It’s time for another book review here on It’s Just Life. I am behind on reading this year but never fear – I will catch back up soon to my usual reading rate. It’s just been a busy year so far for me and reading has not been as easy to do.
I was happy to receive an advance reader copy of Second Chances by author Miriam McGuirk. I found out about her from my friend over at JenaBooks and reached out to help be part of the US advance reader team. I tried to read it quickly so that I would be able to post a review for her and am pleased to be able to do a blog post as the publication date arrives.
Miriam is a gifted writer who was born in Dublin and cites her Irish background as an important factor in her storytelling ability. Her writing is fresh and natural and with several books under her belt, she is definitely an author who is making her name abroad and in the US.
Her latest book, Second Chances, is a lovely story about just that – second chances. Miriam’s latest book is a fun read and perhaps this description written by Miriam will tempt you to buy it.
Second Chances is a touching tale that takes us on a journey from India to Kent, UK, following the intertwined lives of the residents who live on the same road.
At the heart of the story is Molly—kind-hearted, resilient, and determined to make a fresh start after her husband Rory leaves her and their son Jamie.
But when Jamie disappears on the day they were supposed to move to Kent, Molly’s new life takes an unexpected turn.
As Molly settles into her new community, she befriends her neighbours, Florence and Colonel Bryce Beckwith, who share their own stories of love, loss, and longing for second chances.
The three of them navigate their regrets and come to realise that it’s never too late to make a change.
Second Chances is a poignant, multigenerational tale of connections and community, showcasing the unbreakable human spirit and the hope that can come from taking a leap of faith.
The book is now available on Amazon here and via a universal link here.
