Driver Confessional - Driver Series 1 - by David L. Winters
Ride share driver Antonio cruises the streets of Washington, D.C. looking for his next fare.
has an unusual gift for relaxing his customers and stimulating their
desire to reveal more than they planned. By the completion of their
ride, many feel so comfortable that they confess their sins great and
small. Antonio's faith guides his discussions and points him in new
directions. Suddenly, his peaceful world is turned upside down by a
mysterious business woman. As she heads to a midnight rendezvous, she
confesses more than Antonio can handle. Her story sends him into a world
of espionage, international terrorism and danger.
This was an interesting book with a unique plot. A lot of the story centers around Antonio and the fares he drives around. I really liked how Antonio would pray for his clients and sometimes had spiritual conversations with them or prayed with them. It really showed how much of a difference one person could make who took the time to really talk to someone. There was also a great conversation Antonio's wife Sylvia had with her best friend about some secrets from her past and how God would forgive her for her sins. I liked that the gospel message was clearly spelled out. There's quite a bit of action in the story, from car chases to shooting to kidnapping. There's a little romance, too. Sometimes, there was a line that seemed a bit odd, such as when a big Russian guy "giggled" and I got a little bored with the detail about which roads he was taking, but it wasn't constant. Overall, if you like books with action and a strong spiritual message, you might want to check this one out.
I received this book from Litfuse Publicity free in exchange for an honest review.
