I haven't read anything this funny in years. Delilah and Thurgood are a old school couple that spent 40 years trying to find their way back to each other. After a hot mess at a night club separated their family, another drama filled few months may bring them back together.

G'Orge-Walker is a master writer of Christian comedy. I was falling on the floor laughing at Delilah's antics while Sister Marty was praying for the families salvation. Jessie

I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!! It is always good to read a good drama. Don't Blame the Devil Was full of excitement and laughs and heart-stopping moments. Delilah Dupree Jewel and Decon Pillar are the funniest two characters since Sister Imahellraiser. This book has substance and depth with biblical references - whether is is King James version or Delilah Dupree, and it gives you a true storyline. The cast in this book could be your neighbors because their story is everyday life. Kudos to Pat G'Orge-Walke ...more

The book was interesting full of humor and showed how a realtionship that can go sour can reborn again. And that no matter if you were not a every day church goer does not mean that you do not read the bible. And prayer does work.
