Preorder A Chance at Forever - Out on March 6th!

   In early 1900s Kansas, Mercy McClain, determined to protect Teaville’s children from the bullying she experienced as a child, finds fulfillment working at the local orphanage and serving on the school board. When Aaron Firebrook, the classmate who bothered her more than any other, petitions the board for a teaching position, she’s dead set against him getting the job.

Aaron knows he deserves every bit of Mercy’s mistrust, but he’s returned to his hometown a changed man and is seeking to earn forgiveness of those he wronged. He doesn’t expect Mercy to like him, but surely he can prove he now has the best interests of the children at heart.

Will resentment and old wounds hold them back, or can Mercy and Aaron put the past behind them in time to face the unexpected threats to everything they’re working for?

And I declare, Melissa Jagears writes some of the most swoon-worthy, pent-up-emotion revealing, culminating awesomeness of kissing scenes ever. She makes you wait for it, but then delivers in the best way possible, and the scene here is no exception. I do think though, that readers who don’t want a lot of romance in their books could still be happy with this one, because it’s not full of scenes like that, and because it’s not, it makes the ending even more poignant.

Let’s not pretend though, that it’s all about the fluff. You don’t just want the heart palpitations and adoring looks, guys. You also want the depth, don’t you? This book gives you just that. Delving into a part of society that most people don’t like to think about. Melissa does a truly wonderful job of making sure that we don’t forget that there are people less fortunate than us, and that the amazing God we serve desires for us to look out for those people. Such a wonderful story of faith!
