Overview

by Patty Sleem
When Maggie Dillitz trades in her Harvard MBA and lucrative career to pursue a call to ministry, she expects relief from the competitive pressures of business. Instead, she discovers that many people are not ready to accept a female minister, and she develops tangled new relationships which involve her in a shocking tale of lust, intrigue...murder. "An engrossing look at the discrimination faced by female ministers." - Library Journal
Review from The Book Reader: "Lots of contemporary issues in a plot that pulls readers through the pages. Glass ceilings in the ministry, sexual harassment from the least likely corner, homicide no less surprising. Sleem developed an attractive character in Maggie Dillitz, a Harvard Business School grad who gives up the rat race after 15 years to enter the ministry. Less frantic? In her dreams. She is out of an abusive marriage, she's a single mother, but even the church can't give her a break. Intriguing exploration of current Judeo-Christian issues." This second novel by Patty Sleem explores issues related to career change, sexual harassment of women in the ministry, death, and male/female relationships. With chapters set in Jamaica and Boston as well as the deep South, the book contains a modern interpretation of the Old Testament Book of Amos and examines Paul's view toward women within a fast-paced fictional format that looks at a modern woman struggling to make a career in ministry in the 20th century.
