What Readers Say about Unplanned Choices

 

Couldn’t put it down.

Incredible. A historical novel that outlines the never-spoken-aboutsexual revolution and restrictions of women’s reproductive rights. The book was so realistic, the characters the same. Easy to get to know them. Iwanted to read more and more since I too grew up in that era. By Lou October 5, 2013.

 

Unplanned Choices Explores Sexuality, Religion, Abortion and Culture in a Stimulating, Gripping Manner

Unplanned Choices explores sexuality, religion, abortion, and culture in a stimulating, gripping manner.Unplanned Choices is a gripping book. I read it whenever I could until it ended. I want more from it, and I want more of it. By Robert J. Anderson on December 1, 2013.

 

I could not put it down it left such an impression.

I had to reread it again. I encourage everyone to read to see how far we have come with our rights as women. Please don't let them take it away from us. I was impressed that a man could write so openly and honestly with such insight on the issue of abortion. I will definitely put Mr. Hopkins books on my reading list.

It's a page turner from page 1.

I really enjoyed this book and found it hard to put down The story linewas fascinating and the relationship it has to our present political climate is frightening. Every congressman and senator should read it along with every justice sitting on the Supreme Court. The thought that Roe v. Wade is even a matter for discussion let alone reversal is archaic and barbaric. They need to read this book for an accounting of what could happen if a woman's right to choose is taken away. I loved the courageous spirit of the women (and men) in this book. I think that style lends itself to a fast read and one that keeps you on your toes. It is now making its way around our office. I will definitely purchase this writer’s second book. By a verified Amazon Customer on January 12, 2016

 

Awesome Read

I can relate to this book, as a young teenager and young adult in this era when abortion was illegal.

The book shows the doubt of a young woman back in the 60's who did not have a lot of choices in having to deal with a unplanned pregnancy. They had nowhere to turn except to find someone to help in their turmoil who did not have the skills of a professional physician. Some paid with their life as so well portrayed in this book.

While reading Unplanned Choices I was transported to my youth and the era of secret relationships. Many memories of the pressure of feeling guilty about natural impulses were resurrected. The characters are clearly defined and draw the reader into the story with enough tension to hold interest. Read this book for a wonderful perspective of a time gone bye but still relevant to today’s social, political, and psychological issues. By Amazon Customer on June 11, 2016

 

Compelling and Informative

I recently experienced the pleasure of reading Frank Hopkins first book "unplanned choices ".it proved to be quite provocative, a real "page turner," always educating while inspiring serious thought. Hopkins probes abortion through the lens of Catholicism, re-introducing us to Margaret Sanger an early feminist, women's rights activist and nurse who coined the term "birth control," ultimately opening the first clinic in the United States. Additionally, he explores civil liberties and the Vietnam War. The narrative flows developing the characters while analyzing their choices. I would highly recommend this book.

Loved It

Unplanned Choices is the first book written by Frank Hopkins that I have read. I can promise that it won't be the last. I have the other 3 books already on kindle. I stayed interested in the story from the beginning. The characters seemed real and easy to relate to. The very best part for me was when the story took a surprising turn. I highly recommend this to anyone that loves to read. I expect to see many more books written by this talented author. By B. Cashell on December 12, 2017.

Just finished reading “Unplanned Choices” by Frank E Hopkins. I could not put it down. He writes a very interesting story and it is even more interesting for people like myself who lived and experienced those times – remembering how things were, how we dated, what we did (or didn’t do), all the songs he refer to. Most of all, our fear of unwanted pregnancy and the shame that it would bring to us and our families. The details were so vivid it really took me down memory lane... Gunther on February 14, 2018

 

The Abortion Issue Confronted

In Mr. Hopkins’ novel Unplanned Choices, one of the topics he very openly tackles is the controversial issue of abortion. Mr. Hopkins has written an entertaining yet extremely thought provoking book which can serve as a springboard for deep conversations about abortion. This moving story may cause the reader to more thoroughly scrutinize a political candidate’s stance on abortion which could influence how the reader votes. Dialogues, debates, elections and judges’ decisions will determine whether Roe vs. Wade is upheld or overturned, affecting future generations. Put this insightful, easy read at the top of your list!

A Great Read!

Thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel by Frank Hopkins. The book was well-written and easy to read. I couldn't put this book down until I knew where next the book was going. Historically, fascinating dealing with a time well familiar to me. A great read! Sally Scarangella on March 1, 2018

 

A real page turner

I just finished the last half of Frank Hopkins’ Unplanned Choices in one sitting and immediately wanted to read more from this author. He has captured precisely the background of a turbulent era when the Viet Nam War was raging on American television screens and Roe vs. Wade had not yet been decided. Promising young graduate students Steve and Anna fall in love and must struggle with the moral and mortal consequences of a terrible and unplanned choice. Carole Ottesen on October 26, 2017.
