A Question of Destiny is a great story! It is a contemporary novel about a young woman who is rewarded generously for an act of heroism. It is full of interesting characters and brings up very valid questions about how wealth affects those who have it.
I really liked Lucy and Andy. They both have some very painful issues from their past that affect the way they deal with people and situations. Watching both of them grow was enjoyable in this story. They were definitely imperfect people trying their best to follow what God had in store for them.
This book flowed very nicely and kept my interest from start to finish. The back story regarding the divorce of Lucy’s mom and dad addressed some deep issues and I was glad to see how things progressed with them. Definitely an enjoyable story with Anita Higman’s trademark humor flowing gently through it. (5 stars)
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.
Another great thing about this book is the price! It is a full-length novel and is only $0.99 on Kindle!
