships and perfect families. But in the case of Hope Sullivan, her idyllic life of a perfect marriage was just that – a dream since childhood. As she slowly peels back the layers of her marriage, she realizes that love is an obscure thing, an image that can be conjured up to live a life of luxury and bliss. When Hope becomes fed up with her husband and her marriage, she turns to the one man who had her back when she was younger.
But oh, the heart and the mind do deceive indeed! What she thought could be a perfect new life with her lost love doesn’t necessarily work out as planned, Hope realizes that self love is more important than any love with a man. As she journeys through shocking revelations, Hope unravels but eventually picks herself up, dusts off the bitterness, and begins a new life on her own.
