What does a girl do when life doesn't go according to her plan?
Griffin Walker prefers flying solo-both as an Air Force pilot and in his personal life. But a wrong choice and health problems pulled him out of the cockpit. His attempts to get out of "flying a desk" are complicated by his parents' death-making Griffin the reluctant guardian of his sixteen-year-old brother, Ian. How did his life get so off course? Can God get his life back on track ... or has there been a divine plan all along?My thoughts: She's got a career as a respected pediatric physician in Colorado. Friends. Security. Just no husband. No kids of her own. And that is mostly fine. Then an emergency situation in a restaurant throws new options in her path.
There is teen who has lost Mom and Dad in a terrible accident and now he is living with his much older, single brother. Top it off, the teen was adopted from the foster system when only six years old. But his now guardian-brother is bothered and bewildered by the responsibilities of caring for a child or rather a teen. The emergency restaurant episode is clear evidence of this. As it turns out, the emergency is right up Dr. Kendall's alley - allergies! But the big brother really doesn't want involvement with Dr. Kendall because they seemed to butt heads at every turn. But soon another emergency emerges.
Big brother, the grounded pilot, has a medical issue of his very own. One he hopes will go away on its own but cripples his flying future. The interaction and growth of friendship between Dr. Kendall and Air Force pilot Griffin Walker is riddled with twinkling fun, God's direction in ways they sometimes have trouble following, and attraction to each other that bewilders and annoys.
Throw a bit of suspense and intrigue into the mix and you have a delightful contemporary story that is a good weekend or beach read. Enjoy and then pass it along to a friend.
