Last Chance is one of those places that becomes easily home. The people are filled with love, compassion, and grace. When a newcomer enters they are welcomed just as Christ welcomes us. No questions, just come on in and let's get to one one another.
I'm kind of sad to see the people of Last Chance go, but they won't be far from memory. Cathleen has given a wonderful final goodbye by leaving the reader feeling complete and knowing that everyone we have met in Last Chance is doing just fine. All they needed was a chance.
If your just seeing At Home In Last Chance again for the first time I suggest that you go back and read Welcome To Last Chance and One More Last Chance. (You can take a peek at my reviews). Yes, you could read this as a stand alone, but you're going to be missing out on a huge part of just where these characters have come from.
The characters are easy to relate to. Cathleen gives the reader a beautiful portrait of Last Chance and the people who live there. Her writing style is easy and flows with a continued grace of the pen. Her heart is within these pages as we see her passion for reaching out to others and making a difference in their lives.
Once again I was hooked with these characters. Kaitlyn and Steven just need a chance. They are trying to find themselves and understand who they are deep inside. Sometimes this world is just a hard place and we need a few encouragers to help guide the way. A sweet romance, mixed with faith, love and a renewed hope.
This was a delightful series from beginning to end. I can't wait to see what's next for Cathleen Armstrong.
