The Outlaw's Second Chance by Angie Dicken impressed this reader with a very well thought-out premise. He attempts to outrun his past, while she try to run towards a future that stemmed from the past. I love how it's a message of seeking their own dreams, not others, but also trying to find their own identity in God's eyes. There's much to say about striving for a dream that God had placed in our hearts, a dream that is solely ours. The message beautifully choregraphed throughout.
Our main characters have that spark that I enjoy in books, and in this novel, their spark also gave their character strength. It contintued to developed through the pages, allowing readers to really get to know them. Yet, I think in many aspects, I wished for a little more about others. Surprising for sure, even for me. I think it's because the author penned quite a solid setting that I wish to know more about others in the area. In all, The Outlaw's Second Chance doesn't need a second chance, it's just right the way it is and readers better grab it the first chance they get.
". . . always admit when I'm wrong. . . it was a safeguard to fewer mistakes in the future."
Disclaimer: I received a digital copy of this book from the author/publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this. This is my honest opinion.
For this type of book, it was fairly well done. A little slow to start for my taste.
What I liked: I liked Aubrey's determination to succeed--she wasn't willing to cheat to get the land she wanted even though she could have, she was willing to work hard as well as to work in an area she was skilled in (sewing) to pursue her dream, she was willing to take care of her brother even though he wasn't the most honest person as well as being the person who endangered her own dreams. I liked Cort's manners--he was willing to work for a woman, he took a murder charge for his brother to try to protect his brother's family, he was willing to help neighbors and to barter for work and goods. I liked that the romance between the two grew slowly as they worked together.
What I didn't like: Too many secrets. Cort shouldn't have taken responsibility for something his brother did--while I can understand Cort's desire to not be executed when he's innocent, he escaped and ran away to hide and keeps looking over his shoulder waiting for the shoe to drop. He wasn't very smart about it and probably should have changed his name if he truly was trying to hide. (It would have been easier to do back then than it is these days.)
As the two learn to work together, they grow closer. But Cort knows his past could catch up with him and force him to leave, and Aubrey refuses to end up depending on a man the way her mother did.
This is a sweet story that features strong Christian characters. It's an entertaining read, but it felt a little drawn out. I found myself skimming through some of the internal thoughts of the characters, as it was usually them reminding themselves why they shouldn't pursue each other. Other than that, it's a good read.
