  1. S.R.A. says:

    Her Choice is the story of a middle-aged woman grappling with an agonising dilemma - one that threatens to alienate her from her own family. As Asha desperately seeks answers, she is confronted by a multitude of opinions and perspectives that only add to her confusion. In search for some clarity, she embarks on an extraordinary journey, replete with adventure, intrigue and poignant moments.

    Written with the deft skill of a master storyteller, this novel captures the reader's attention at the outset and retains it as the plot delicately weaves its way towards a moving denouement. With its vivid characters, lively dialogues and compelling storyline, this is a novel that will stay with you for a very long time.

    I picked out Her Choice because it is a multicultural novel – my favorite genre. Barbara Raghavan is well qualified to write it having lived as an expat in both India and Ireland (and a number of other countries).
    Asha is an Indian woman in a traditional marriage living in Ireland. She is shocked to find herself pregnant when she believes she is well into – or past - menopause. The book delves into different social-cultural mores, religion and the controversial topic of abortion. Asha’s choices might not be the ones you would make – but they are decisive. A woman of fifty – she shows you can still grow, learn and adapt to circumstances.

    The story picks up momentum about a 1/3 of the way into the book. The ending may surprise you, but it rings true to real life. An easy and light read - refreshing for a subject that could be quite heavy. I'll look for more interesting reads from Barbara Raghavan.

    “Her Choice” a fast-paced and thought provoking book.

    As if a pregnancy later in life is not enough, 50-year-old Asha’s life is further complicated by an authoritarian husband, a rebellious daughter, a prying friend, a traditionalist priest, and a Polish house keeper who speaks little English. Asha and her families Indian traditions clash with those of modern Dublin.

    It’s interesting to see Asha respond to her stressful life by becoming more resilient, stronger and more self-reliant. By the end, Asha is not the same woman that she was when the book began.

    The story moves along at a good clip thanks to heavy doses of drama, humor, genuine insight into how people overcome the difficulties associated with living life.

    It is a tale of love, life and difficult decisions. Asha tries to come to terms with middle age and then something unexpected happens. Asha was portrayed as a very real person and soon I started feeling like she was my real friend. I was really concerned about what will happen in her life. Excellent reading. Keeps your interest throughout.

  5. Rae Wheeler says:

    Asha is a middle aged, middle eastern woman in a traditional marriage who has dedicated her life to her family. She made a home with her doctor husband in Ireland, and dutifully raised their now adult daughter. Asha is perplexed and upset to find she is pregnant. Of course she thought she was through menopause!

    If this book was made into a movie, I would love it!

    This book was easy to read, but hard to put down. The author has a strong grasp on how to invite the reader into the main character's world, and I felt the same stressors, Asha did as she navigated life after becoming pregnant.

    The best part of this book is the characters', the dialogue (I could practically hear the accents), and the realism of the story.

    There are some minor typo's, but nothing that impedes with the flow of the story!

    Nice Read!
    Barbara Raghavan describes herself as being passionate about psychology, and both her novels reflect this. Her earlier novel (“Born to be Perfect”) brings out the near-universal prevalence of human foibles in society. In “Her Choice”, she explores the complex psychological attitudes to abortion with a deft touch and a racy plot, building up to a couple of unexpected, heart-wrenching twists at the end.
