Beyond Second Chances
A woman who knows grief and loss after the death of her second husband, is jilted just before an ill-advised remarriage, yet retains her trust in a loving God. Shirley Quiring Mozena leans on her relationship with her faithful God while experiencing the pangs of loneliness and regret. Weaving in her family’s backstory, she tells of a shy pastor’s daughter who through dramatic life experiences learned a deep trust in God’s faithfulness in all circumstances. When a new man in her life appears, can Shirley trust his love? One woman’s story of love triumphing over loss will strengthen and inspire.
My thoughts: After reading Shirley's first book of love and loss, I was interested in picking this one up to see where life took her. I would of had a hard time opening myself up to love again after losing two husbands, but Shirley is brave in allowing herself to love again and keeping her heart open. I enjoyed reading her story of overcoming a canceled wedding and finding love again. This book gives hope to those who have lost a spouse.
I received this book from Celebrate Lit. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.

More from Shirley
Can you find love again on a couples matching site? Yes. And no. In my first book, Second Chances, I share how I found love and married second time on a matching site. Seventeen months after our marriage, my husband died. I didn’t think I’d ever love again, but after time, explored the same website only to be crushed with disappointment. My dreams were destroyed. As a result, I learned to fully surrender to God and be contented in whatever state I was in—married or single. This book continues my story and ends in joy! Find out what happens in this second book. God blesses us Beyond Second Chances. Read my story and be encouraged.
