‘Destiny’s Decision’ by Lisa Glenn is a very enjoyable read. What starts out as a story about a single-mother, Destiny, winning millions of dollars soon changes into a fast-paced adventure that shows her that there are things far more important than money.
I really liked Destiny’s character. She’s down on her luck and has been for as long as she can remember. The only good thing in her life is her fourteen year old daughter, Trinity. Even though Destiny works as a stripper, she yearns to set a better example for her daughter. Trinity is a teenager that’s very life-like. She has her conflicts with her mother, just like any teenager, but she still loves her. A pleasant surprise was the character of Destiny’s best friend Jamie Lee.
I started reading this book expecting it to be a story of a single-mother finding true love. Even though Colin came into the story, things changed quite fast after a few chapters. Winning the lottery put Destiny and her child in danger and faced with a hurricane that’s about to hit, you can’t help but feel worried about these characters as they do what they can to survive.
After reading it I found out that the story was more about the importance of family and realizing that God has a plan for everyone. The biggest surprise came in the form of a twist near the end. I was not expecting that! It turned the whole story upside down. The good thing was that Destiny made the decision to take control of her life. I applaud the author because of Destiny’s character development. Whether it was a sign from God or not, seeing Destiny taking the steps for a better future for her and her daughter served as a proper ending to the story.
I give ‘Destiny’s Decision’ by Lisa Glenn 4 out of 5 stars. It’s a very enjoyable book that has a message hidden in it in the form of a love story that’s about family. Give it a read and we’ll talk about it.
