Fade to Blue, by Julie Carobini, is a wonderful story about second chances. A second chance to make things right. A second chance to find your heart's desire. A second chance to find beauty in rubbish.

Suz Mitchell and her young son move cross country for a new start. Except her past seems to have followed her. Suz gets a job restoring art at the famous Hearst Castle on California's central coast. She soon runs into Seth, her first love from back home. Then she hears from her ex-husband who is eager for his own second chance with his family.

Suz's dilemma about which second chance is from God and which is an illusion is real and nicely handled. Just like Suz, all of us have been conflicted about a decision. Suz's emotions and feelings are very real and believable.

Julie Carobini does a great job bringing Suz, her son Jeremiah, Seth, and the other characters of Fade to Blue come to life. I loved the insider's look at Hearst Castle, a place I've visited.

I loved this book and highly recommend it.
