Blurb from the back cover:
She’d once loved a bookmobile driver. Memories of that time with him poured in so rapidly she caught her breath. It’d been long ago, but her heart remembered. At first she remembered the love she’d felt back then but the good memories didn’t last long. She’d gone to the bookmobile as usual that last day, but nothing was to be the same again. She went to Brian with love and exciting news. She left alone. Not just without him, but alone in the world and apart from God.
Karen and Brian had been college sweethearts. Karen was sure that Brian would ask her to marry him. Instead, he told her he was going back to California to visit with his parents during the holidays. While there he ran into one of his high school classmates. One thing led to another and they ended up marrying due to a baby being on the way. That sets in motion other events that come to life later in the story. This book is packed with situations that are relevant to most of us today.
I really enjoyed this book! Although I did find, in spots, that it just seemed “too wordy”. I believe Mr. Frost did a really good job in developing his characters. I could see them and feel their emotions, which is the way a book should be. I loved the bookmobile! I grew up in a small town that had a bookmobile that came to the bank parking lot every 2 weeks. That was my favorite place to go on those Saturdays!
Sidney W. Frost is an elder in the Presbyterian Church and a Stephen Minister. While a student at the University of Texas, he worked as a bookmobile driver for the Austin Public Library.
