Product Description

Melinda Johnson has always felt called to ministry. So, when her father, Bishop Langston Johnson, decides to step down after thirty years of leadership at Omega Christian Center, it seems only natural for her to take his place. But Bishop Johnson feels led by a God who has other things in mind, and to succeed him, he appoints Steven Marks-a man who is opposed to female pastors, not to mention the fact that he is Melinda's ex-fianci.

Feeling defeated, Melinda nevertheless maintains her position as the church's Missions and Community Outreach Director. Frequent interaction with the new bishop incites bitter sparring-and rekindles long-suppressed attraction, which grows only stronger when Melinda develops a relationship with Steven's precious daughter, Brianna, who's still struggling with the death of her mother.

Can Steven and Melinda set aside past pains, forgive each other, and learn to love again? Or will their opposing positions regarding women preachers keep them forever at odds?

    Can one woman fulfill her dream and still be granted the love of her heart?I have never read a story where a woman wanted to be a preacher. I started the book a bit apprehensive. I am very conservative and wasnt sure how the author would write the story and convince me, without making me feel I was going against my beliefs.I was pleased. Melinda starts out a determined woman. A woman determined to serve the Lord as a minister for Him. Her main focus, the pulpit. What I enjoyed the most about this story was the growing that Melinda did. She started out proclaiming that she was doing Gods will, but it was really her agenda to prove her past love interest wrong.The changes she made were real and convincing. To avoid spoilers I wont say what they are, just that I was pleased when I finished the novel- even with a decision I wouldnt have made- it was obviously right for Melinda. There is a great deal of gospel and faith in the novel, so it is definitely for the reader who will enjoy reading about a characters deep faith journey- which I did.There was a love story and a multitude of challenges that added depth to the story. All in all, I enjoyed the novel and was glad I had the chance to read it.Thanks for the author for my copy to influence. I received no compensation for this review.
