Product Description

Yvonne Fountain Copeland is shattered when her husband of fifteen years decides to leave her because their marriage is "boring." Determined to stay strong for her daughters, Yvonne returns to her hometown of Durham, North Carolina, to pick up the pieces of her life. While nursing a broken heart, she begins to take solace in God's promise to "see her through the storm." Little does she know that her golden umbrella will come in the form of handsome Coach Curtis Parker. Coach Parker seems to have it all: money and a successful coaching career at Evangeline T. Marshall University, plus he's single and childless! But Yvonne and Curtis are two searching souls whirling in circles, trying to attain happiness without God's help.

Publisher's Description

Yvonne Fountain Copeland is determined to move on after her husband of fifteen years decides to leave her because their marriage became "boring." Returning to her hometown of Durham, North Carolina, Yvonne is convinced that a change of scenery will help her draw closer to God and find inner peace. Yvonne didn't know that the journey to peace would lead her to sexy, single childless basketball coach Curtis Parker.

Yvonne and Curtis soon discover that you can't find true peace and joy without God's help. What began as a series of "why me's" evolves into an extraordinary journey consisting of victory, faith, joy and love.

Publisher's Weekly

Yvonne Fountain Copeland, the heroine of Bowen’s lamentable faithy novel, finds strength in the Lord when her husband leaves her. Back in hometown Durham, N.C., she lands a teaching job and meets Curtis Parker, who is everything she could want in a man—except he isn’t saved. Curtis has his own problems, many of which are linked to his job as a college basketball coach, but with Yvonne by his side, they learn nothing’s insurmountable if they have Jesus on their side. Unfortunately, the intense faith theme overwhelms every other aspect of the narrative. The characters are poorly drawn, their troubles lack urgency, and there’s never a doubt about how things will turn out. (Apr.)Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

    Michele Andrea Bowen never fails to entertain with her realistic fictional accounts of Black church life with hard hitting messages that are appropriately sprinkled with delightful humor. I grew up in a denomination which mirrors the Gospel United Church and can relate to "everything" she describes. The the difference is: The name was changed to protect the guilty!

    I have read all of her books in this series and love them all. I also re-read them because they are so wonderfully entertaining!!
