Book Description

June 24 2004
When a young boy finds a mysterious object in the creek near his home, his parents launch an investigation that will eventually link the ancient object to such remarkable figures as George Washington Carver, Oskar Shindler, Joan of Arc, and Alfred Vanderbilt. Separate pieces of the artifact-with different but similar inscriptions-shape the lives of those who possess the object. With each new discovery come new questions: What is the connection between these objects? Is there is another piece? And, if so, how might this final piece complete the object and its message? Could it, indeed, change the very world with its power and wisdom? A dramatic epilogue reveals not only the origin and fulfillment of this amazing artifact, but also the guiding principles behind this story that can be applied directly to readers' lives.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Bestselling author Andrews (The Traveler's Gift) takes a cue from the success of his previous book, built around time travel, motivational ideas and historical figures, and continues in the same vein. When Mark and Dorry Chandler find an odd bronze object in a ditch in their Denver backyard, they begin to investigate its origin. Andrews develops the theme of the importance of making good choices, using the motif of four inscribed ancient bronze objects that together form a cup. Each fragment symbolizes choices that its historic owner made, influenced by the object. Using flashbacks, Andrews offers numerous short vignettes of the different historical figures who possessed each of the fragments, including Oskar Schindler, Alfred Vanderbilt, John Adams and George Washington Carver among others. The flashbacks are simply presented, and they often have the feel of fictional minibiographies for young readers rather than meaty adult fare. There's nothing particularly compelling about the storytelling—the mechanics of fiction are creaky in places—but that's not the point. Rather, the book stands on the positive message that one person by his or her decisions can change the world. As he did in The Traveler's Gift, Andrews should appeal to those readers looking for an uncomplicated motivational read with a dollop of history thrown in for good measure.

Young or old, it is not too early or too late to make a difference in your life and those around you.

In The Lost Choice Andy Andrews weaves together history and legend to deliver a very positive, heart-warming message about the value of all human beings and the impact an individual has. His detailed historical settings and characters combined with his compelling writing makes for a real page turner.
The relationship Andrews develops between the main characters of the book is appealing and draws the reader into this circle of friends. As these friends get to know and like each other more, the reader is also growing to know and like them better as well. As the main characters embark on a journey of discovery you are compelled to journey with them.
As a father, I found the concept of legacy between generations that Andrews develops incredibly interesting and emotionally stirring.
There are only a few books that I can honestly say "changed me", The Lost Choice is one of those books. I read it in three sittings and could barely put it down. I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars I was hooked on the first page! July 10 2004
I seldom read self-help type books but started this one and was hooked by the first page. I literally read it in 2 days. The story is exceptional. It would be a great book to read to or with others and discuss what happens as the story unfolds. When I finished, I read parts of it again. It is truly not an ordinary book. It is much more than a self-help book; it is one for changing the way we live!!

I've always read two types of books. One type is for self improvement. I'm not always riveted to the pages, but usually gleen some sort of information that helps me live a richer, more productive and fulfilling life. The other type is the novel. When I go on vacation I love to lie in a hammock or on the beach and escape with a great story. THE LOST CHOICE is a rare read in that it combines the two into one awesome story. In this incredible tale of mystery and revelation Andy Andrews once again weaves true experiences in the lives of men and women who have contributed to the fabric of our society with a fictionalized story of a lost artifact and the group of friends who seek its meaning. The story left me hopeful and energized. One of the great discoveries within the pages of THE LOST CHOICE is that we all make a difference! Each of our individual souls contain the same great intrinsic value and worth of those historical figures who have made a positive difference throughout the ages. Read THE LOST CHOICE. It's Andy Andrews' finest offering yet.
