From the coastal towns of Warner Beach in Natal to Gordons Bay in the Western Cape during the seventies Kaye Reid travels hoping to eventually find forgiveness and a new life.

Through new acquaintances Kaye finds God and realises that she has to rely heavily on Him to bring her through the difficult roads she must travel.

This book was a real treat for me to read I know it sounds a bit farfetched to say that a fiction book can transform you from within but honestly this book did just that - It really touched me so hard … you know the feeling when a preacher preaches and it feels like he is preaching directly at you when you leave you think “Wow that sermon was meant for me” …. YUP that’s exactly how I thought with book … it pricked my heart so deeply and for that Aileen I thank you … I thank God for you.
The story without giving too much away is centred on Kaye – whose life takes unexpected twists and turns ups and downs like a roller coaster ride ….. Testing and questioning her faith in every direction ……
Aileen has a way of putting you right in those pages – right there with the characters making you feel their pain, their happiness, as Kaye is wiping that ash off herself you feel it on yourself too - you laugh with her, you cry with her and you feel yourself learning the same lessons she is learning - what a beautiful story this was.
Written in simple English it’s such an easy enjoyable read …. Totally unputdownable.

"Unforgiveness is a killer! You cannot truly serve God if there is an unforgiveness in your heart.
What does it help you if you live with bitterness and resentment toward someone?
you are the only one who suffers.
You cannot have a heart filled with happiness and at the same time have that same heart filled with unforgiveness.
When you truly forgive, your heart will find a joy indescribable.
God will carry your burdens and He will admonih and pass judgement on your adversaries.
God forgave you, so who are you not to forgive others?" - Aileen Friedman, Second is Best.
Every once in a while you get a message, that relates to you in every possible way. Thank you Angie Wide Eybers, for the book. Yes, i finished it in under 3 hours, because it was the perfect book. I cannot express how, but I think this book just changed my life! God Bless you Aunty Angie, and Aileen.
