    A Compelling Look at Forgiveness

    Southeast Kansas, Spring 1909. Mercy McClain was ruthlessly tormented by Aaron Firebrook as a girl. When he shows up seeking a teaching position in front of her and other school board members she is taken back to her youth and vows he shall never step foot in the classroom. Aaron has come full circle, having to overcome his own boyhood tortures, and coming to grips with finding value in himself through Christ. He has returned to Teaville to beg forgiveness from the people he wronged and hopefully provide guidance to other kids either being bullied or bullying. While he awaits the school board’s decision, he accepts temporary employment at the local orphanage, having no idea that is where Mercy McClain also works. Jimmy is a troubled young teen who consistently acts out. Aaron is asked to step in and help guide him if he can. But Jimmy is extremely difficult and causes problems throughout the story. It causes Aaron to have flashbacks of his own troubled past. The more time Mercy and Aaron spend with one another, the more they are each drawn to the person they see in front of them, each filled with kindness for others. The story takes a look at prejudice toward the poor and the women and children of the red light district. It even touches on child-hood rape which is important to note if you are sensitive to that topic. It is tastefully discussed, but heavy none-the-less. And there is some violence. It also looks at forgiveness and survival in circumstances beyond one’s control. Overall, it is a good story, just not light entertainment. Faith plays a key role as one would hope when reading a Christian novel, and I would recommend it to a friend.

    A Chance at Forever takes an unlikable character and transforms him into a sweetheart of a hero. How many lives could be changed if we would pray for our enemies instead of badmouthing them? Aaron requests mercy from Mercy, who he had tormented during their childhood. It takes a while but she eventually sees that he has indeed become a new man. This book reminds me of how much I’ve changed through the years yet I don’t often give others that benefit of the doubt. This is such an entertaining and convicting book. I highly recommend it. I received a free copy of this book. The opinion is my own.

    Sweet Romance about love and forgiveness

    I really enjoyed A Chance at Forever. This is the third book in the series. The heroine Mercy was bullied as a little girl by the hero Aaron. As an adult, and a born again Christian he attempts to ask forgiveness from Mercy and others as well. This book is well written and easy to read. I loved the message of forgiving others. I also loved the sweet romance as well. *I was given a copy of this book by the publisher and this is my honest opinion.

    great themes

    Aaron Firebrook returns to Teaville hoping to make amends for his bullying ways as a child by being a teacher and influencing others for good and protecting the innocent. However, Mercy McClain, one of the girls he bullied, is a member of the school board and when Aaron comes looking for a job, she doesn't believe that Aaron has changed his ways and won't vote for him to receive the position. Aaron doesn't blame Mercy for not trusting him, but he truly wants to make amends, and while it's too much for him to expect Mercy to forgive him, he hopes he can show her that he really wants to help the children. I really enjoyed this book. I liked the themes of making amends for past wrongs, finding forgiveness, and allowing others to change. I have really enjoyed reading this series, and I liked seeing Mercy get her own story. (The books do not have to be read in order.) I read a copy via NetGalley. All opinions are my own.

    An amazing story of forgiveness

    George Aaron Firebrook has returned to Teaville to try to make restitution for the wrongs he committed as a child. He knows that God has forgiven him, but will any of the others? He hopes that applying to teach will also give him an opportunity to help young boys who are like he used to be. But, when he realizes that the woman on the school board used to be one of his victims, he can only plead for her to live up to her name, Mercy. Mercy McClain is torn. Does she expose Mr Firebrook for who he used to be or does she give him a chance to prove himself as he begged her to do? How can she believe that anyone as bad as he used to be could ever change? But, when he shows up at the orphanage as the new tutor and gardener, she can't help but try to warn Mr Lowe. Unfortunately, Mr Lowe is willing to give him a chance! What follows is one of the most amazing stories of forgiveness and allowing God to change you from someone bent on evil to one seeking to spread the love of God to everyone around. It clearly depicts those characters who choose to allow God to love through them vs those who are hypocrites or prejudiced. It's a complex story with multiple back story elements going on at the same time. The reader gets to follow up with several characters introduced in the previous books. Themes include - Bullying, forgiveness, hypocrisy, revenge, prejudice. Also, the topic of morality / fidelity is touched upon. Romance - PG - kissing only Language - PG - nothing offensive Violence - One fight scene and references to abuse My rating - 5 stars
