Second Chance

By Eileen Hinkle Rife


A middle-aged woman wants the life back in her marriage.
A teen from the projects just wants a life.

Could they be the answer to each other’s dream?

Mave Robertson, a recent empty nester, wants the fire back in her marriage, but her husband, Jerry, remains aloof. Is he having an affair? Midlife crisis? When a neighbor suggests she “get a life,” Mave accepts the challenge and volunteers at an inner city teen ministry where she is thrown into a culture of drugs, gangs, and unwed teen moms. She soon discovers a friend she can help, but might he also be the cure for both her stale marriage and her crumbling relationship with her father?

A poignant story of middle age, surprising friendships, and unexpected places.

Book Takeaway:

Find a meaningful platform to serve the Lord in the second half of life. Cherish your spouse. Love the "least of these."

Why the author wrote this book:

In part, to work through my own empty nest angst. And to honor and promote Christian inner city teen ministries.
