Zora Nella Hampton Johnson knows exactly where she comes fromand her daddy won't let her forget. Of course for that privilege he keeps her in Prada and Kate Spade, Coach and YSL. He chooses her boyfriend, her car, her address, and ignores her love of painting, art, and the old ways of her grandaddy's soulful AME churchwhere the hymns pleaded, cajoled, and raised the roof. Her daddy may be a preacher, but some-where among the thousands of church members, the on-site coffee house, and the JumboTron, Zora lost God. And she wants Him back.
Nicky Parker, a recent graduate of Berkeley and reformed playboy, also suffers the trials of being a preacher's kid, and he can't remember the last time he saw eye-to-eye with his white, racist, Southern Baptist father. What he does rememberand it will be forever burned in his brain despite myriad prayers to Jesusis the way Zora looked the first time he saw her. Like Nefertiti. Only better. When they meet at a bible study far from their respective home churches, the first churlish, sarcastic sparks that fly sizzle with defensiveness. But God has a special way of feeding the flames and though of different flocks, these two lost sheep will find Him and much, much more.

CurledUpWithaBookThe MaritimesAge: 55-65Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Good book just not my style.January 8, 2014CurledUpWithaBookThe MaritimesAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3After a few pages I wasn't sure if I wanted to continue reading but decided there was something much deeper happening in this story so I read the entire book. This book is about two young individuals who decide they don't want to follow in their parents' faith. They step out to find the truth of the gospel for themselves. The story is very real and the author holds nothing back. So yes, it is a great story - just a little too uncomfortable for me but I applaud the author for tackling the issues of racism and sexuality.
