When twenty-one-year-old virgin Jordan Sullivan discovers she is pregnant and having twins, solving the mystery of how she got pregnant, when she’d never had sex, quickly takes a back seat to a whole new set of choices she is now facing. Initially, it seems that the twins may be an “apology” from God for allowing her parents to be brutally murdered a couple of years ago. In Choices: Arrival of the Fourth Generation, by Coleen Liebsch, Jordan quickly comes to understand that the birth of her twin boys may be less of a gift from God and more a trial of her love and beliefs. The mysterious Mr. Tanas and the discovery that her beautiful twins are in fact the fourth generation of a genetic breeding program begun way back in Germany, by the infamous Dr. Mengele, only make her choices harder and more crucial.
Choices is one of the most innovative, fresh, and fascinating premises I’ve read in a long time. I was instantly sucked into the story from the very beginning and couldn’t emerge until I found out the result of the choices Jordan had to make. Liebsch has produced a story full of memorable characters and moral dilemmas they must face and overcome. I found Mr. Tanas to be the perfect epitome of the character he was written to be. As the first episode of what will no doubt be a fascinating journey with these two twin boys, I will definitely be looking to read the next exciting installment of Choices. This book is a triumph in its genre and I absolutely adored the writing, the style, and the plot machinations. An excellent piece of work and kudos to Coleen Liebsch for her book, Choices.
