Publisher's Description

From #1 "New York Times" bestselling author Karen Kingsbury comes a heartwarming story about childhood friends, broken lives, and a long ago promise that just might offer the hope of love for today.

Years ago, the day before Ellie moved from Georgia to California, she and her best friend Nolan sat beneath an ancient oak tree, they wrote letters to each other, and sealed them in a rusty old metal box. The plan was to return eleven years later and read them. But now, much has changed. Ellie, bereft of the faith she grew up with, is a single mom trying to make ends meet. Sometimes she watches television to catch a glimpse of her old friend Nolan, now an NBA star, whose terrible personal tragedies fueled his faith and athletic drive in equal measure. But Nolan also suffers from a transcendent loneliness that nothing has ever eased. As Ellie and Nolan move toward the possibility of a reunion at the oak tree, Kingsbury weaves a tale of loss, the power of faith, and the wounds that only love can heal, showing that it's never too late for those willing to take a chance.

    I just started reading Karen Kingsbury's book in 2013 and have grown to appreciate her writing. In The Chance, she tells a story about two best friends who are about to be separated by a continent, and make a promise to meet in 11 years. They lose contact but never forget. Kingsbury weaves the thread of prayer and turning to God throughout the story and it's the power of prayer that brings several broken people back together in a divinely-planned set of circumstances.

    As always Karen Kingsbury did a excellent job. Her books are easy to read and they keep your interest so you want to keep reading. She has a story line that is down to earth and shows the human factor of life. I think I had read all of her books and can't wait for more.

    I love how Karen Kingsbury uses the scriptures in her story content. It is so down to earth and can apply to so many life situations. The books are the kind that you have a hard time putting down.

    The Chance is one of the best books written by Karen Kingsbury that I've read in one setting. Just could not put the book down. It was so loving, so heartfelt, just such a good book. Knowing they loved each other for all that time, and when the 11yrs came due, they didn't forget. Oh, so very touching. I love these kind of books and only Karen can write them....thank you Karen.....
