“I forgot to do something in my life. I forgot to have kids.”

Life has changed tremendously in the last hundred years. Where women use to dream only of marrying and having a family, now women can develop a career and decide themselves when is the best time to marry or to have children. However, life doesn’t always work out the way you plan.

Sherri Richmond loves her life of working in Manhattan for a group of attorneys. She is not concerned about money or the time that she spends earning that money. Life for her now is successful and she thrives on the stress, competitiveness, and ambition the keeps her near the top of the corporate ladder. Being briefly married earlier in her life, has just strengthened her sense of independence and made her proud of her personal accomplishments in the business world.

Then she meets Kent Weber. Skeptically, she finds him to be perfect for her. She is uncertain of anyone being just too good to be true, but he really seems to be genuine. The two quickly marry and begin their life together. Both though find themselves longing for children after being married for five years and this is their story of fulfilling that need.

The strength of Chasing Her Destiny is the realism when nature does not always cooperate with our personal desires. The struggle emotionally with infertility is a subject that is not often mentioned.
This is a story for anyone who wants a child and for some undiagnosed or logical reason, just cannot become pregnant and the effect this can have on both a husband and a wife.

Chasing Her Destiny is a well-written romance novel. The characterizations are realistic and visual. The pacing is superb with the reader feeling the empathy and triumphs along with the characters. The novel actual flows from one page to the next with a loving fluency for smoothness as each word becomes alive on each page.

Chasing Her Destiny is Terri Friedlander’s third contemporary novel. This one is somewhat based on her own life and is also dedicated to the victims of the September 11th terrorist attacks.

Although Chasing Her Destiny is basically a woman’s romance novel, there is a depth of the characters that men could also appreciate. More than a romance novel, this is a novel about life.
