At Home in Last Chance

At Home in Last Chance
A Place to Call Home Book 3
Cathleen Armstrong
Kaitlyn made a horrible mistake six months ago. She left her seven year old daughter with her brother and took off. But now she's back and trying to rectify her mistakes. It isn't easy and she constantly feels the guilt, not only from herself, but from the townspeople. Steven is dealing with some of the same issues himself. Their relatives warn them about each other. But these two prodigals must learn to have faith and trust before they can settle in Last Chance, New Mexico.

The style of writing feels a lot like a young adult book. The author deals with the issues of learning from mistakes and moving past the prejudices of others. I was unaware that this book was in a series when I picked it up. It can be read as a stand alone, but there are definitely pieces that would fit better if the first two books had been read. The book ends rather abruptly. I'm not sure if this is because it's part of a series and the loose ends will be tied up in the next book, or if that is simply the style of writing. The characters are authentic and the descriptions are vibrant. It was an interesting read.

I received this book free of charge from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.
