Wednesday’s Wanderer: A Review of Second Chances Plus Giveaway

Second Chances – I Am Persuaded! – Review by Susan Scott Ferrell

Second ChancesAs a lover of both Sara Price’s Amish fiction and classics of Jane Austen, I was anxiously awaiting the release of the third in Price’s Amish Classic series, Second Chances. After being wooed by First Impressions, then charmed by The Matchmaker, would Price be able to deliver on yet another retelling of an Austen classic (this from Persuasion)? For sure and certain!

Second Chances tells the story of 25-year-old Anna Eicher, who at age 17, under the persuasion of both her close family friend and her father decides to break off her courtship with her love and best friend, Freman Whitmore. Freman leaves Lancaster County distraught. So it is quite a surprise when he returns eight years later…and starts courting someone else! Is it too late? Has a lifetime of persuasion by nearly everyone in Anna’s life left her with any thoughts or beliefs of her own? Read and find out!

I was given Second Chances in exchange for my honest review. This was such a delightful read. I was fully invested in the various storylines. There was more than one occasion that I wanted to reach through the book and SMACK a particular character (you will know who I mean when you read it!) Such a satisfying read. Grab your copy today!

Giveaway time! One copy of Second Chances is up for grabs. To enter leave a comment. For an EXTRA chance share this post and leave a comment if you do. 

Giveaway starts today, Wednesday, June 10th and ends on Wednesday, June 17th.

  1. I would love to win this. I was given a second chance at live when I had Gastric Bypass Surgery 10 1/2 years ago. If I didn’t have the surgery when I did, I wouldn’t be alive today. I wanted to see my grandkids grow up. Well, the fact that my son is in the service and has spent the last 4 years in HI hasn’t helped. But we will get to see them this Christmas. Without my surgery, I wouldn’t have had my second chance.
    I believe in 2nd and 3rd and if need be 4th chances as well. My parents didn’t have 2nd chances to see their kids happily married or to meet their grand kids.

  2. Love Sarah Price’s books. Have never read the Jane Austen’s versions, but would love to read Sarah’s!!

  9. Since discovering Amish books two summers ago, I have been reading a lot more since I am housebound, and Saray Price books is on the list for me to read, I cannot wait to read what her writing style is like, from my friends who have read her books says its something like as if you were inside the story. Those are my kind of books. I hope to win this book, to keep my boredom away. Being deaf its not easy to entertain myself except with TV, which I am bored of. Reading is my best remedy of curing boredom. Thank you for writing Amish books.

  10. Pride and Prejudice is my all-time favorite romance. When I saw your book a couple of weeks ago, i knew I had to read it. Also, a brooding man and lively, sassy girl is one of my favorite formulas for romance novels.

  12. I would love to read my first book by you! Your books sound great, and my favorite genre is Amish fiction.
