I check out “Kelly’s Chance” at my local library. I have read several books by Wanda Brunstetter but mostly Amish books. This books is short at just over two-hundred pages. The story is et around the Leigh Canal during the late 1800s. A young woman named Kelly McGregor is helping her family by driving her father’s mules as they pull the loads of coal to the city. There is no love in her parents’ marriage, and she is determined never to get married.

Kelly is saving her money so she can make her dream of becoming an artist come true. A shopkeeper, Mike Cooper, has a crush on Kelly. He offers to hang up some of her drawings in his store. The story gets a little predictable here, as of course, Kelly starts to have feelings for Mike.

Despite the cliché formula that most Christian romance writers use, “Kelly’s Chance” is a sweet, likeable tale.
