I've been blessed with having some really good books to read lately. Never Say Never falls right into this category! Here's a bit about this book:
Kai Miller floats through life like driftwood tossed by waves. She's never put down roots in any one place--and she doesn't plan to. But when a chaotic hurricane evacuation lands her in Daily, Texas, she begins to think twice about her wayfaring existence. And when she meets hometown-boy Kemp Eldridge, she can almost picture settling down in Daily--until she discovers he may be promised to someone else. Daily has always been a place of refuge for those the wind blows in, but for Kai, it looks like it will be just another place to leave behind. Then again, Daily always has a few surprises in store--especially when Aunt Donetta has cooked up a scheme.

About the Author:Lisa Wingate is a popular inspirational speaker, magazine columnist, and national bestselling author of several books, including Tending Roses, Talk of the Town, Drenched in Light, A Thousand Voices, and A Month of Summer. Her work was recently honored by the Americans for More Civility for promoting greater kindness and civility in American life. Lisa and her family live in central Texas.

My findings: This story is engaging and a great read! Kai Miller was one of my favorite characters but my most favorite were the three older ladies: Donetta, Imagene and Lucy. They are spunky, feisty and I hope that when I'm their age, I'll be just like them! :)
Thanks so much to Kathy Carlton Willis Communications (KCWC) for the opportunity to review this book!
