I just finished reading “Hatteras Girl”, by Alice J. Wisler, and I’m eager to read the rest of her literary works! Jackie Donovan is definitely a character you can relate to in one way or another. In fact, I’m not sure if it’s her personality, her strong hope and motivation that helps her through some tough times that are thrown her way, or her ability to be honorable and caring towards her friends and family at all times no matter how annoying or how emotional a situation they might be faced with, that I enjoy the most about her.
Book Review: Hatteras Girl
An interviewer and writer for a local magazine in the Outer Banks region of North Carolina, Jackie is a 29-year-old dreamer who would love more than anything for God to answer 2 of her most desired prayers: a man who will be everything she is looking for, and to be the owner of her childhood dream house — The Bailey House Bed and Breakfast that has now fallen into disrepair. As the story unfolds and the plot seems to take the course that Jackie prays for every day, we all learn (along with Jackie) that even though things may seem to be the path God wants us to take, nothing happens without patience or happens exactly the way we think it should. Sometimes God has other plans for us and they will become revealed in God’s time.
A great story with a story line that keeps you intrigued and captivated at all times. I couldn’t pu
t it down! Plus, I love all of the characters, and the way they all tie in to God’s plan for Jackie makes them even more enoyable no matter what role they take or end up taking as the story draws to a close. I highly recommend it to anyone who reads contemporary fiction whether they are a Christian or not.
