Bridewell and Aldasir-Johnson are talented writers. Their plot comes to life on the pages of this book. I could see the scenes unfold on the stage behind my eyes. I witnessed Staci as she played the part of the serpent, tempting Maxi, to lure Malcolm to break his wedding vows.I found the character of Maxi appealing. Malcolm reminded me of the biblical story of Hosea. Daddy Hill reminded me of the Pharisees. The congregation comprises the men ready to stone the woman. The authors have done a fantastic job, creating a parable that we can all relate to.Patricia has written a book based on actual events. The bases of the book is abuse and how people react to the abused. There is a lot of irony in this story. The Christian church teaches and preaches grace and forgiveness and yet, as demonstrated in this book, it doesn’t always practice what it preaches. I prefer not to give away too much of the plot. Suffice it to say that the church is not a building but people and people are fallible. It would do us all good to remember that no one is without sin. I would not want to be part of the church depicted in this tale. (Above not Dr.Rose's comments.)
