What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
"Poverty, prostitution, drug running, violence, marital strife, and racism meet Providence, positive power, prayer, and pacifism in this remarkable tale. The settings of pre-earthquake Haiti, an African American senator’s office, and the Mennonite community of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia provide a fascinating look at expediency/integrity, antagonism/reconciliation, and ethnocentrism/global community through the eyes of faith. At first you wonder if Jones can pull it off. But it is clear he has done his research well. While nobility of character is everywhere present, there is enough baseness to go around. It is a carefully crafted introduction to very human beings in widely separated situations." - Owen E. Burkholder, Harrisonburg, VA.

    The Colors Will Change by Louis N. Jones is the story of Carline

    The Colors Will Change by Louis N. Jones is the story of Carline Lissade, a Haitian woman who finds herself in hiding after connecting with professional criminals in an attempt to find work and survive. Carline had always been poor, though she didn't know it, because she was raised in a loving family. But, when Carline's father, mother and brother are all taken from her, she's alone, desperate and unsuccessful at making her own miracles and then realizes just how much she needs God.

    Carline puts her reservations about God behind her, and calls out to Him in prayer for rescue. He saves her, and sends Mamie, Myles, Simon, Alyce and reconnects her with Tim after two years, to show her that God really does place the lonely in families.

    This book was slow starting, and because of that I wasn't sure I'd enjoy it. But, I stuck with it and am glad I did. The book finished well, and included some highly profound spiritual truths that I hadn't expected to come across while reading it. 

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through BookCrash.

    The Colors Will Change by Louis N. Jones In Haiti, Carline Lissa

    The Colors Will Change by Louis N. Jones
    In Haiti, Carline Lissade turns to prostitution in order to surivive. But her first night out, she quickly learns how one poor decision can have devastating consequences. Her first — and only — customer offers her fifty dollars to be his interpretor. Desperate for money, Carline agrees — her second mistake that night. It’s too late to back out by the time she realizes she’s in the midst of a drug deal. This one night hurls her into a life-and-death struggle where all of the players are desperate to win. Her strongest ally is a U.S. Senator, but is he any match for such powerful enemies?
    This book was very suspenseful and entertaining. I liked Carline, and I was rooting for her to survive. Unfortunately, she couldn’t run from her problem. It followed her wherever she went. It proved to be a good lesson for the reader. One bad decision can ruin your life. We need to pray for wisdom and God’s guidance when we have an important decision to make.
    The characterizations were wonderful. I liked quite a few of the characters. And the bad guys were truly awful. They would stop at nothing to achieve their goals.
    I did have some problems with this book. In an attempt at realism, the author uses a few bad words and crass statements. He also uses the wrong name on more than one occasion. It bothered me that everyone seemed to side with Alyce regarding her infidelity. And the viewpoint character sometimes knew things that he couldn’t possibly know, like someone’s name or where he lived.
    These things aside, it was a really good book. I would definitely recommend it.
    BookCrash has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.

    Forgiveness and acceptance

    This is a compelling story covering so many themes. Racism, faith, prostitution, drug trafficking, infidelity, plus more.
    Though I found it hard to put down, there were a few scenes that didn’t feel finished and a couple of major issues that seemed to be solved too easily. At times I found it hard to turn off the writerly editor in me.
    But overall it is a great read and as it is filled with timely reminders of forgiveness and acceptance, I would highly recommend you grab a copy.
