Would you believe a friend who told you she was pregnant with your pastor's child? Francine Amen doesn't and it leads to drastic consequences for both her and her friend.

Francine Amen burned a lot of bridges when she left her home town to join a traveling ministry. When she's forced to return broken and alone, she finds that making amends is not easy. Her sister, Dawn Amen-Ray, is having her own set of problems. With her marriage to Francine's ex is in trouble, she's not ready to deal with Francine's return.

The Amen Sisters is a compassionate look at the lives that are forever changed when a pastor abuses his power with the women of his congregation.

"Powerful! Soul searching! Spiritually provoking! Angela Benson has again produced a powerful rendition of love, forgiveness, God's grace and mercy in Amen Sisters! It is through the words penned, that Mrs. Benson takes the sensitive issues that are often found within the body of Christ and creates a story so powerful that the reader must examine themselves and their position with God." Rating: 4+
Urban Reviews
"The Amen Sisters is a remarkable novel by Angela Benson. Benson masterfully tackles an often taboo subject: Pastors preying upon women parishioners. This novel not only shows what happens when these women try to come forward with their stories, but also shows the lack of support the church gives these women."
Fallen Angel Reviews
"The Amen Sisters tells the story of sexual sin and the far-reaching consequences of that sin...Ms. Benson aptly captures both the passion and pain that folks bottle up in their lives, and the importance of dealing with situations as they arise. Kudos to Ms. Benson for dealing with one of the last remaining taboo topics in today's church in such a straightforward and compassionate manner." Rating: 5/5
