Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Great book full of wonderful insights!"
    What made the experience of listening to On the Divinity of Second Chances the most enjoyable?

    The different voices for different characters was amazing! Plus Kaya's way of presenting different character flaws and strengths makes the whole book such a great reading experience.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jade, I feel like she is the me that gets bottled up and put aside in my life.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All the scenes on the South Dakota farm.


    If you could take any character from On the Divinity of Second Chances out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Olive, she reminds me most of me.


    Any additional comments?

    Kaya is a great author and I can't wait to read (or listen) the next book!
