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.

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.

Unexpected

The read was not what I was expecting. I love horses and dove right into the story of one of their amazing cousins and the Family that surrounded him. Though sometimes I found myself hoping the family would have gotten a little help from some knowledgeable equine professional, perhaps the Lessons that were brought forth to them would have been missed. Thanks to the lord for his wonderful creation and for talking and instructing us through it! And thanks to him for bringing someone like Rachel into our lives. She is filled with the lords grace to see and share what amazing things our lord is capable of doing.

Awesome book

Well written, entertaining, and serious... light and heavy... made me laugh and cry. The Life lessons from the cute donkey are indeed great reminders.

What about Flash?

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

A MUST HAVE EXPERIENCE!

I listened to this audio book on a road trip. As a working mom with a hobby farm complete with donkeys, I related to every word.

An enjoyable read you will laugh and you will cry.

With a little patience, you can see the works of Christ in everything... even a donkey.
