God asked the biblical Abraham to sacrifice his son. But Abraham Martin's only god is money.
Successful media mogul Abraham Martin has great wealth, an elegant wife, Saralyn, and a rebellious son, Isaac. He also has a secret: a second family that no one knows about. Now, after thirty years—driven by the urging of his long dormant conscience—Abraham is determined to do the right thing by finally bringing his illegitimate children into the light...and into the family fold.
But beautiful, manipulative Saralyn will never accept the proof of her husband's indiscretions. Isaac, the heir, shaken by his father's revelations, will fight mercilessly when his world is threatened, and may lose everything that matters as a result. And while Abraham's forgotten daughter, Deborah, is open to the undreamed-of possibilities suddenly awaiting her, his son, Michael, cannot forgive the man who cruelly abandoned them to near poverty. And he's driven by only one desire: revenge!
Angela Benson's Sins of the Father is a powerful story of a house bitterly divided—a rich, multilayered family saga of betrayal and redemption, rage and compassion, faith, forgiveness, and ultimately, of love.
Angela Benson is a graduate of Spelman College and the author of thirteen novels, including the Christy Award–nominated Awakening Mercy, the Essence bestseller The Amen Sisters, Up Pops the Devil, and Sins of the Father. She is an associate professor at the University of Alabama and lives in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
“[Benson’s] themes will resound with many readers and her portrayal of a newly reformed, albeit occasionally backsliding, sinner is masterful.”

Angela deals with hard issues, she doesn't back down from anything! In "Up Pops the Devil" her main character is a man just released from prison after serving 2 years for dealing drugs. In "Sins of the Father" we get to meet Abraham, his wife Saralyn and his son Isaac with his wife Rebecca (sound familiar?). Abraham is a VERY successful media mogul that has a secret... or rather HAD a secret. Oh, yes, he has a second family that he has only just acknowledged. That's right, a son and daughter that are adults now and Abraham decides he needs to make everything right. But can you really do that after a lifetime of neglect? And what about the damage to his wife and son? Can Abraham pull them all together and restore everyone to their rightful places? And what about when something happens to Abraham? What does it take to really forgive? I said that Angela isn't afraid to ask the tough questions, and she's not. She's also not afraid to answer them. I love Angela's style and her substance. I will read any book that she writes, I am impressed!
