Overview

When one woman is caught in the act of her greatest transgression, it's the beginning of her greatest transformation. . .

It started innocently: a coincidental meeting between old high school friends--first loves--at Butterfly's business, The Painted Lady Flower Shop. Then came lunch, then confessions of unhappy marriages, loneliness. It went on that way for years between Butterfly and Ethan. That's how they built the soul tie--the bond that, despite their devotion to God, has now led to adultery. And as with all things done in secret, they've been found out. Well, Butterfly has.

As a leader in her church, Butterfly is suddenly cast into the spotlight. But she soon realizes she's being used as a pawn to bring down a new pastor--a young man who is upsetting tradition by preaching about real-life issues real people deal with. People like Butterfly. And as she faces a challenging search for truth, forgiveness, and the real meaning of love, she may finally break out of her cocoon. . .

"There are enough tears, hugs, and lessons learned before summer's over to appease readers, young and adult, who like a good dose of faith with their fiction." --Publishers Weekly on Ray of Hope

"Griggs address[es] the challenges of living by Biblical rules with homespun humor. Fans will be pleased." --Publishers Weekly on The Truth Is the Light

"A smart novel that addresses an issue that many in the church shy away from--divorce--with frank realism."--Library Journal on Practicing What You Preach

"Vanessa's rich stories of faith in action always hit the writing trifecta--they make you laugh, cry, and yearn for more." --Angela Benson, National bestselling author

"I absolutely love Vanessa's unique writing style. She is one of a kind." --Mary Monroe, New York Times bestselling author

    Great Reading...with a Disclaimer!

    If you are not into books that are not only great reads but also teach spiritual, Biblically-based lesson, then this book is not for you!

    Without giving away the plot, Forever Soul Ties deals with putting oneself into situations that lead to sin and continuing to do so. It also reinforces the principle that no sin is greater than another.

    I would highly recommend this book to others!

    I couldnt get into it. The story seem to stall in some areas, and dragged on for several pages. This couldve been told in about 50 pages. I like this author alot, but this book just wasnt for me.

    Review: "Forever Soul Ties" by Vanessa Davis Griggs

    Review: "Forever Soul Ties" by Vanessa Davis Griggs was
    another good VSG read for me. I really enjoyed this novel for several
    reasons. One was for the 'Bible quotes and mini-sermons' along with the
    beautiful story that only Ms. Griggs can give us. In this novel there is
    a old flame love interest.... now was this leading to a adulterous
    relationship?...the mistreatment of the wife for over twenty years.....
    and the many family problems that came about in this story. Now,
    getting back to this 'Soul Ties' was really something in that this
    Ethan's character was really something...and I am so glad the way Ms.
    Griggs brought this novel out to us. I do not want to say to much and
    give the story away...just pick this up and see just how "Forever
    Soul Ties" and this 'Butterfly' will turn out. This novel will
    leave you being able to see how 'soul ties' can be a good or a bad thing
    but the decision will be all yours. I love Ms. Griggs books and this one
    was right up there with all of the others... great! You will truly be
    blessed by reading "Forever Soul Ties." and I do recommend it
    to you.

    I found the book to be very interesting. There were a few slow places in it, but not enough for me to put it down. If you enjoy Christian fiction, this is a good read.
