Never Say Never by Lisa Wingate
An unlikely friendship develops between Donetta Bradford (a grandmotherly, busy-body, hairdresser) and Kai Miller (a twenty-something, wandering, jewelry-making, cruise ship employee) when a hurricane hits the East Texas coast. With the storm bearing down and no other options, they help each other find shelter and weather the storm together. Kai is unable to return home after the storm and stays with Donetta in Daily, Texas. The two become fast friends and help each other find their way through difficult relationships.
The book was a little slow to start but picked up a little ways in. The story is one of friendship and faith in God - even through difficult circumstances. Donetta possesses life experience and a trust in God that Kai learns from and greatly benefits from. The story is encouraging and a good, easy read. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a fun book to read ... great for vacation!
I received this book free of charge from Bethany Publishers in exchange for an honest review of the book.
