From the outside looking in, Preston Owens is a former pastor who has fallen from God's grace. He chose his mistress over his ministry and family. Or at least that's how the news is circulating. As Cheri, the infamous mistress, tries to talk to her mother about the love of her life, her mother forces her to decide to either be her daughter or his wife. Two years later, Cheri and Preston are married and trying to rebuild their lives. Ostracized from both their families, they both pray to someday be forgiven. As Cheri's mother falls ill, she can't help but make her way back to Jersey in hopes of finally making amends. While Preston has been playing the background at their new church, God has been busy. When the pastor asks Preston to step in and preach, Preston is worried that his past will possibly disrupt his life. Can Cheri and Preston finally find forgiveness? I've been desperately waiting to read ULTIMATE DILEMMA: FORGIVE ME LORD for quite awhile. I really love how the story is put together and love, forgiveness, marriage, GOD and church work together in this story. As always the Dilemma series kept me turning the pages. My only complaint: there are quite a few issues with editing. Reign, thank you for sharing these lessons with your readers. Every time I read one of these books, I'm moved by how they resolve their issues. I will continue to pray that God continues to restore your health and I'll practice patience as I wait for the next installment. Reviewed by: Crystal 3.5
