About the Book
The inhabitants of Last Chance, New Mexico, could not be more pleased. Dr. Jessica McLeod has opened an office right on Main Street. Andy Ryan, the best athlete the little town ever produced, has ended his short career in the NFL and has come home to coach the mighty Pumas of Last Chance High. Unfortunately, Dr. Jess immediately gets off on the wrong foot when she admits that she's never seen a football game, isn't really interested in doing so, and, in fact, doesn't know a first down from a home run. Meanwhile, Coach Ryan is discovering that it's not easy to balance atop the pedestal the town has put him on. When this unlikely pair is drawn together over the future of a young player--whose gifts may lie in the laboratory rather than on the football field--they begin to wonder if they might have a future together as well.
With the flair that has made her Last Chance books a favorite among readers of contemporary fiction, Cathleen Armstrong draws on the passion Americans have for the traditions of small-town high school football.
About the Author
Cathleen Armstrong lives in Orange County, California, with her husband, Ed, and their corgi. Though she has been in California for many years now, her roots remain deep in New Mexico where she grew up and where much of her family still lives. After she and Ed raised three children, she returned to college and earned a BA in English. Her debut novel, Welcome to Last Chance, won the 2009 American Christian Fiction Writers Genesis Award for Women’s fiction.
Readers will fall in love Cathleen Armstrong’s latest realistic inspirational novel in the A Place to Call Home series. This novel has characters that readers will easily relate to as a town comes together in their love of football. They must also come to accept the new doctor, Dr. Jessica MacLeod, who doesn’t particularly enjoy football, but must come to understand the community’s love of the game. This novel has themes of community involvement, budding relationships, and love. I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoy quick-light contemporary, realistic, inspirational, Christian fiction.
