"Leaving is about families and relationships and the different kinds of 'leaving' that occur in life. Well-drawn characters and hometown stories make this another Kingsbury hit." (CBA Retailers and Resources)

"Another weeper from Christian-fiction diva Kingsbury, this time featuring a prayerful NBA star and his long-lost first love." (Kirkus Reviews)

"In The Chance, Kingsbury (The Bridge, 2012) delivers another excellent novel filled with heart, adventure, and second chances. . . . Kingsbury is one of the most dependable names in inspirational fiction, and The Chance may be her best yet. She infuses such real emotion into her characters, readers will find themselves in tears multiple times throughout the novel. A beautiful balance of human fragility and the power of God’s grace makes this is a must-read." (Booklist)

"At age 15, Ellie finds her world turned upside down when her parents separate and her father moves them from Georgia to California. A devastated Ellie and her best friend, Nolan, write letters to each other and bury them beneath an oak tree. The two agree that in 11 years, no matter what surprises life brings, they will return and dig up the letters together. VERDICT Reminiscent of Nicholas Spark's The Notebook and Richard Paul Evan's The Walk, Kingsbury's (Coming Home) latest novel offers her characters forgiveness and love without an expiration date. Her many fans, and readers who like to escape their daily cares with a gentle Christian romance with elements of women's fiction, will enjoy the reappearances of Molly and Ryan, familiar characters from The Bridge, as well as a likable cast of fresh protagonists." (Library Journal)

"Kingsbury knows how to get down to business; readers start worrying from the opening sentence about 15-year-old Ellie Tucker and her family: 'Her mom didn't come home for dinner, the third time that week.' . . . The action clips along, and readers root for the main characters. . . . the author pours a fervent message about love and reconciliation into a novel that makes the lesson of hope go down much more easily than it would via sermon." (Publishers Weekly)

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Karen Kingsbury, #1 New York Times bestselling novelist, is America’s favorite inspirational storyteller, with more than twenty-five million copies of her award-winning books in print. Her last dozen titles have topped bestseller lists, and many of her novels are under development as TV movies and major motion pictures. Her many Baxter books will be the subject of a new TV series—The Baxter Family—debuting later this year with Roma Downey, Mark Burnett, and MGM Studios. Karen is also an adjunct professor of writing at Liberty University. She lives in Tennessee with her husband, Don, and their five sons, three of whom are adopted from Haiti. Their actress daughter, Kelsey, lives nearby and is married to Christian recording artist Kyle Kupecky. The couple recently welcomed their first child, Hudson.

I've never read a Karen Kingsbury book before "The Chance", which a friend lent to me. I'm positive it won't be my last.

Karen Kingsbury writes very emotionally, transporting the reader right into the story. I could really identify with many of the various characters' feelings. I actually kept welling up - a lot - while reading "The Chance". You'd be wise to have a box of tissues handy when reading this book.

I didn't think the story line was very realistic though. Or rather there were a few...hmm, let's say there were a few rather convenient turns too many for my liking. I know it's a book of fiction and it probably wasn't even intended to be overly realistic. It's just that I like to think events could be real when I read a book. I'm not even sure why that is but there you go.

However, having said that, I have to admit that I didn't mind too much in this case. After all, as unrealistic as it all may seem, the events could still have occurred because "...with God all things are possible" (Matt 19:26). In human terms, the incredibly happy end isn't very likely but by God's grace it is possible. And that's good enough for me.

"The Chance" is encouraging and heart-warming. It leaves you feeling happy and warm and encouraged. So on that note, enjoy!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Chance 15. März 2013
Von Jennifer @ Bookish Devices - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
After being disappointed (and having a hard time admitting to myself that disappoint) with Karen's last book, The Bridge, I was hesitant to pick up The Chance. I'm glad I did though! Karen was back in this book with the writing style that I'd fallen in love with!

I immediately loved Ellie and Nolan. While most of our mothers probably won't have an affair with a famous country singer and break up our families and most boys won't realize the dream to become a NBA star and make millions - I still found this story very believable and heart felt. Life happens, not all good, but God can use these circumstances to grow us in our faith. That's what I've always loved about Karen's books - real life happens....the good, the bad and the ugly. Most of Karen's books do end with the happily ever after, but the characters have to struggle to find their faith and love of God to get there. God is always there. We forget that sometimes. Molly and Ryan (from The Bridge) also make an appearance in this book and I felt more connected to them in The Chance then I did throughout the entire previous book.

I just don't know how else to express my feelings for this book! I loved it! I cried several times and to me that's the sign of a good book :)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book 8. April 2013
Von Deborah B. Harwell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I definitely recommend this book. It's a light easy reading fiction novel, but at the same time a very hard to put down book. It kept me engaged the entire time and while I think it had a great ending, I was sad when that came because I enjoyed the book so much. Can't wait until the next Karen Kingsbury book comes out and I'm enjoying these stand-alone books, it's a nice change from the series in the past.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sometimes Love stays strong, even if it seems, as if it will never ever work out.... 7. April 2015
Von T. Heintz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
An amazing story about a love deeper than what is commonly found between two people in this fast paced world, where instant gratification seems more attainable, than true love against all odds.

It's amazing, how it turns out, that the two main characters both couldn't let go of what they once had. Parts of it has read like part of my own story. It's about the Forever Love, you find once in a lifetime.....and even if you wanted to, you could not let go.

This book gave me hope, to trust, that my love story might also have a happy ending. I am thankful to Karen for the way, she seems to know, just what I need to read, to keep hanging on, trusting the Lord, that he will make a way, where there seems to be no way!!!

A great read indeed and I cried a river reading it!!!

God bless y'all - enjoy the book - it's amazing ❤️📚❤️

5.0 von 5 Sternen Promises to Keep 29. März 2013
Von Marilyn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is a beautiful story of enduring love and God's working everything for good in our lives when we look to God for the answers. I cried tears of sadness which turned to tears of heartfelt joy. Nolan and Ellie are special friends from an early age. At 15 Nolan asks Ellie if someday she will marry him.. When her family has a quarrel and Ellie's dad whisks her far away and prevents her contact with family or friends her life is changed and she has a child. Nolan works toward his dream of being a successful basketball player but always searching for Ellie. Promises made, before they were seperated, about a time and place to meet someday, works to help them find one another.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Very inspiring book... 11. März 2015
Von MoM0502 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
First off, let me say that this is a fantastic book...very uplifting. The author has a way that really makes you feel
Ellie's sorrow and heartbreak. I do have one complaint though, and it's not really bad, it's just something that a person like me notices. Sometimes author's write about things, people, or places, and don't really do the research on what they talk about. In the book, she refers to Marines at CP as soldiers. Marines are not called soldiers, they are only called Marines. They worked their tails off to earn the right to be called a Marine. This is not a jab at the other branches of the military because they all fight for their country. Again, this has nothing to do with how good the book was. I just prefer it when author's do their research on the subject they talk about.
