      This is the best book I've read in a long time ! Many African American women can relate to this story in more ways than one, whether it's, sickness, multiple or dead beat babies fathers, poverty, sickness/terminal illness, family issues, or losing a sibling through violence. "Kenisha" touched my heart. She really went through a lot of heartache, pain and suffering!Even though Kenisha's physical ending wasn't what I hoped for, but her spiritual beginning was right on time and that made me look over and examine my life. I would love to read more books by this sophisticated author ! Thank You !

      I am the church librarian and do all the buying of books for the library. This story is completely believable in today's society but not appropriate to go into a church library because of some of the details given in the story. Otherwise, it is a good book.

      I decided to read this book after my book club had a discussion on it and their comments peaked my interest. If I had saw this book on the shelf at my local bookstore I'm not sure I would have bought it. So I'm very glad that the book came up for review at the book club. This is a story I would not have wanted to miss.

      Warning: This story is a real tear-jerker, so keep the Kleenex handy.

      The story follows two women Deidre, a grade school principle who strives to follow after God's heart and Kenisha, a 23 year old mother of three, who could care less about God, because she figures He feels the same way about her. She is dying.

      The women's paths cross when Kenisha treatments interfere with her picking up her son from school. However, Deidre isn't aware of Kenisha's condition and things are said between the two and it becomes quite clear that they won't soon become fast friends. But God had other plans.

      "Long Time Coming" by Vanessa Miller is a story of faith and sorrow. As you journey with these women through their story you learn a lot about understanding the hearts of those who have hurt them deeply as well as those that they have hurt. Then being able to learn to forgive them and accept forgiveness. And in Kenisha's case, that also includes forgiving God.

      I give "Long Time Coming" four stars because of its riveting storyline and the poignant way this story was told. My only disappointment was the predictable ending. However, this is a book that will stay with you long after you turn the last page. It will inspire you to reach into your own heart and your own past to see if there's anything there that you still need to give to God. This is one book that I would love to see made into a movie.

      Buy a copy for a friend. Trust me, they will be eternally grateful.

      It's a great book. I think everyone should read it. Many women go through the things that the various women went through in this book.
