Overview

Preston Brown is one of the most elegant and upcoming stars in the African-American community; who has destiny written all over him. He has everything a twenty-five year old man could ever want in life: a miraculous looking wife (Delight), kids, dog, and a career lined up after seminary school to top it all off.
Although, very intelligent and keen with words you will find out how Preston’s strengths will ultimately turn into his center of weakness. Preston finds himself in a series of unfortunate events that makes it difficult for him to even believe in himself after some time. Preston’s ambitious attributes meet the test when he finds himself caught up with a woman that attracts him in every way. Preston soon finds himself in a dilemma of whether to stay married or get a divorce.
The first of a three part series will read to you a story about failure, struggle, and redemption at its greatest capacities. Find out how the consistent faith of his wife delivers him from evil and how Preston finds humility as the greatest spiritual relief he has ever felt.

    Not well written

    There were just too many things that didnt make sense. In one breath Preston is thinking about how good he has it and in the next he talks about working only a part time job and how him and his wife are barely making it on foodstamps and medicad. The entire book is a bunch of contradictions and reads like it was written by a fifth grader. Sorry but I strongly recommend skipping this one even at its cheap price.

    Interesting but.....

    Although it keeps you interested, it's predictable and poorly edited. This is the reason I gave it 2 stars instead of 3.

    I have tons of respect for people trying to make it as an author, but this novella is confusing. The story line is all over the place and the bad diction made it difficult for me to understand what the writer was trying to express. However I gave two stars for the courage to introduce their work to the world.

    Good Book

    This book was more of a mini story but was still a good read. There is a 2nd part that continues and is titled How do I get out of here. I would most definitely check out more books from this author.

    Ok

    This book was ok,not really exciting to me. I could pretty much see what was going to happen before it did. Though, I am interested to read on in the series.
