It’s a tad bit bittersweet whenever a series ends. On the one hand, I’ve gotten to know the characters in the books. They’ve become my friends and I enjoy catching up with the others whenever the next release comes out. Yet, I’m also curious and excited to meet the people and see the places authors will take me to next. Melissa Jagears ends her Teaville Moral Society series on a high note.
In My Opinion
A charming picture of how God can grab ahold of a person and change their heart, A Chance at Forever offers hope for anyone how wonders if they can become a better person. And for those who has bared the brunt of hurtful, hateful words.
Melissa Jagears handles a topic as relevant as ever today in a way that is both entertaining and filled with a message that needs to be heard. Words hurt. They last. They shape us. But sometimes, the people behind those words are hurting too.
Faith, forgiveness and…mercy are powerful tools in life. Ones that help us overcome our pasts, our insecurities, or our fears. And the conclusion to the Teaville series does an excellent job of revealing those truths.

About the Book
In early 1900s Kansas, Mercy McClain, determined to protect Teaville’s children from the bullying she experienced as a child, finds fulfillment working at the local orphanage and serving on the school board. When Aaron Firebrook, the classmate who bothered her more than any other, petitions the board for a teaching position, she’s dead set against him getting the job.
Aaron knows he deserves every bit of Mercy’s mistrust, but he’s returned to his hometown a changed man and is seeking to earn forgiveness of those he wronged. He doesn’t expect Mercy to like him, but surely he can prove he now has the best interests of the children at heart.
Will resentment and old wounds hold them back, or can Mercy and Aaron put the past behind them in time to face the unexpected threats to everything they’re working for?
