I just recently learned about Vanessa Miller's books. I felt like "Rip Van Winkle" coming out of a 20-year sleep! Why haven't I seen Ms. Miller's books on all of the emails and catalogues I've received? After finishing the scores and scores of books I buy from CBD, I give them to the local shelters. The patrons need wholesome fiction to read, rather than the smut that is so readily available in the public arena. As an African American myself, I was truly excited to share these books with St. Margaret's House where so many women are uplifted by that ministry.
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.
