Overview

Cinderella had a prince; Karyn Wallace has a King.

While Karyn served four years in prison for an unthinkable crime, she embraced salvation through Crowns for Christ outreach ministry. After her release, Karyn stays strong and confident, despite the stigma society places on ex-offenders. Since Christ strengthens the underdog, Karyn refuses to sway away from the scripture, "He who the Son has set free is free indeed."
Levi Tolliver, for the most part, is a practicing Christian. One contradiction is he doesn't believe in turning the other cheek. He's steadfast there is a price to pay for every sin committed, especially after the untimely death of his wife during a robbery. Then Karyn enters Levi's life. He is enthralled not only with her beauty, but her sweet spirit until he learns about her incarceration. If Levi can accept that Christ paid Karyn's debt in full, then a treasure awaits him.
Award-winning author Pat Simmons delivers another powerful tale and reminds readers of the permanency of redemption.

Editorial Reviews

Deltareviewer - Monique Bruner
Simmons shines in this Godly romance. This avid reader was overwhelmed by the compassion written and scriptures that spoke to my soul. There were points that I identified with each character which led me to further investigate other scriptures. The character development and storyline pace will have you mesmerized as two families face their demons. CROWNING GLORY is a masterpiece of Christian romance which is definitely is a MUST read.

    Mending Broken Hearts

    After seven visits to Bookshelves Unlimited, widower Levi Tolliver asks Karyn Wallace, the store's children specialist, out on a date. He believes that God is telling him it's time to move on. He's been grieving the loss of his wife, Diane, for the past four years. With the help of his daughter Dori, he is slowly bringing his head from underneath the sand.

    Karyn Wallace has had to overcome a lot. She found God while serving time. After being released from jail, she continues her walk. With school, work and church occupying her time, she doesn't seem to have time for anything or anyone else. That is until she met Levi and Dori.

    Levi and his daughter Dori are truly in love with Karyn. He's attending her church, taking her to dinner and sending her flowers. Karyn has fallen in love with Levi and his daughter. Unfortunately, she has not been truthful with Levi. Karyn's secret has the potential to turn Levi's love for her into pure hate. Can their love handle the past?

    Pat Simmons has done it again! "Crowning Glory" is an easy read and as always the book gives me comfort. As I read her books I always have my bible open.

    Let The Redeemed...Say So!

    3 1/2 Star Review

    What do you get when you combine a born-again Christian, a handsome widow and his adorable daughter? A match made in heaven? Maybe--maybe not.

    The relationship between Karyn Wallace and Levi Tolliver seems to be headed in the right direction; that is until he reveals his true thoughts--he believes that anyone on the wrong side of the law deserves whatever punishment they get. His point-of-view leaves Karyn in the precarious position as to whether or not he can handle knowing her past.

    Added to Karyn's stress is her determination to overlook the less than cordial attitude of a co-worker and the venomous personality of Levi's sister-in-law. Unfortunately, neither of these ladies are willing to allow Karyn to live a life minus strife.

    In Crowning Glory Author Simmons has woven a story that will satisfy the need of the romantic and those struggling to overcome their past. Prayerfully, this work will cause the reader to take stock of their beliefs and what holding on to the pain of the past can do to harm not other their future, but that of others.
