The Chance by Karen Kingsbury


I really enjoyed reading this new book by Karen Kingsbury. 

This story is the perfect example of how one choice (good or bad) can set a series of events into motion, creating a ripple effect. I enjoyed the characters, and how their lives remained connected by the tiniest threads even when some of them lost touch. Those who are familiar with Karen's writing, will not be disappointed that she weaves faith and God all through this book. This story touches on second chances and lost love.

If you are looking for a sweet, heartwarming love story, this is it!


In The Chance, New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury delves deeply into a theme that resonates with us all: It’s never too late for those willing to take a chance.

Years ago, the day before Ellie moved from Georgia to California, she and her best friend Nolan sat beneath the Spanish moss of an ancient oak tree where they wrote letters to each other, and sealed them in a rusty old metal box. The plan was to return eleven years later and read them. But now, as that date arrives, much has changed. Ellie, bereft of the faith she grew up with, is a single mom living in a tired apartment trying to make ends meet. Sometimes she watches television to catch a glimpse of her old friend —Nolan, now an NBA star, whose terrible personal tragedies fueled his faith and athletic drive in equal measure. But Nolan also suffers from a transcendent loneliness that nothing has ever eased.
