Publishers Description
"From #1 "New York Times "bestselling author Karen Kingsbury comes a heartwarming story about childhood friends, broken lives, and a long-ago promise that just might offer the hope of love for today. "
The day before a teenage Ellie moved from Georgia to California, she and her best friend Nolan sat beneath the Spanish moss of an ancient oak tree where they wrote letters to each other and buried them in a rusty old metal box. The plan was to return eleven years later, dig the box up, and read the letters. But now, as that date approaches, much has changed. Ellie has abandoned the faith she grew up with, her days consumed with loving her little girl and trying to make ends meet. Sometimes she watches TV to catch a glimpse of her old friend Nolan, now an NBA star, whose faith is known by the entire nation. But few know that Nolan's own personal tragedies have fueled both his faith and athletic drive. Despite his success, Nolan is isolated and lonely, plagued by a void in his heart that has remained since that night beneath the old oak tree with Ellie. For both Ellie and Nolan, the coming date is more than just a childhood promise. It's the chance to make sense of it all--the chance to find out if it's ever too late to find love again.
Karen Kingsbury weaves a moving tale of heart-wrenching loss, the power of faith, and the wounds that only a forever kind of love can heal. She delves deeply into a theme that resonates within us all: Hope lives for those willing to take a chance.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Chance?

The Chance  Apr 24, 2014
In this wonderful book by Karen Kingsbury we learn about chances, chances at love, forgiveness, and the chance at a relationship with God. Here we meet Ellie Tucker and Nolan Cook who are best friends that always are together until Ellie’s Mom and Dad separate because her mom (Caroline Tucker) has a secret, she had been having an affair and is pregnant, and her dad (Alan Tucker) kicks her mom out and decides to take a job and move him and Ellie to San Diego. Ellie is devasted and runs to Nolan to let him know she is moving, they both are upset, so they both write letters to each other and put them in a tackle box and bury them in their spot at the park and agree that in eleven years they will meet and read the letters.

Years pass and now we find Nolan Cook is a famous basketball player and Ellie Tucker has a daughter and is a hairdresser. She has not spoken to her father in almost 7 years and has not attempted to contact her mother or Nolan, but Nolan is never far from her thoughts and Ellie is never far from Nolan’s thoughts. He misses her like crazy and could never love anyone like he does her.

Ryan who is a guitar player for Peyton Anders the guy who Ellie’s mother had an affair with, searches for Caroline because he wants to see how she is and if she needs anything does he hear her story, how she lost her daughter and how her daughter lost her best friend. Then Ryan meets Nolan at a game where him and his wife bring a dying boy to meet Nolan, there Ryan finds out that Nolan is the friend of Ellie’s that Caroline talked about. Ryan prays for all of them.

Ellie decides to take her daughter and go to Savannah to see her mom when her dad brings her all the letters her mom had ever written to her. But most importantly because the eleven year mark is coming up and she wants to get to the tree before Nolan. But chance would have that her and Nolan would see each other before that day but she shuts him out, and on the morning of June 1st she is leaving to go back to San Diego and feels a pull to stop at the tree, there she finds a surprise, Nolan is there and she wants to run but instead she stays and they read the letters and she realizes that they have been given another chance.

Another chance at love, at happiness, and another chance to let God lead her life, so from that moment on she has the man she loves, a wonderful daughter, her mom and her dad but most importantly she has that relationship with God that she had let go of so many years before.

We all have a chance and we all have been given a chance but what we decide to do with it will determine the outcome of our lives.

I received this book from the publisher through NetGalley.com for my honest review.
 
The Chance great read  Jul 24, 2013

Ellie Tucker learns that her father wants her mother to leave because she's pregnant with the other man's child. She leaves the house in search of her best friend, Nolan Cook who's playing ball at the high school.
Her father tried to stop her by telling her to go to her room and pray to God and that some things just weren't meant for a teen to hear-that she couldn't comprehend it all.. We also learn of the mother's side...
Love the idea of when they said goodbye to one another, their memories will remain, their one last chance...
After she moved she was not able to contact Nolan and they both prayed that it would all work out. He continued concentrating on his basketball games.
Nolan's dad convinced him that with faith you could do anything, even play in the NBA.
He tried many times to find her and had never gotten a letter or another phone call from her since she moved. After he signed with a college basketball team he spent money hiring a PI to find her, who also came up with nothing.
He started dating and he had faith he would find her again. They had that one last chance also if all else failed.
Her life did not go as planned but she made the most of it...
She still planned to be at the park in her old hometown on June 1 so she could dig up the memories they had each left...
She figured Nolan would be too busy to do that.
Love the reference to The Bridge Bookstore in Franklin-awesome book to read about that.
Caroline Tucker's story is also followed as others hope to follow what happened once she left her daughter Ellie and husband Allan to have Peyton Anders baby, by herself. As a country singer Peyton has to do some promo and give back and he selected to help a kids wish to go to a Hawks game, and he can make that happen. Caroline had also written to her daughter every week sending them to her ex mother in law. She never heard back from anybody and she prayed Ellie would get them.
Alan Tucker's story is also followed as he is the guard at a brig on the west coast. He thinks of his daughter also as she's not living there with him any longer and the roads she took...He also thinks he should've stuck with his wife and prayed more to God.
Many scriptures are quoted to help explain the story to the one asking for God's help.
