Publisher's Summary

The heartwarming tale of an irrepressible donkey who needed a home - and forever changed a family.

Rachel Anne Ridge was at the end of her rope. The economy had crashed, taking her formerly thriving business along with it. She had been a successful artist, doing work she loved, but now she felt like a failure. How would her family pay their bills? What would the future hold? If only God would somehow let them know that everything was going to be all right... and then Flash the donkey showed up.

If there is ever a good time to discover a wounded, frightened, bedraggled donkey standing in your driveway, this wasn't it. The local sheriff dismissed Flash as "worthless". But Rachel didn't believe that, and she couldn't turn him away. She brought Flash into her struggling family during their darkest hour - and he turned out to be the very thing they needed most.

Flash is the true story of their adventures together in learning to love and trust; breaking down whatever fences stood in their way; and finding the strength, confidence, and faith to carry on. Prepare to fall in love with Flash: a quirky, unlikely hero with gigantic ears, a deafening bray, a personality as big as Texas, and a story you'll never forget.

What about Flash?

This book is more about a women's problems in life, than about a donkey.

We all need a Flash

This was a wonderfully uplifting book, with lessons interwoven from interactions from Flash the donkey. I would recommend this book to anyone that loves donkeys or animals in general.

Good story, but a bit long.

I enjoyed Flash's story, and no one likes a good metaphor as much as I do. However, I felt some of the metaphors were too much of a stretch and went on for too long. In short, I feel the book could have used some tightening up. Didn't enjoy the narration at all, maybe too perky for my taste.

Well worth your time.

I had many good “laugh-out-loud” moments when reading this book. The author’s descriptions of her interactions with Flash were
poignant without being syrupy, and were certainly heartwarming. A delightful book!
