    Highly Recommended

    Not Amish, but so very entertaining. I listen to books as I drive my 45 min to work, and this has been so entertaining. If you want stories that are true to the heart, loving, caring nd ways to deal with the sometimes not so kind people in the world, this is the story for you. I have read many of the Amish stories Ms. Brunstetter has written and even though I love the Amish stories, this was is rated 4 star because it deserves it. this would be a wonderful book club edition.....so much discussion could be had. Enjoy...............

    A true and unconditional love is portrayed in this book!

    Love is patient love is kind! How true this is shown in the character of Mike Cooper. Kelly has witnessed spouse abuse in her early years of growing up. Its no wonder she had a wall built up. Her dreams of having an art gallery are all she needs to complete her life! But God used Mike to show her that marriage and love doesnt have to include.

    To me this is a terrific romance for a younger reader.

    I really enjoyed this book. It was set in the Lehigh Canal and I learned much about a life I didn't even think about before. It is shocking to me how they lived and the work that people endured. (That some still endure.)

    I really liked the characters - well, the ones we were supposed to like - and felt that their story was very sweet and romantic. One who hopes to get married and is waiting for God to show her the path she should take - or the patience she should be utilizing!

    A Chance Worth Taking

    When I think of Wanda Brunstetter, I think Amish novels. But this one is not Amish, and even though I love the Amish novels that Wanda writes, this one was excellent! It is a wonderful historical novel about life in Pennsylvania and the struggles with living on the canal in the 1890's.

    It is a relaxing and enjoyable story and I didn't want to put the book down. Reading the story of Kelly and her will-power to leave the poor and difficult childhood she had behind and of the man who falls in love with her and tries teaching her about truly relying on God's will, really moved me.I was routing for Kelly through the whole book and praying she would find God's will for her life and truly lean on Him. Though I wouldn't trade my the life I live now for anything, there are times when I read one of Wanda Brunstetter's books and how she packs them full of history, love and God, makes me wish I was living the life of one of her characters! She really drew me in and captured my heart with this book, and I can't wait to read book 2 in the LeHigh Canal series, Besty's Return, and it makes Kelly's Chance one that I would highly recommend for an easy, fast read! Five stars and two thumbs up for a magnificent job!
