    Meet The Characters:

    Kirstie Donovan: Kirtsie tries her utmost to be a "dutiful" pastor's wife but feels weighted down with
    issues of family and church life. She has three sons, Timmy the oldest is Autistic, Patrick and Daniel and between raising them and dealing
    with the
    complaints of some church members, her life is a struggle.

    Aaron Donovan: Aaron is Kirstie's husband and the pastor of Eel
    Falls First
    Independent Christian Community Church. In the beginning Aaron is very timid and quit but he eventually takes charge. He loves his
    wife and family
    very much and embraces Kirstie and her dream, supporting her to the fullest.

    Timmy Donovan: Timmy is Aaron and
    Kirstie's Autistic son. He
    is 17 years-old and ADORABLE. His character was captured so realistically. It was a great moment when he got excited
    over the smallest of things.
    Everyone loved Timmy and I just wanted to hug him.

    Reba O'Malley: What a character! Reba is very
    outspoken and outrageous. She is a true
    "biker chick" and embraces Kirstie's desire to learn to ride. She is a loyal and faithful
    friend, always coming in a time of need.

    My Thoughts:

    Kirstie Donovan, pastor Aaron's wife, had all she needed. Or so she
    thought. Her husband pastored the local church, she had
    a loving family and loyal friends. But her oldest son Timmy is Autistic and taking care
    of him becomes a daily struggle. Her 15 year-old son, Patrick,
    starts rebelling by staying out late and drinking. Bernice, a church member, is
    always complaining about church matters. Kirstie realizes she isn't
    content. She needs an outlet to break the monotiny. Her Aunt Mary used to
    ride a bike and left Kirstie an inheritance to use on her and her alone.
    Kirstie's one desire is to ride a bike like she did with her Aunt Mary
    when she was a kid. And that's exactly what she does. With her friends Reba,
    Opal and Lily forming a biker group called "The Lady
    Eels", and Aaron backing her, Kirstie put her dream in motion.

    I LOVED this
    book! It had several "Favorite Scenes" to
    choose from, some very funny ones, but I chose to use one that showed what the word
    "LOVE" really means. To see these big, tough
    bikers cheering on a child with down syndrome really made my heart swell. Karla Akins managed
    to touch every emotion. One minute I was laughing
    and the next I was crying. There was the right amount of spiritual overtones so that I didn't feel
    like I was reading a Bible study lesson, but
    a warm, funny, emtional story of coming together. There was even a little mystery included to round out
    the mix. Her characters were spot-on.
    Reba was a real hoot and Opal and Atticus were just simply adorable. The real kicker, though, was Timmy's
    character. Timmy has Autism and she
    portrayed him bueautifully. I wanted to reach out and wrap him in a warm hug. Karla Akins has a real winner in The
    Pastor's Wife Wear Biker
