Book Review: At Every Turn by Anne Mateer

Alyce Benson, the daughter of a wealthy man, decides to give three-thousand dollars to the missionaries who came to her church. Thinking she can just use her father’s money, she is dashed when he refuses to give his money towards any Christian cause.  Although she manages to earn some money through donations and by other means, she cannot seem to keep it. Anytime she sees someone in need, she continues to give the money away. Believing the only way she can receive the money is through racing, she has her father’s mechanic, Webster, help her to train secretly. Will she be able to earn enough money for her cause?
I liked:

  • The cover. I know I sound like a broken record sometimes, but I really loved the cover. I do judge books by their cover, and this one had a beautiful cover.
  • Alyce. Though na├»ve, as well as impulsive, I grew to like her compassionate personality.
  • I loved the chivalrous way Webster carried himself.
  • The description. The author did a great job with this one. Absolutely vivid descriptions throughout the book. Well done Ann!

I disliked:

  • The predictability. Although not entirely predictable, this book’s main plot was somewhat easy to guess.

Overall, this was a very cute book, and one that would be a great gift for any automobile lover you know!
Bethany House Publishers gave me this book in exchange for an honest review.
