Cathleen Armstrong's debut novel, "Welcome to Last Chance," is a touching story that will immerse you in the characters lives and have you wrapped up in the small town drama. Lainie is running, trying to run far away from her old life; however her car does not let her get as far as she was hoping to go. As Lainie waits to hear to news on her car, she finds herself being enveloped by kind people in his little town off the beaten track and cannot believe the kindness she is receiving as it is not what she is used to. Lainie is realizing that it was more than luck for her to end up in this town and that God may really be looking out for her.
This book is the first one in Cathleen's A Place to Call Home series and I am hoping that book 2 will be released soon and will have many of the characters from book 1 returning in it, maybe being Steven's story? This story brings to life small town life - the small town life of everyone knowing each other and everyone else's business, but also everyone being there for each other in times of need. Fayette is an excellent character and mentor to Lainie as well as Elizabeth. These women are such good examples to Lainie and of showing God's love. Ray and Steven have a typical relationship between brothers and both are searching for their niche in the world as Lainie is as well. I highly recommend this book and am looking forward to more books by this author!
