I have recently reviewed The Noticer and The Heart Mender, both books were written by Andy Andrews.  I must admit that I have become a huge fan of anything by this author, and couldn't wait to read some of his other books.

The Lost Choice, A Legend of Personal Discovery was first published in 2004. As the story begins, five year old Michael Chandler discovered a very interesting object as he was playing at the creek next to the family home. He tucked  the little circular object into his pocket to look at later, and it was basically forgotten until his Mom emptied his pockets while doing laundry.  This is the beginning of a series of events as Michael's parents search for the origin of the mysterious relic.  As the pieces of the puzzle fit together, their lives will be changed drastically.

I wish I could say more about this amazing little book, but I don't want to spoil the surprise.  The Lost Choice is filled with subtle, life-changing lessons that are woven into a tale of adventure, mystery and history.  It is a gentle yet profound reminder of the opportunities that each of us have each day of our lives, and the significance that these choices have both now and in the future.

As with all books I have read by this fascinating author, I highly recommend this book!

Disclosure:  I purchased this book for my personal book collection, and I received no compensation for my thoughts.
