Overview

Popular fiction author Sally John’s first series The Other Way Home (more than 65,000 copies sold) comes to life with a fresh, new cover for a new audience of readers.

In A Journey by Chance, the first book of the series, Dr. Gina Philips heads from Southern California to the tiny Midwest town of Valley Oaks for her cousin’s wedding. Her plan to heal from a failed relationship and escape from a lost job is interrupted by the persistent attention of a local, Brady, and the quirkiness of small town America.

But just when Gina thinks she has the town figured out, a secret is revealed that will forever change her family and her relationship to the mysterious Brady.

This novel of romance and healing turns first impressions on end as Gina finds inspiration in the faith of others and joy in her own growing relationship with the Lord.

This book helped me to see into my past and I realized that there were those who I needed to forgive even though I had no idea. This was a truly wonderful book with Christian insights that helped me to understand that we don't deserve God's love or forgiveness but he gave it to us through Jesus.

This is the first of book in The Other Way Home series. This story is about faith, love, and heartbreak-healing.

Valley Oaks is a small town in 1947. Of course, in a small town every knows what everyone else is doing. Dr Gina Philips arrives in Valley Oaks from Southern California for a cousin's wedding and plans with her mother to stay 4 weeks. Plans change when you fall in love. Brady Olafsson fights his feelings for Gina, but God has plans for these two.

When I first got this book I thought 'oh, yeah, another Christian romance book. It will be just like all the other ones but at least it will be somthing to read' WRONG! It was realistic and I just fell in love with all the people in the book. It also was awesome because not all of the people in it were 'perfact' like they are in alot of other books. I would highly recamend this book to any girl.
