About the Author
Corky Thacker is a successful professional writer whose work has appeared in newspapers, international trade publications, and on the radio. Her boutique marketing communications agency served business-to-business and technical clients for twenty years prior to her retirement. Family of Choice: Raising Each Other draws on her three decades of experience in the recovery community as well as her interest in roses and vintage homes (the first garden she created was featured in This Old House magazine). Corky and her husband grow more than three hundred roses at their home in Cleveland, Ohio. This is her first novel.

Book Review 1:

"Family of Choice is an intimate exploration of relationships and the long work of healing. With compelling characters and nuanced prose, this book sweeps you up in its heartfelt journey. I couldn't put it down!" -- The Rev. Leah Romanelli DeJesus

Book Review 2:

"Overall, a funny, warm book that explores how the family we choose can be more important to our emotional and spiritual growth than the family we are born to. With humor, snappy dialogue, and a bit of spice, there are deeper messages of life's lessons, human growth and maturity, spirituality, and coping with grief and loss. Eminently readable, you'll enjoy meeting Micky, Brad, Lillian and Sally, and wish they were your family, too!" -- Kathleen R. Ashton, Ph.D., ABPP


Book Review 3:

"I was captured by the depth of this story and the characters as well as the author's ability to draw me into this close-knit group of friends. I felt excitement, joy, and sorrow throughout and was pleasantly surprised by unexpected outcomes. Not only is the book a great read, it offers real insight into the complexities of love, faith, life, and death. I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series." -- The Rev. Vincent Black
