A Chance at Forever (Teaville Moral Society, #3) by Melissa Jagears






Mercy McClain joined the school board to protect the children of Teaville, Kansas, from the bullying she experienced as a child. When the worst offender from her school days applies for a teaching position, she is dead set against it. Yet Aaron Firebrook claims to be a changed man. Can he earn Mercy's trust--and her support for the challenges to come?


About The Author


The purpose of my writing life is to produce God pleasing quality entertainment for myself at minimum. I am commanded in 1 Cor. 10:31 that all I do must glorify God, in Heb. 13:15 that my life should be an outpouring of praise and in Phil. 4:8 to dwell on wholesome thought. My goals for writing are to improve the mind and creativity that God has given me through exercise, to portray Christians in a positive, realistic light to the world if a work is so blessed as to be published, and to write quality fiction. I will only write what I want to read. I will not lay down my “pen” until I can truly say, “I have done my best and have no more.”



My Review

We are in the early 1900’s in Kansas and the author puts faces on bullies, and by doing so we try to understand how someone does what he does. We also see how these bullies respond when God is finally in their lives, and watch transformations, and keep reading as you will be shocked!
This book touches on some tough subjects, alcoholism, prostitution, bullying, and those that judge and don’t live their faith, but wait there are others that seem to be willing to share all that they have to help those less fortunate.
I love that one of the main characters has been born with a disability, and you really never notice it throughout the story. The other main character was abused as a child and took out his frustration and feelings on others, why should they be happy if he wasn’t.
With this complex cast of characters, we are soon caught up in this small town and the drama of one person feeling they are superior to another because of where they are born, and where they were made to live.
I really love the way these people touch the lives of the misfortunate, and in the end, make their own lives better, a don’t miss read!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.
