Years ago, the day before Ellie moved from Georgia to California, she and her best friend Nolan sat beneath an ancient oak tree where they wrote letters to each other and sealed them in a rusty old metal box.

Ellie, bereft of the faith she grew up with, is a single mom living in a tired apartment trying to make ends meet, while Nolan is an NBA star who suffers from loneliness.

What a wonderful book. I loved how God's love, grace and faithfulness was weaved through the story. I also enjoyed how the story flows, nicely written, and how the author develops the characters. Beautiful.

The Chance was beautifully written, true life feelings and emotions, full of bravery and weakness, and a compationate, patient presence of God. A great christian romance!!!!

Karen Kingsbury weaves a story that shows God's hand in the complete restoration of this family that had been severely broken. She shows how God can do anything for us and that our prayers are powerful! She also shows that good things happen in God's timing so we need patience as we go through trials, for He will bring us through to a better life.

Loved this book from start to finish... and was left wanting more. I hope she turns this into a series.

It didn't draw my interest after reading the first few chapters. However I finished it later with a lot of disappointment.

I could guess the ending from very beginning. Hence the talk about god takes so much of it and I skipped all of them. It was annoying. After reading I found it was a great waste of my time. I really have no idea what makes it best selling in new york. I don't like the description the author make in the book. I will for sure not read her book again.

A great book with a bit of religion and hope thrown in - not a bad idea. Very inspirational book. I enjoyed it from start to finish and would recommend it to everyone. I'm hoping to read more of Karen Kingsbury's books. It's always nice to read an inspiration book.
