Choices of the Heart by Rhonda Kooyman is one of the most terrifying and moving novels I have read in a long time. It is written mostly as the fictitious memoir of a woman named Tracy Dewitt who became entrapped by a psychotic and manipulative boyfriend who brutally abused her for years. Though this story is fiction, it seems very real because Tracy's story happens to women every day all over the world. They know they can't stay with their abuser because they'll end up being killed, yet at the s ...more

A close friend of mine handed me this book and said: “Here I think you should read this, you might get something out of it”. He was right. I am not much of a reader, but I quickly followed Tracy through her journey. I was able to relate to a lot of the things Tracy was going through as I have traveled along her path in my own life from time to time. I had a hard time reading just one chapter, I couldn’t put it down! God put this book in my life right when I needed it and my friend was right I de ...more

There is a very interesting story behind this review. It started off as a rocky relationship between myself and the Kindle version of this book. What has come out of that, is a learning experience and an encounter with a writer that to me was worth every penny and then some. So, thank you Rhonda Kooyman. ;)

Here's how it went down: I read the Kindle version, which the publisher apparently over-priced and then pushed through without editing. I wrote a bad review based on that version, which I hat

I just finished Choices of the Heart and I have to say, a book hasn't pulled me into the story like that in a long time. I found myself wanting to protect Tracy during the entire reading. You brought the characters to life and it was a true pleasure to get to know each of them. The entire plot was great and the ending was perfect. You are a very gifted writer and I look forward to your next novel!
I'm struggling to review this book. Don't get me wrong it was easy to read and want to know what was going to happen next but I prefer my leading men to be less psychotic. The predominate force of choice leads us on a journey many of us have traveled to find happiness. Although a book of fiction I'm betting that if you choose to read this book you will get something out of it.

Excellent debut novel by Rhonda Rhonda Kooyman

Choices of the Heart grabbed my attention from page one. By the time I read page two I couldn't put it down. A very good read for all women, many who I'm sure can relate to at least one scene/incident in this novel. Excellent work, Rhonda! I, along with many others, will be hoping for a second novel soon. You are a very talented writer!
