The Chance

Review by Deb Watling

“From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury comes a heartwarming story about childhood friends, broken lives and a long-ago promise that just might offer the hope of love for today.”

This book lived up to my expectations of a captivating, enjoyable read of a story that could happen to any of us. Despite the personal tragedies there is God’s surrounding love. The hope of fulfilling a long-ago promise is the focus of the story which takes us through a decade of life experiences in the lives of two families. “Kingsbury delves deeply into a theme that resonates within us all: Hope lives for those willing to take a chance.”

I would recommend this book for those who enjoy Karen Kingsbury’s works … it is a positive, uplifting story. Those who enjoy reality shows would also enjoy this novel. It is realistic, positive and moves quickly. The information on the flyleaf of the book is accurate and the promised positive reaction was my response to this book.
