Spiritual, sensual, liberating!
'Ms. Patton pens an incredible story of 'true' love as she casts brilliant light on the spirit over the mind in her debut novel, 'From Faythe to Ever-Increasing Faith.' Faythe Alexander's journey is one that most women can only hope to take. She is a very successful, highly educated, beautiful Black woman who often times underestimates the power she has within. She learns to face her fears, and presses her way on to become the Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for a Fortune Five-Hundred Corporation, in the City of Chicago. But, it is only when she truly considers the price, which had been paid in full for all she'd become, that she is moved beyond her own inferior self-image, and into a glorious love affair with The Almighty! The 'Source' before and behind Faythe's triumphs and defeats ignite her spirit in a powerful way, and leads her to encounter heaven right here on earth! Faythe Alexander is truly the sistah girlfriend every woman would love to have in her life!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

What a shocker!
'I received the very thing I did not expect, the story of Faythe Alexander, a flawed black woman, who rose from a humble background and soared to corporate heights. Through her intimate relationship with God, Faythe was able to achieve exactly what the book focuses on, and that is, ever-increasing faith. Her personal walk with God clearly demonstrates that He is true to His word. The novel treats the reader to a romantic experience like no other. The love between David Karlson and Faythe Alexander takes the heart and soul to new levels of conscieousness. The reader falls victim to a love everyone aspires to have--spiritual, soulful, and sensual. Sit back for the ride of your life! Just when you think the story can't get any better, you're introduced to Thaddeus Geissler, an amazing character, who is dearly loved by and devoted to Faythe. What comes out of Faythe's and Thaddeus' friendship will remain in the reader's heart long after the story has ended. Ms. Patton's debut novel far exceeds expectations in writing style and ability. One might assume the author is a seasoned novelist by the remarkable way in which she draws the reader into the story and the character's lives.'Was this review helpful?

Could not put it down!
WARNING: Before you read this book, please insure that you have a warm fire burning in your fireplace, cup of coffee or cocoa at the side of your most comfortable easy chair, and that you are able to treat yourself to a quiet, uninterrupted afternoon, because this book is such that once you begin it you will not be able to put it down! Ms. Patton develops the characters and storylines of their lives in such a way, that you find yourself identifying with their struggles, fears, and triumps and you feel like she is writing about your life or someone who you know. I really loved the ending of the book which I hope Ms. Patton will pick up the ending and write the sequel that follows the lives of all the characters. The moral of the story is how the character Faythe used her friendship and her personal convictions to minister the unconditonal love of Christ to her friends. She did not walk in judgment of others, but looked in the mirror of her own life, judging her own mistakes, and made decisions that put her faith in action that moved her to new levels of faith and phenomenal blessings. She was able to draw people to the Lord by her own example and this I believe is the most effective way we all need to minister to others about the salvation of the Lord! I strongly recommend Ms. Patton's debut book and like me you will eagerly await her sequels and future novels.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
