A NovelBook - 2010
"Gritty and suspenseful, Chosen draws us into the obstacle-strewn path of domestic adoption."
--Juliette Fay, author of Shelter Me
A young caseworker increasingly entangled in the lives of adoptive and birth parents faces life-altering choices when an extortion attempt goes horribly wrong in Chosen. Written in the spirit of Jodi Picoult and Anna Quindlen, Chosen is an extraordinary debut novel from Chandra Hoffman that deals with the controversial subject of adoption while providing a riveting read that will equally ensnare lovers of suspense, domestic drama, and literary fiction.

Fans of Picoult and Bohjalian might enjoy this story of an adoption case worker who gets too close to the families she's working with. This would be a great book discussion title, as it raises many questions about adoption processes for which there are no right answers.
