Different from any christian fiction book I've ever read before, but definitely good. It doesn't particularly "read" like a christian book. Crazy things happen to the main characters and seem quite unbelievable, but the way they think and act is very believable.

Two people accidentally end up needing to ride/drive together across the U.S. for two very different reasons. They are complete opposites and definitely don't feel "sparks", unless one means the antagonistic type. :-) The book brings out how each character learns more about themselves and the choices they make throughout, good and bad, are very real. This was a thought-provoking book and I kept reading partly because it is so very different. I wanted to know what would happen and how it would end. :-)

From the back cover: "'How far are you going?' she asked him.
Instantly his face became a mask of apprehension. 'Oh, no you don't. Get that notion out of your head right now. I travel alone.'
Traveling with him had been the farthest thing from her mind until he said it; then, suddenly, the thought didn't sound that bad.

Their dogs took to each other right away. Too bad Nancy Bernard and Mark Brewster can't say the same for each other, because they need to work together to get across the country.
Mark's a juggler and a free spirit who wants to sell his first screenplay. Nancy's an earnest new Christian on a personal mission. Headed for California, they meet each other en route, in a frightening little town where they both run into misfortune. Although they take an instant dislike to each other, they decide to team up, since Mark has a car and Nancy has some money.
Mark's ancient Pacer takes them through unexpected, sometimes delightful, and often bizarre encounters on the road west - meetings with a gun runner, a motorcycle gang, a Native American artist, and a thief or two. But the most unexpected encounter Mark and Nancy have is with each other.
Driving Lessons is a wise, witty, and inspirational story of a journey into self-discovery, the surprises of life, and the mysteries of God's ways." 282 pages, 29 chapters.

You'll even love the dedication - it's hilarious.
