Product Description

After three years of marriage, Denise Hightower discovers that her husband, Pastor Bryce Hightower, has an addiction; one that has plagued him for 17 years. Pastor Hightower's subsequent denial and casual attitude toward his addiction jeopardizes not only his marriage, but impairs his ability to effectively preach the gospel. When confronted with the addiction by a parishioner, will he be able to come clean with himself, God, and his congregation?

    I love this book. I could not put it down. I took my hat off to Denise because she wanted so much to be there for her husband and make her marriage work. But the beauty of this story was Benny. Benny was truly sent by God to help uproot the ivy in the pastor's life and help this man be what God chose him to be for the church. This story touched my soul--I cried.

    I was interested in reading this book because it deals with a really edgy subject matter that most authors are scared to talk about, but is actually a huge epidemic in our culture and our church. Pornography is a scary subject because it rips marriages apart but is hidden in shame and guilt. Consequently most people that are addicted to pornography never deal with their addiction and are never able to walk in freedom. Wanda Campbell approaches this subject with honesty and frankness as we meet Bryce and Denise who have been married for a few years now and Denise becomes abruptly aware of her husband's addiction to pornography. She is devasted and is ready to divorce him because in her eyes he has been committing adultry. Of course the fact that he is the pastor of their church could turn out to be a tragedy for the church... or will it?Excellently done this book could be a wonderful tool for those who are addicted or living with those addicted and could lead to freedom for many people!

    I admire the author for writing about pornography--a neglected subject matter--in this Christian fiction novel about an African-American pastor and his wife. The plot flows nicely, and I chose to stay up late to finish it. I wanted to see how it turns out. I'm glad that I made that choice.The characters are beautifully written. Denise and Bryce are a couple in love with a serious problem to solve. I found myself rooting for their marriage to succeed. Benny and Lucinda cause some chuckles with their snappy dialog. Erin, the good friend, is quite believable; Jonas, though, is too good to be true.The scenes at church are well written--even to the point of putting on the "church faces" and using the "church voices." Sins are sometimes hidden, best in churches.I loved the metaphor of the ivy hedge.However, there are some grammatical errors. Additional editing needs to take place, That said, it is still a worthwhile read.

    Four stars for the story and three for the writing style. This story is a compelling look at things Christians don't want exposed, and I would highly recommend it to people struggling with secrets sins. There is a lot of truth that can be gleaned from this story, not to mention inspiration and conviction. And the characters were great, too. I totally loved them all.
