‘Two girls, both looking for a Christian marriage … one with a secret, the other with her eyes on the wrong man …’  Teresa

Even as a child, Rachel had her whole life mapped out – study teaching, marry the perfect guy, have some kids and be a stay at home mum. With two different guys after her attention, Rachel must make a choice – will she choose rebellious single dad Nate or sensible youth leader Steven?

Meanwhile, Hannah is on top of the world, engaged to be married to the love of her life, until a chance encounter with someone from her past threatens to take away her happiness. Will her relationship survive when the secret she has been keeping for so many years is uncovered?

As these best friends lean on God and each other through different trials, they both experience God’s forgiveness and his provision of ‘second chances’.

(Parents, please note that this book contains some adult themes that may not be suitable for younger teens. If you are in doubt, please read it yourself first).

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed reading ‘Second Chances’. It had so many Christian themes running through it, such as forgiveness & grace, & it really touched me personally.
    Ali, you write so easily- the words flow well & it isn’t a struggle to try to keep up. Thank you for writing a book that encourages us to always keep trusting in God no matter what is going on in our lives.
    And I loved the fairy-tale ending (who doesn’t??) …I wonder if Steven & Rachel did stay together???

    • Thanks Sharon. I’m so glad you enjoyed it. It brings me great joy to know that I’ve touched people through my writing. I’ll have to give Rachel and Steven a cameo appearance in my next book so you can find out what happens 🙂

  2. I enjoyed your book so much. I am glad that I chose it as my first book to read on my new kindle. It was a perfect reminder of God’s love, grace and forgiveness. I couldn’t put it down; couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next. Thank you and God bless, Becky

    • Thanks Becky. It seems like lots of people got Kindle’s for Christmas as heaps of people have downloaded my book in the last week. I’m so pleased you enjoyed it. I had a lot of fun writing it. Thanks for stopping by and letting me know 🙂

  3. This is a great book it shows how god works through life i think that my friends (even nonchristians) would like this and maybe help them through the time of deciding wether to or not to be christian ill be sure to show them this book

  4. Hi im a 12 yearold girl and i loved Second Chances im now waiting for Trust Me Twice to come out. I showed my pastor this book and he said he love to read it. I cant wait to see what happens with Rachel and Steven.

  5. These were the best two books I have read in a while! I would love it if you kept writing them. I was very disappointed when the series ended though I thoroughly enjoyed them while reading. Best wishes and I hope that you keep writing the series!!!!

    • Thanks Kelly! What a compliment. I do intend to write more books in the series – aiming to publish one more this year. I also have another idea for a one-off novel, which will be fun to write but will involve a lot of research. Thanks for your encouragement, it really spurs me on to keep writing 🙂
