An incredible story of how one community of Christians failed God by choosing malevolence over love.

That being said, this is the story of two mothers who are divorcing their husbands for issues ...more

This book was so good that I passed it around my Sunday School class. It made for great discussions. If you've ever felt left out, abandoned, different, or persecuted, this book will encourage you. It is a story like none other than I have ever read.
