New Chance

By Kelsey Gallant


It’s been two years since Lauren Bradka had her heart broken by the man she always thought she’d marry, and she’s starting to lose hope of ever having the family she so desperately craves. When unforeseen circumstances lead Lauren to a completely new career, she can’t help feeling excited about the possibilities, despite the challenges she faces from the very start.

Nineteen-year-old Aleah Matthews is living a full life, taking care of her two toddlers while also balancing church, work, and college. When her peer mentor, Bobby, starts showing interest in her, Aleah can’t help feeling something in return. But flashbacks from her broken past still haunt her, reminding her to keep her distance.

Bobby is determined to break through Aleah’s walls and get to her heart. Aleah is terrified of letting him get too close. Meanwhile, everything is finally falling into place for Lauren—until a challenge to her beliefs faces her with a choice that could cause her to lose everything.

As Lauren, Aleah, and Bobby each find their faith being tested in new ways, they need to decide whether to let the past take control, or to treat each day as a new chance.

Book Takeaway:

Your past does not define who you are today. Every day is a new opportunity. God's plans are always better than your own. God works all things out for the good of those who love Him.

Why the author wrote this book:

This book is the second in my New Life series. It has always been my intention for the New Life series to eventually contain four books, each of which continues the story of Aleah Matthews and those around her. New Chance in particular is a story that deals with letting go of the past, submitting to God's will, and forming new relationships despite challenges and fear.
