The Second Chance Farm by Janice Blanchett is a heartwarming story of how a rescued goat helps a wandering stranger realize everyone deserves a second chance.
A farmer finds a lost goat and brings him back to his farm. Christening him Rusty, the goat grows up alongside the other farm animals. Then one day, Rusty notices how different he is from the others and thinks he should walk away from the only home he has ever known. The lessons Rusty learns about family and forgiveness help him when a wandering stranger arrives at the farm looking for work.
What a unique way to approach the parable of “The Prodigal Son.” Instead of the son being the main character, Blanchett creates a touching story of a rescued goat helping the son who took his part of the family fortune and wasted it. This story is beautifully told and is accompanied by the creative artwork of Jack Foster (one of my favorites). The author then suggests the reader discover the rest of the wandering stranger’s story in the Gospel of Luke.
The Second Chance Farm will make a great addition to church and home libraries.
