This book had moments that me really sad, like when a character's parents were so unforgiving and downright mean. I was thinking no wonder this character turned to drugs and premarital sex.
The book has talk of abortion, but it is a clean book, and I am happy to report that abortion was not part of the story line. This book has a remarriage counseling section on sex, but it also clean and gives a Christian perceptive view so I really recommend this book to readers who like to read clean books with real issues with characters who show that life can have meaning after heartbreaks and failures.
This book though fiction is really inspiring and I think it would be a great book club section. I think it would evoke a great discussion and maybe some healing to others.
I think this is my favorite read of 2020 so far.
I was given a complimentary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit. These opinions are my own.

What inspired you to start writing?
I’ve read many wonderful Christian novels of first-time love. Unfortunately, not all of us have experienced a strong lasting marriage. I’ve met many women who’ve had a husband turn away from their Christian faith and left the marriage. I want to encourage those women that God can restore what was lost with a faithful man.
My message is not to rush ahead of God’s timing. My characters are more cautious since they know life can throw unexpected blows. They learn to trust and open their hearts again, which takes time.
My first series tackles the central issue of divorce. More Than A Second Chance also addresses the challenges of infertility and grief. The story is wrapped around a new romance with plenty of humor and light-hearted moments to balance out the themes.
