The Chance

Full Product Description

In Karen Kingsbury’s stand-alone novel, The Chance, you’re assured of a heartwarming story about childhood friends, broken lives, and a long ago promise that just might offer the hope of love for today.

Here is a theme that resonates deeply with us all: that redemptive seeking for a transformation that proves it’s never too late for those willing to take a chance.

The bestselling Christian author’s novel begins years ago, the day before the book’s heroine, Ellie, moved from Georgia to California. Then she and her best friend Nolan had 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.

Their joint 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.

In their separate lives, as Ellie and Nolan move toward the possibility of a reunion at the oak tree, Kingsbury weaves a tale of heart-wrenching loss, the power of faith, and the wounds that only love can heal.

In The Chance, Karen Kingsbury provides you with a single refreshing dip into a good read rather than the full immersion of her usual epic series. An invigorating diversion for experienced Kingsbury readers and an easy introduction or gift opportunity for those new to the world of Christian romantic and faith based life changing literature.

The Chance by Karen Kingsbury was published by Simon & Schuster in March 2014 and is our 6843rd best seller. The ISBN for The Chance is 9781849839655.
