A Chance at Forever (Teaville Moral Society #3) Reviews
Bullying is a horrible practice that leaves unfathomable consequences, especially in regards to trust and self-acceptance. What can be most heartbreaking is that it may come from those who should be unconditionally at your side.
Mercy McClain knows the many sides of bullying, being from someone close or from another kid. This other was George Firebrook, someone she thought she'd never had to see again and be reminded of all her limitations. But, as I said, bullying isn't just a rebellious child p ...more
This book was so good!!! I could hardly set this novel down because I was seriously invested in the these two main characters.
Mercy had a lot to deal with in her life, from being born with a deformed arm, to being bullied relentlessly as a child, to being treated as a burden by her brother. So when her former bully showed up claiming to have changed, I understood her reluctance to trust. Aaron was also a great character. It was fascinating to see how God had changed his heart, how noble of a man ...more
A Chance at Forever takes an unlikable character and transforms him into a sweetheart of a hero. How many lives could be changed if we would pray for our enemies instead of badmouthing them? Aaron requests mercy from Mercy, who he had tormented during their childhood. It takes a while but she eventually sees that he has indeed become a new man. This book reminds me of how much I’ve changed through the years yet I don’t often give others that benefit of the doubt. This is such an entertaining and ...more
I have been loving this series and I was highly anticipating Mercy's story! This book was phenomenal, I loved every single minute! I already knew that I really liked Mercy, so I was sure that I would love her hero too, there is just something about a hero who is working super hard to be better and overcome his past mistakes, and doesn't feel that he deserves to be loved that never fails to make me swoon, and Aaron was no exception, what a hero, I was totally in love with him from the first chapt ...more
Whew...what a beautifully crafted story! I have a hard time reading Melissa Jagears's books quickly because I just want to soak up all the details. I managed to make this one last a week. Of course, though, I finished the last hundred or so pages in a single night because I simply couldn't stop to put it down.
At the end, I had warm fuzzies and a deep regret over having to say goodbye to these characters. The small-town feel is authentically crafted and made me feel like I could go visit it if I ...more
"A Chance at Forever" is a Christian romance set in 1909 in Kansas. It's the third book in a series. This book wrapped up two side romances that have been building throughout the series, but it still worked fine as a stand-alone novel. Each romance was prevented from moving forward due to events in the past that need to be forgiven.
The main romance was between Mercy and the man who bullied her when they were children. He was abused by someone and in turn bullied others. Now he has returned to ma ...more
GOD CALLS US TO DO HARD THINGS
While the Teaville Moral Society books are part of a series, they will each read very well as a stand-alone. There are some key characters from the other books, but the story will hold its own, and the characters are well defined. The story is packed full of emotions, life lessons, judgment, secrets, compassion, and genuine, unselfish acts of Christianity. While this story is Christian based and does share the love of God, it isn’t preachy, but open and honest in se ...more
I have enjoyed reading all the books in the Teaville Moral Society, but this one is my favorite! This story deals with some heavy topics and situations, but every page points back to Jesus and His love. This is a beautiful story of Faith, Forgiveness, and Love. This story could easily be read as a stand-alone, however, for those who have read the other books, characters from previous stories do make appearances.
From the first chapter to the last I didn't want to put the book down. I felt emotio ...more
