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.
What made the experience of listening to On the Divinity of Second Chances the most enjoyable?

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

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?
