At Every Turn
At Every Turn by Anne Mateer
She's off to the races!
Caught up in a whirlwind of religious enthusiasm, Alyce Benson impetuously pledges three thousand dollars to mission work in Africa. Now she just has to find a way to get the money.
Alyce harbors a secret passion for speed and automobiles, and she's spent many an afternoon driving around the rustic track in the field behind her home. When she discovers that her father's company has sponsored a racing car that will compete in several upcoming events--races in which the driver will be paid and could win as much as five thousand dollars in prize money--she conspires with her father's mechanic, Webster, to train and compete.
But when her friends cast aspersions on Webster's past, she realizes she may have trusted the wrong person with her secret. Will Alyce come up with the money in time, or will she have to choose between her hasty promise and the man who holds a piece of her heart?
Historical Christian Fiction will always be my favorite genre. I start to think YA is my favorite, and then I read a Christian Fiction book, preferably historical, and I know I was wrong. This book was no exception.
Alyce was so brave and so passionate about the things that she loved. Nothing was going to get in her way. I love that she is such a strong woman. That was particularly hard back then, but she did not let that stop her either. She was going to do what she wanted, even if no one else would help her.
Webster was the one person that Alyce would share things with. I loved Webster. He was so sweet, and from the beginning you could tell he really cared for her. It was upsetting when Alyce and others would question him. I knew he was the good guy!! There was a little bit of mystery in this book as well as the sweet romance. It definitely kept it exciting. I thoroughly enjoyed every part of this book, and would definitely recommend it.
I received this book for free in return for an honest review.
