Shante Dogan was the epitome of A Virtuous Woman. A woman after God¿s own heart, she loved the Lord first and her daughter, Camille, who was away in college. Everything else was put into perspective even trying to be spiritually free from her ex-husband, Kevin. It was time for the annual convocation again and no matter how many years Shante went, she continued to run into the same types of secular bishops, and secular ministers, apostles and the like. The men were Godly in front of the congregation, but were lustful and shameful underneath the surface. Shante was a pastor of her church, well respected, loved by her congregation, and was the catalyst in the astounding church growth since she succeeded her previous pastor. Shante loved her godsons and became more of a mother to them once their own mother died. She was a close friend of Max, their father, but she could not give him more, in spite of his feelings. Shante was being tried in the fire when trouble arose, her character was at stake and some members of her congregation wanted her out. She did not feel comfortable portraying herself anything less than an upstanding woman of God. Shante desired more but was afraid to say the words to Max and was afraid of her past becoming her present. Revealing her past is the only way she could heal and be connected with the lover of her soul.<BR/><BR/>Maxwell Patrick, was a Pastor, father, who was well respected and a widower. Max was left to raise three sons after his wife was killed. Max had known Shante since college, she was his children¿s godmother and they were good friends. Max¿s feeling grew for Shante and he was no longer interested in having a platonic friendship with her. On many occasions Max tried to tell Shante how he felt about her, but the would always push him away. There was nothing that Max would not do for Shante even making her his wife. Shante made excuse after excuse of why she could not be in a relationship with anyone. Even though God told him that she would be his wife, the more he had faith in what was spoken, Shante¿s actions were enough to make him doubt. Max continued to stand by Shante, and love her unconditionally. No matter what Max was there to take care of her, and to pick up the pieces if needed. The boys loved her as their mother as much as he loved her as his wife to be. Faith renewed he vowed, that Shante would be his wife.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I Also Recommend:
What I liked most about this book was that it was different for what I have ever read. I have read love/christian story, but never about a "Lady Preacher." I must admit that I was about to be bored about the middle of the book. I say this because the author had the two characters Max and Shante going on and on about nothing. The book started after awhile got the fire rolling again. Another, this book had a lot of a passion that you want to have a better relationship with God. I felt the different prayers in this book. I am glad that Pastor Dogan kinda got her act together. I must say this I didn't like the ending it wasn't strong enough for me and it left a lot of question for me. This is all I am going to say because I want you readers to read it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
