In The Reluctant Prophet by Nancy Rue, Allison is a middle-aged, single woman who lives in picturesque St. Augustine, Florida, and regularly attends a historic and traditional church near her home.
When she feels a distinct poke in the ribs during a Sunday service, she is convinced that God has “nudged” her to buy a Harley. Still, the call to buy an expensive motorcycle seems bizarre to her. Her income giving carriage rides to tourists is miniscule and riding a motorcycle is far out of her comfort zone.
Then her eccentric carriage horse takes her into a dangerous section of the city and into the lives of individuals who barely manage to stay alive there. The nudges continue. Over the objections of church friends, she winds up at a Harley dealership.
A brand new red Heritage Softail Classic calls to her, and she is soon a Harley owner. She also loses her job, falls out of favor with her longtime neighbors and makes new friends. As she faces threats, she discovers new depths of love for others and learns to trust God for safety, direction, life’s necessities and living life victoriously.
In the weeks between my finishing the book and this review I have forgotten if this was one of the e-books with the aggravating errors grammatical and otherwise. But if there were those errors, they have faded beside my enjoyment of this quick read spiced with humor, heartbreak, a refreshing heroine and interesting characters.
