From the moment I opened the book, I could not put it down. What a fantastic story of trust and unconditional love. This book showed how real love should be. I could feel the story. Many truths were taught especially about waiting on God. I loved it. Can wait for the next book.

This is a great book to read for those that are new to Christian romance. It provides fresh and interesting viewpoints on singles, dating, and ministry in the church. In addition, there are issues that the characters¿ deal with (which are great for discussions) such as loss, hurts, forgiveness, and family. This novel is an encouragement to all. Please read, spread the word, and enjoy!

First Sunday in October presents a view of the purity that can be had in a relationship between a man and woman. Julia Simone is not the ordinary woman. Her outer persona is the reflection of a successful woman in total control of her surroundings. The same can be said for Pastor Reginald Pennington. The two are mature and know what they want out of life. Through happenstance they enter into a business agreement. Exposure to one another opens the door to possibilities beyond business. It will be Pastor Pennington's preconceived notion of who she is and the truth of what he expects that jeopardizes what could be. Additionally each has a past that is blocking their way to true happiness. Unlike most romance novels, First Sunday in October takes its characters and readers through the process of becoming a friend and then growing through friendship. As like turns to love the story is not infiltrated with the trappings of steamy date nights and/or gratuitous bedroom scenes. Combining biblical truths with a strong storyline Author Campbell has presented a tale well worth reading. Reviewer/Dr. Linda F. Beed On Assignment Reviews

This first offering from wanda b. Campbell is excellent. It offers clean romance based upon christian principles. There was no profanity, no explicit sexual situations, and no ethically immoral plots. As a minister-in-training i found it highly refreshing to read an entertaining and engaging romance novel of this calibre. I see great things for ms. Campbell, and intend to keep watching for more from her.

This new author amazingly captures the essence of real life situations in the single Christian community as they seek for divine love! She gives christians a new sense of hope and a guideline to dating God's way It can be done if one truly seeks and waits on the Lord. What one may percieve as mere circumstance, God had it ordain before the foundation of the world for each person to be int he right place at the right time. The story is funny, romantic, and deals with real life situations we encounter in our daily walk with Christ. If we don't lose focus on God, we won't fall into temeptation. For all the single woman and men of God, keep trusting and believing There is a Julia and Reginald waiting just for you.
