The Chosen is the second of Emma Calin's short stories I have read. Both are jewels that come at life from the underside of the leaf. They are stories of ordinary, common people who hold to their dreams and reach for things beyond their grasp.
The Chosen is a story about unquenchable hope, ill-founded on a love sure to go bad. It is about hare-brained schemes, not thought-through, sure to fail.
The first sentence sums it up: "Of course, there had to be a woman in the story."
I also enjoyed Oscar Sparrow's narration of the free audio version of the story available to purchasers of the book.
