Welcome to Last Chance: A Novel (A Place to Call Home)

By Cathleen Armstrong


The red warning light on her car dashboard drove Lainie Davis to seek help in the tiny town of Last Chance, New Mexico. But as she encounters the people who make Last Chance their home, it's her heart that is flashing bright red warning lights. These people are entirely too nice, too accommodating, and too interested in her personal life for Lainie's comfort--especially since she's on the run and hoping to slip away unnoticed.Yet in spite of herself, Lainie finds that she is increasingly drawn in to the dramas of small town life. An old church lady who always has room for a stranger. A handsome bartender with a secret life. A single mom running her diner and worrying over her teenage son. Could Lainie actually make a life in this little hick town? Or will the past catch up to her even here in the middle of nowhere?Cathleen Armstrong pens a debut novel filled with complex, lovable characters making their way through life and relationships the best they can. Her evocative descriptions, observational humor, and talent at rendering romantic scenes will earn her many fans.

Book Takeaway:

There's no place so isolated, or distant that God doesn't know who you are and where you are. And he's always ready with another chance.

Why the author wrote this book:

While driving through the Southwestern desert, I saw a little town off the highway in the distance and started wondering about the people who lived there. Why were they there? Why did they stay? And what would happen if a stranger from a big city was, for some reason, stranded there and couldn't leave? Hence, Welcome to Last Chance
