It was an overall good read. I am not sure of the yet relationship between Rena and Graham. I think perpaps it was a love that never got to fully grow therefore fondness is still there. I think if Rena does not get help with her temper, she could possible hurt their child as well. Never though the story would be about elder abuse. I am glad the Pastor was able to forgive her as she seemed very sincere. However her timing on coming to him was a little coincidental. She seem to be scared because h ...more

"My Son's Next Wife" by Shelia E. Lipsey [Bell]

My Thoughts....

Now this third series of this author's 'My Son's Next Wife' was another quite interesting read that will keep your attention till the end. Dramatic...yes! All the way through this story. I will say that Stile's second wife, Detria was a piece of work...and left me shaking my head... and sayin

Book three of the "My Son's Wife" series picks up with Pastor Stiles Graham preparing his wedding to Detria. He's also dealing with the fact that his father had suffered his third stroke in as many years. New marriage, ailing parent, part-time college instructor plus full-time ministry equals stress, which leads to problems.

Francesca, Stiles sister and his ex-wife's former lover, is battling health problems of her own, but suddenly finds herself on the receiving end of unconditional love…from a

I enjoyed reading this I think which was the 3rd book in this series. This book highlighted forgiveness. Detria,who is Styles the pastor's wife,started abusing his elderly father. He lived with them and had a stroke and she tried to lift him while she was pregnant. She miscarried a week or so later and she blamed it on him. She ends up asking for his forgiveness and confessing it to her husband and going through the forgiveness thing with him too. I won't tell the whole story so read the book!

From the lame title to the really bad writing, this book is probably the worst one I've read all year.
Wanda (The Watered Soul)
Overall this was a quick fun summer read. The author explored a range of topics from abuse, loss, forgiveness, and love. I did find it weird that the adult children in the book called their father pastor, rather than his name. As people of faith, we understand the concept of faith but I like how the author presented it in a way that each of us would find difficult in walking out.

Great Read

The art of forgiveness is freeing and powerful. This book shows the struggles couples/marriages face when taking care of family members and losing a child. It also shows how God’s love is unconditional through those around us.

This book wasngood. First Lady Audrey has passed on and now the family has begun what is becoming the new normal. Stile has decided to marry Detroit and we all know things don't stay happy for long. The devil comes a knocking. Read the book to find out who comes out on top.

This was a read although it is a continuation, not to tell the story but it is a good lesson and reminder of how God wants all of us to be towards each other .

A really good surprise ending...
I love Shelia Lipsey books but for some reason this was just an okay read for me.

Detria, Stiles Graham's new wife, appeared to be the perfect wife and God sent but as you read midway--she is a whiny woman who would not let go and move forward. She is a young woman who can definitely have a fruitful of offspring. Yet, Shelia opened my eyes to see that woman can still have medical condition without carrying a child full-term. She covered other issues that are easily overlooked too like e

The new wife showed her true colors early on in this book. Stiles just can't seem to catch a break! Overall a great read! This was a great story in this series. It just goes to show that ultimately you can only hide your true feelings and actions for so long. Detria has some issues and I have a feeling Stiles hasn't seen anything yet. Francesca has had a lot to overcome but it goes to show God is a God of second chances. Pastor is a true man of God with a real forgiving heart. This was truly a s ...more

My Son's Next wife by Shelia E. Lipsey introduces a different type of family issue. Stiles is remarried. Stiles and his wife is now taking care of his father. When a family tragedy impacts the family things take a slight turn for the worse. Stiles' wife starts to take her fustration and anger out on her father-in-law. This behavior, if found just might destroy the happy existence that Stiles has worked so hard to keep.

This was the best book of the trilogy to me. The message about forgiveness is DEEP. If you are a child of God, it will make you stop and think about love and forgiveness. Books like this keeps you grounded in the word and if you come from a place of accountability and NOT victim, then you will check yourself.

A GREAT read!!!

I have enjoyed reading this book. Someone called the title lame. I feel like if the title was lame than why read the book. If you have not read this book and the other three before this one. You should because they are good books. This book was about forgiveness and abuse. God's way is nothing like the world's way

Another great novel in this series. I really enjoyed reading this one too. To be able to forgive like Pastor Graham forgave his daughter-in-law after she abused him was awesome. He was truly a man of God. I recommend all three books in this series.
