Lately my library has been buying more inspirational titles from smaller publishing houses so I’ve been trying to read more of them, and I’m so glad because I probably wouldn’t have picked this up otherwise! (The title and cover are a little kitschy for my taste…) Anyway, don’t let them deter you, Turtles in the Road is charming. Light-hearted, engaging, and hysterically funny!
Sometimes a detour takes you exactly where you need to be.
Piper Cope was so sure the Lord called her to be a pastor’s wife. So when her pastor/fiancé breaks it off, she’s every kind of puzzled. Does God even have a purpose for her anymore? On the road halfway between the bridges she’s burned and some kind of new start, she encounters the most unexpected detour. She swerves on a rainy road to miss a turtle and ends up in a ditch with an airbag to the face. Now stuck in this little town, she wonders how in the world she could’ve gotten her God-signals so very crossed. And how in the world is she supposed to know what He wants her to do now? In the meantime, at least the community center guy, Jay Marler, has her working a temporary job there. Problem is, somehow she’s coaching a children’s basketball team. She does not…basketball. And she certainly does not children.
