A Million Little Choices

Sometimes secrets just won't stay hidden . . .

Two women from different centuries living in the same house share strikingly similar journeys.

Claire Powell’s life is turned upside down when her beloved husband admits to a “near affair.” But when Stephen accepts a partnership with an Atlanta law firm without consulting her and buys a historic Southern home sight-unseen—it pushes their already-fractured marriage to the breaking point. Claire’s world spirals, and she soon finds herself in a marriage she no longer wants, in a house she never asked for.

In 1863, Charlotte Thursmann, pregnant and trapped in a marriage to an abusive husband, struggles to protect her unborn child and the enslaved members of her household. Desperate, she’s determined to right the evils her husband and others like him commit. But how can one woman put an end to such injustice? Especially if her husband makes good on his threat to kill her?

Both Claire and Charlotte discover truths about themselves they never realized, along with secrets long hidden that hold the power to bring God’s restoration—if only they choose to let it.

A note from Tamera . . .

Thanks for making A Million Little Choices—my first contemporary, first first-person-POV, and first dual-story line novel—an Amazon bestseller as well as an ECPA bestseller...two months in a row! It's a story I'm especially eager to share with you.

The stories that have lived inside me the longest are often the most difficult to write, and A Million Little Choices was certainly that. Not only because of the subject matter—marriage and infidelity—but because these characters are all so real to me and the settings so tangible, that "first words on the page" often felt frustratingly inadequate and thin compared to the living, breathing movie inside me.

But I drew closer to Christ in the writing, and pray you do, too, in the reading.
