Review: Destiny's Second Chance - Kate Vale

Destiny's Second Chance

Review: Destiny's Second Chance - Kate Vale - October 2015
When Isabella aka Bella Campbell was sixteen years old, she fell pregnant and didn't tell her family till she was five months along. At sixteen, she was given one option - to give up her baby for adoption or to be kicked out of home. At three days old, Bella gave her baby Destiny over to an older couple "The Harris's". The adoption was to be a semi-open adoption where they could send letters and in return Bella would recieve photos but that stopped when Destiny turned five and Bella's letters were sent back with a return to sender.  Not a day has gone by that Bella hasn't thought of her daughter and now twenty one years later, Bella now a librarian at Evergreen Library has recieved a letter from her Daughter's adopted Dad giving her permission to contact Destiny.  Bella does and soon a relationship evolves with Bella and Destiny, though it seems Mrs. Harris isn't very happy about it and still sees Bella as the girl who gave up her baby and got pregnant as a teen.  Is life giving both Destiny and Bella a second chance at getting to know one another ? What I loved about this book was that Bella and Destiny had lots in common and that Bella didn't want to tear the Harris's away but she did want to get to know her daughter.  Also it seems that this might be Bella's second chance as well at a family with not only her daughter coming back but Henry's grandson Gavin seems to be interested in Bella and wants to take things a little further in the relationship status. For a lovely family saga and a book where second chances are all around us and it shows readers that sometimes in life - second chances are what we need to be happy as things don't always go right the first time around.
