About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

Fortunate Choices is a story of the Brenners, an affluent Northern Virginia family's mutually supportive passage through a crucible of their lives during 1998-2003, as the good life of peace and prosperity of the late 90's gives way to the economic turmoil and war on terror of the new century. The narrative insightfully portrays Blake's leadership of a high-technology strategic planning firm into international prominence, Alicia's building a start-up interior design business, and explores the intricate interrelationships of family, social, and business life, as the parents and two teens make choices that will shape their individual and collective values and futures with surprising results.
