Salt Lake City (PRWEB) June 20, 2014
BernardBooks announced today that local Arizona author Gypsy Rae Choszer has released her debut novel, Rain Check. Touching elegantly on the subject of adoption and the journey to finding your birth mother, Choszer weaves a story of love, loss and secrets and what we can learn from each.
According to the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, approximately 120,000 children are adopted in the United States each year. Speaking to the inspiration for her book, Gypsy Rae Choszer said, “Having a family member and several close friends who are adopted made me curious about what might happen if someone grew up not knowing they had been adopted, but upon finding out decided to meet their birth mom.” And it’s that personal detail that makes this novel shine.
About Gypsy Rae Choszer
Gypsy Rae Choszer grew up in the valley below Mount Timpanogos where she watched the apricot trees in her backyard bloom every spring. When she was eighteen she packed her bags and ran away to the exotic locale of Mesa, Arizona to begin the work of being an adult. Gypsy’s love of reading began as a child when her mom would take her to their local library and let her bring home stacks of whatever she wanted. This often lead to Gypsy reading with a dictionary nearby to explain words she intuitively knew her mother wouldn't approve of. In her spare time she likes to explore photography, make jewelry, eat chocolate, and mix magical potions. When she’s not writing, you can find Gypsy hanging out at home with her husband and best friend, their three children, a neurotic dog, and four chickens. However, Gypsy knows her family will not be complete until she brings home a peacock and a goat. You can find Gypsy at Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/gypsyraewrites and Twitter: @GypsyRaeWrites.
About Rain Check
For Avery Montgomery, the devastation of losing her parents in a tragic accident has left her completely shattered. As she begins to pick up the pieces of her once perfect life, she uncovers a secret that will forever change her—she’s adopted! In a search for answers, Avery ventures to Portland where she rents a room from Jonah, a quirky artist who quickly becomes her best friend. His house puts her in close proximity to the metaphysical shop run by her birth mother, the free-spirited Marianna Hutchins. Avery enters The Crystal Moon fully intending to confront Marianna, but instead she chickens out and inquires about a job. She's hired; yet remains leery about confessing her secret.
As Avery settles into town, she has an embarrassing encounter with Gabe, the man who works a few doors down. Despite the awkward introduction, there is undeniable chemistry, but after a recent heartbreak all he’s looking for is friendship. Everyone deserves a second chance. Will Avery get hers with a new family? Will Gabe allow himself a second chance at love? Will they embrace their new relationships, or will they simply decide to take a rain check? Due to mature content, Rain Check is recommended for readers over 18.
