3.5 stars. "The worst day of my life was the day I caught my husband cheating on me."

That alone would be enough to throw even a strong woman into a tailspin. But the fact that Monica Harris-Day finds her worship-leader husband cheating with another man is an even greater shock. How could she have been so blind and not seen the signs? Should she divorce him on the spot? And why is their mega-church pastor so quick to look the other way?

Monica faces an emotional tempest in My Soul Cries Out. As a

Review for My Soul Cries Out by Sherri L. Lewis

Oh my goodness! This book grabbed my attention and hooked me in the first chapter just like a great book should. I love Christian Fiction but Sherri L. Lewis exceeded my expectation. I love how she boldly addressed a topic that many people dare not approach.

She introduced supporting characters who had lives of their own that were interesting enough to enrich the story line yet respecting the main characters’ roles and allowing them to shine while c

I have a heart for Sherri Lewis' writing and her way of weaving a message through her stories. I never hesitate to pick up her book because I know I'll enjoy it, receive a message and be inspired by her.

My Soul Cries Out is a powerful redemption story about Monica and Kevin that on more than one occasion moved me to tears. I loved how the author wasn't afraid to tell it like it is when it came to internal thoughts, especially the skank ho references to certain women. Hilarious! The author masterfully wrote about Monica's rage the way it might really happen and didn't soften the issues for fear of offending the reader. This is real life trauma and heartache! Monica was a very flawed character bu ...more

Awesome, yet heartwrenching story. The author does an excellent job of tapping into an issue that is normally addressed behing closed doors. Be careful because this story has the potential to take you on a very emotional journey.

Initially I was somewhat skeptical about this book, however I truly enjoyed it! The characters were well developed and you felt their struggles! Well done ,Sherri L.Lewis!

Loved this book. Like the other reviews it brought tears, laughs, smiles, anger. it was a well written book. It is a book of forgiveness, relationship, marriage, love, friendship, re-inventing yourself, trusting and faith. This book made me think. I found myself going from "there's no way I could do this" to " I wonder if I could do this?" It is symbolic of "The Church" today and "christians " today (in so many ways about so many things from homosexuality to witnessing and walking in Faith). My ...more

Amazingly written, amazingly inspiring and I am amazingly moved. There are so many times we read Christian fiction and it not touch the issues of today or the real Christian and this book did it all. I felt so many emotions reading this, like God was trying to remind me of something I am forever moved.

I love this book. Sherri is an amazing writer. She is also a good friend of mine, so I am tremendously biased. She wrote a book with a controversial theme. She tackled it biblically and responsibly. Her characters are real. Their emotions are deep and at the end you are excited about the resolve. This is an amazing book. She is an amazing writer! Also, see DANCING WITH DESTINY! Love! Love. LOVE!! SHERRI LEWIS!

I have just found a new favorite Chritian writer! This book was so awesome, spiritual, heart-wrenching, funny and thought provoking. When I got to the last page I wanted to read it all over again! If you have had any struggles with why you believe what you believe and needed real answers this books offers a litany of answers. Definitely one of my favorites.

Two people coming together ask one, and then the most hurting happen, you catch your husband in the bed, witrh someone and you do what? Do you leave or stay? which one would you do? This novel jsut wasn't for me I couldnt get my soul into it something was left out? I understand you forgive but you don't forget.
Jamie
I wasn't sure that I was going to like this b/c I honestly tend to ignore books that focus on this controversial topic. However after I read the first chapter excerpt online I decided to read it and.... I AM SO GLAD I MADE THAT DECISION. I smiled, I frowned, I laughed, I cried, and I read this book in one night!
Terri
I liked how she handled the situation with her husband. Instead of making a rush decision, she took some time out and removed herself from the situation to analyze everything and make a complete sound decision on her situation without anyone influencing her.

Excellent book. I learned about the struggles of homosexuals in the church. I learned not to judge, but to pray for these people. I learned that God can heal any situation in a marriage where there is love.

I absolutely love this book!! I've read more than half of the book in 2 days and will finish it tonight so I can start on something else. Will write more when I'm done. I highly suggest this book.
Ozeilia Donnette
It's a good book. But,I'm the forgiven type. But,I can't stay w/a man who has cheated on me; and especially if he has cheated on me w/another guy.
Kim
I read the first 10 pgs or so and then just read the last 5 pgs. The book's summary kinda leads to figure out the ending of the story.
Carol Hornsby-mccoy
A great love story, the writer demonstrate ways in which God can do what man can't do alone using everyday life. Fabulous ending !

This book was really good. I could not put it down and even though I didn't like the ending I will still give it five stars.
