REVIEW: The Sign Painter by Davis Bunn


Amy and Kimberly (Kimmie) are adrift as they travel from town to town in an old motorhome. An artist, Amy makes a living painting giant art signs for windows at places like grocery stores and car dealerships.  In response to a painting job, Amy stumbles onto Lucy at a shelter/daycare center.  Lucy and her team of “love in action” Christians help Amy find her footing.  Amy and Kimmie’s change of circumstances would make a great story on its own, however, Davis Bunn has placed these two in a neighborhood where the DEA is keeping tabs on some major drug deals.  There’s a lot going on in the story and it has an interesting and diverse cast of characters.  It is quick to read and its contemporary setting will instill some cheer in the reader when they see how some Christians very well could work to bring hope to the downtrodden.  Thanks to Howard Books for providing me an advance copy for review.
