What would you do if you suddenly found yourself with several million dollars? Would you spend it? Would you give it back? This is exactly the position Cassia has found herself in...and she has no idea what to do. Her neighbor, Adam Cavanaugh, who is a jounalist for human rights, befriends her and finds in Cassia a reprieve from his most recent assignment...the death of children in Burundi. He starts out writing about Cassia in hopes of using his proceeds to help the children, but doesn't feel right doing it behind her back--regardless of the reason. He also doesn't expect to fall in love with Cassia in the process.
Cassia, on the otehr hand is working on her own feelings: about the money, about the men in her life, about evertyhing. What should she do with any of it? She keeps trying to give it to God, but keeps taking it back away from Him! Then she finds out the truth about Adam and she just gets even more confused.
Suddenly it all comes into focus and Cassia realizes what she must do: with the money and with the men!
In the words of Randy Jackson, judge on American Idol, "It's not good, dawg." I just could not get into this storyline and had to force myself to finish it. I found Cassia, the main character, whiny and annoying. She wins the lottery accidentally and is mortified that she got money from "gambling." I would have rather seen her have a little fun spending some of it than whining about it the whole time.
I am a big chick-lit fan and do read and enjoy the occasional Christian chick-lit, but this had way too many Bible verses, etc., in it for me. The religion part was way overdone. Just not a good read for me!
