Love Changes: Is There Enough of Mia to Go Around by Eartha Watts-Hicks follows the story of Mia Love and her heartaches, exploring her emotional growth, and the ultimate choice she has to make between chasing love and embracing her heart’s deepest desire, a story that reminded me so much of the characters in Paolo Coelho’s novels.

Mia stops her college education so she can work and support her live-in boyfriend, Spider. She is head over boots in love with the guy, who works for a simple record label, even if no one sees any reason why she should want to marry him. But then she becomes pregnant and her life revolves around Spider and her newborn baby, but will Spider make the ultimate decision to marry her when he catches a break in the music industry? Over time, Mia and Spider have many arguments on the subject of marriage. But things get even more complicated when a third party comes onto the scene, Romell, who, in the guise of a good friend, gets a whole lot of benefits. Watch this stunning drama as Mia navigates her choices, torn between what others want her to do and what she believes could create her ultimate happiness.

Eartha Watts-Hicks’ novel presents a drama that takes place in everyday life. As I read through this story, I couldn’t help but think about how we make important choices about who to marry and how to live our lives. Love and pain are featured as powerful themes and the reader will be interested to find out how these themes are interwoven with family secrets and lies, building a plot that is both gripping and utterly entertaining. Love Changes: Is There Enough of Mia to Go Around is a story that will delight and inform readers, a page-turner.
