Alyce Benson has a compassionate heart with an eagerness to do good. So when she pledges three thousand dollars to missionary’s working in Africa she doesn’t think twice. They need the money and her father is rich enough to supply it. What she doesn’t count on is her father’s refusal to have anything to do with the missionaries. Alyce can’t back out of her pledge because the children in Africa need the money. So she decides that she will come up with it herself. The only problem is that other than her love for driving she has nothing she can do to earn three thousand dollars in the seven weeks until the church expects the money. When all hope seems lost to Alyce she finds out about a race in which her father’s company is sponsoring a racecar in. The driver of the car would get paid by Alyce’s father and if the driver wins the race he (or she in Alyce’s case) could win five thousand dollars. With that in mind Alyce goes to her father’s mechanic, Webster, and devises a plan. Everything goes as planned until she realizes she could lose everything including her heart.
At Every Turn by Anne Mateer was a good read. I enjoyed how the story ended but I got bored at some places throughout the story. Other than that it was a fun read that left me satisfied by the end. I would recommend this book to my friends and will defiantly read more books by Anne Mateer.
I got a free review copy of At Every Turn from Bethany House Publishers in return for my honest review.
I give it a 4.5 out 5. As an Afternoon Snack it left me quite full by the time I finished.
