Review: Emily’s Chance by Sharon Gillenwater

Emily's Chance, Sharon Gillenwater, 978-0-8007-3354-4

When a disastrous fire destroyed most of the countryside around Callahan Crossing as well as the small town museum Emily was restoring, it seemed as though she would soon go back to the city.  Chance Callahan, cowboy, contractor, and now also fire-cleanup volunteer, was determined to make the young museum curator stay.  “She’s the one,” he told his family, and especially his brother, staking a claim.  How these two dedicated young people worked together, both on the museum and on their own futures, makes a riveting tale.

This novel, full of family love and dysfunctions, surprised me.  I had expected it to be fluffy little romance but instead I discovered a well-crafted story with believable characters and serious themes.  Both Emily and Chance grew spiritually in the story, confronting illusions about themselves as well as others. 

Miss 17 and I both really enjoyed this second volume in the The Callahans of Texas series.  In fact we’ve ordered the first book from the library and are looking forward to volume three.
