A light, but thought-provoking, read -- A Question of Destiny

Whenever I write a review of a book by Anita Higman, I usually use two words:  fun and quirky.  And those two words once again fit her latest (available only in ebook form) -- A Question of Destiny.

Lucy O'Brien, Andrew Whitfield, and multi-millionaire Ian Chalmers are all fun characters with their own individual quirks.  The premise around which the whole story is based was a fun one to ponder as I read:  How would my life change if I suddenly was handed ten million dollars with very few conditions put on how I used it?  Watching Lucy deal with the benefits and challenges of the sudden changes in her lifestyle kept me engaged in the story.  The various characters in her life -- both old and new connections -- and the different ways they reacted to her wealth made for a very entertaining story.

I would recommend A Question of Destiny to anyone looking for a quick, fairly light read with some important principles woven in -- things like discovering what is most important in your life. 

Thanks to Anita for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

About the book:

Lucy O'Brien is about to be given ten millions dollars and a chance to live a life she never imagined. Will this newfound wealth be Lucy's undoing, or can she rise above the temptations within high society and choose to become a nobler version of herself? And will the solitary Andrew Whitfield—a man who watches over Lucy as she adapts to her new lifestyle—cause her to close the door on her dreams or be the key that opens the rest of Lucy's destiny?
