Everyone needs a town like Last Chance, where people accept you no matter what your past and love you for who you are even if they don't know you. Where people take you under their wing and give you a fresh new beginning and a chance to get back on your feet again. This is what this book is about. A group of caring Christian people in a small girl take a young girl into their home, life, and town and nurture her back to a new life. She is running from her past, but doesn't everyone in Last Chance have a past? People learn to forgive and focus on the here and now rather than what used to be. I like that! It is not always easy to get past the past, but God forgives and forgets and with Him we all can become new creatures. What I love about this book is that people care, and give second chances. The story was very enjoyable, the characters real and their stories believable. Last Chance is a place any of us could call home.
