From the beginning of my copyediting career, I have maintained that every copy editor should have tattooed (at least metaphorically) across his or her knuckles: It's Not My Book. I do not consider "That's not the way I would write it" to EVER be sufficient reason to change something. OTOH, I have had an author absolutely insist that an error in fact be stetted, even when I produced evidence that it was an error. I agree with Meg's comment above; a second opinion, from an experienced editor/copy editor, would be valuable.
