A broken family finds its way back together in this captivating story from the author of Church of the Dog. A charismatic author with a voice and message all her own, Kaya McLaren has become beloved in the book world as much for her upbeat energy as for her rich storytelling. In On the Divinity of Second Chances, she portrays a family on the brink of dissolution—a mother besieged by middle age, a distant father lost in daily life, and their three teenage children struggling in various ways with the family’s disintegration even as they conceal a secret that could send their parents further over the edge. With the help of a group of tap-dancing old ladies, a sensual tango teacher, and a lot of luck, this family is about to learn that everyone gets a second chance which, as McLaren beautifully reminds us in this inspiring novel, is sometimes even better than the first.

    " While I strongly disagree with some of the beliefs presented (reincarnation, specifically), as a literary device they work with the theme; overall, I enjoyed the book. "

    " This book was totally amazing. I just fell in love with all the characters in this book and I wish I could read more about this wonderful family. I hated to see this book end. I really liked the style in which this author writes, each chapter about a different character, in the first person. You really get a feel for each person in this family and what they are going through and what each person's thoughts and feeling are. A book I won't soon forget. Two thumbs up!!!!!! "
