From the outside looking in, Preston Owens is a former pastor who has fallen from God’s grace. He chose his mistress over his ministry and family. Or at least that’s how the news is circulating. As Cheri, the infamous mistress, tries to talk to her mother about the love of her life, her mother forces her to decide to either be her daughter or his wife.

Two years later, Cheri and Preston are married and trying to rebuild their lives. Ostracized from both their families, they both pray to

This book was incredible, could not put it down at all. Caught you attention from the start and lasted throughout the book. It had twists throughout the book and just when you start to think the lady should walk away from the lies - it turns out to not be lies, it turns out to be twist to the story. It was sad in some places especially when they ship the boy back to his mom instead of working it out with the dad who thought he was in the way.

Great book - highly recommended.

Won on goodreads giveaway. Review coming soon.
I tried. I really tried to like this book. It read more like a sermon from a minister to ministers in training about personal problems. You can read the plot summary for yourself on the book site.

I received this book as a giveaway from Goodreads. It is the first book I have read by this author. This book is about a minister, Preston Owens who divorces his wife of 12 years and marries the love of his life, Cheri Anderson. Preston's family think they know what is best for him, in choosing a lady to be "the best Christian wife" for him. Preston wants to be a obedient son, but this ends up being a recipe for disaster.
