Overview

Julia Simone has been thru some very hard times. Her first husband died, leaving her a single parent; her second husband was an abusive man. She has overcome all those difficulties and is now very successful. Julia has everything she could ever want: a beautiful daughter, a loving family, a best friend, and is financially sound. The only thing missing from her life is a true love, but Julia has given up on ever finding that.

Rev. Reginald Pennington is a man with a past that would surprise many. He is ashamed of his past, but he is now a different man. He is a man with a purpose - to spread the word of God. When his path crosses with Julia's, the electricity between them is very evident to everyone but him. He keeps her at arms length, wanting to be with her but telling himself he has no plans to get involved. Julia and Reggie become fast friends after a business deal between her company and his church.

At first, they tell themselves it is merely friendship. Julia's feelings change when Reggie sends mixed signals. Each has a past that they must come to terms with; things for which they must forgive themselves in order to move forward. Life altering events bring surprises and sorrow that test their faith in God, themselves, and each other.

    A must for your Library

    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.

    A must read Christian novel!

    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!

    And The Two Shall Become One

    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

    EXCELLENT !!!

    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.

    Establishing a divine relationship

    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.
