My book reading went WAY down this month however I did find a book that I am putting up as my Monthly Book Favorite.
Karen Kingsbury The Chance. 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. – Taken from GoodReads
I know that this book won’t be for everyone but I enjoyed the tale of second chances and that even when your life seems utterly broken that things can change for the better. The concept of forgiving others and finding peace in that is something I sorta love.
The romance was fairly adorable too. I love stories based on childhood crushes or best friends reuniting, finding each other again and falling in love. All make for a good story in my opinion.
If you are in the market for an uplifting tale about second chances and such then I would say, go pick this one up.
