One Last Chance

"One Last Chance," is a depression era tale that captures the time with remarkable clarity. It is the story of Artie's coming of age, a boy on the outs who when offered a chance at a new life makes the best of it. The story is both suspenseful and sweet. The author does a good job of bringing his characters to life, particularly the relationship between Artie and Ray. What made the story for me was the way the history of a remarkable automobile, the Dusenberg, was used both as a historical backdrop for the story, and as a symbol for new beginnings.

note: The book is written by my good friend and cousin Jerry Borrowman. This is my favorite of his books to date. I say that because it's true and it will undoubtedly get me a free copy of his next book.
