Publishers Description
In Search of Significance
Thirty-year-old Brandon Jones arrives at his parents' doorstep burned out, jobless, and now fiancee-less. Ellen and Guy can provide a place for him to stay only until he figures out what to do with his life. When he takes a temporary job at a summer camp for disadvantaged kids, Brandon begins a turbulent relationship with a biracial adolescent named Caedmon. Somewhere in the midst of the chaos--caused by Caedmon's disappearance just before a hurricane is predicted to hit Seaport, and by a group of racists who will not stop at arson or murder--Brandon begins to see that the pieces of his life are "not by chance." If he has discovered his life's purpose, can he live it?
""Life is pointless. And if there's a God, He's asleep on the job.""
Brandon Jones didn't know what he expected from the homeless man he met on the way out of town. Certainly not the angry words that haunted him.
But then, "nothing" happened the way he expected. Not his promising career, not his engagement to the "perfect" woman. All his certainty that God had plans for him, that he was meant to do something important--something "significant"--had amounted to a big fat "zero." And now, here he was, thirty years old, no job, no fiancee. Living with his parents.
Maybe the homeless guy was right.
Then again...maybe not. Maybe Brandon has returned to Seaport for a reason. To face down a brewing disaster, steeped in hate crimes and danger. To survive against all odds. To learn, once and for all, that "many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails."
Story Behind the Book
"I am continually blessed by how many readers express their appreciation for the God-given talent that enables me to write novels, but I'm more amazed that so many of them feel as though they haven't been gifted with anything. My goal in writing "Not By Chance" was to show that God's purpose for every life is in place before we are born. Based on Proverbs 19:21, 'Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the L ord's purpose that prevails, ' I sought to create unforgettable characters who challenge each reader's understanding of their purpose in life. Ultimately, I want to point them to the Creator with the Master plan." --Kathy Herman

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not By Chance by Kathy Herman  Mar 17, 2008
This series has been read by all the members of my book club. The characters are very believable usually, and the situations in this book particularly were so very applicable today- maybe in a reverse kind of way in today's political world... thought provoking and convicting. We all loved this book.
 
Non-stop action  Nov 9, 2006
WHAT an ending to this series...may be seen as controversial by some readers. This book will keep you reading all the way to the end - non-stop suspense and action.
 
If you like your suspense on the lighter side  Nov 2, 2006
this book is for you.

When Brandon Jones passes up a regional vice president's promotion, he finds himself at his parents' home in Seaport Florida, unemployed, unengaged, and looking for purpose in his life.

He finds a sympathetic ear in his mom, a woman struggling with her second career choice. His dad is anything but sympathetic. He thinks Brandon is a fool for jettisoning his future to search for a career with significance.

He also finds a sympathetic ear in Weezie Taylor, the assistant manager at Cody's Crab Shack. But there are those in the small town who don't think Weezie, who is black, and Brandon, who is white, should be friends. Racial tensions escalate along with the summer heat as acts of violence rachet up in intensity. An approaching hurricane threatens to halt the investigation before it finds those guilty of murder.
 
This one had some problems...  Sep 21, 2006
While I have loved every series Kathy Herman has written thus far and that includes the previous Seaport novels, this one wasn't as up to par as the others. It wasn't anything to do with the subject. I thought the subject matter was handled with great care, but this book seemed hurried and rushed. I know that writers are on deadlines but the book should never have to suffer because of such. Also, I know I did not have a ARC but my copy had LOTS of errors in it. Again, a sign that this book was rushed into print. Kathy, you can do a lot better. I know this because you've done it in the past. I haven't given up on you completely. Looking forward to the Phantom Hollow series.
 
fabulous Seaport saga  Aug 24, 2006
When Brandon Jones quits his job as regional vice president of Mavis and Stein, a manufacturer of women's clothing, he also loses his fiancée Kelsey who breaks their engagement. He leaves Raleigh and goes to his parents' home in Seaport off the Florida Coast but he doesn't get much sympathy from his father, a very successful lawyer who thinks his son is crazy to have left a job because he didn't find it significant.

Brandon's inner turmoil is reflected in the torment Seaport is experiencing due to an escalating series of racial incidents that leads to seven deaths and rioting. As the police try to find the killers, Brandon takes a job as a camp counselor where he befriends the lonely biracial Caedman Nash. When a hurricane threatens the town most people evacuate but Caedman has gone missing and Brandon is determined to find him.

NOT BY CHANCE is the fourth and last book in the fabulous Seaport saga. The next book talented Kathy Herman writes well be one of the Phantom Hollow series which focuses on Brandon and Kelsey. This book is filled with suspense and the racially motivated crimes with Brandon trying to find himself. Ms. Herman is a brilliant storyteller who readers can always count on for a good yarn.
