I was fascinated with the startling real characters whose lives pry into the secret places of the heart. I was also intrigued with the stunning descriptions and shattering honesty. The Church Ladies seem so true I was sure I'd run into them at our next prayer meeting. A fresh look behind the scenes of the church's surface.

I am a PK (Pastor's Kid) of 27 years and found this book to hold so many truths. Even though my faith differs from the one of Poppy, I could see so many similarities to my family's life. I laughed and cried right along with Poppy. I hope that Ms. Sampson comes out with another book soon.

Lisa Samson seems to have the ability to look inside my heart and drag out my innermost thoughts, and she does it with such a beautiful writing, and with such dry humor, I don't even mind. The Church Ladies forced me to look past the petty differences in my own church, and find the secret pain hidden in each heart. It helped me learn the lesson of forgiveness with new grace.

Lisa Samson may as well quit writing right now because I don't know how she will ever top The Church Ladies. Samson's irresistible town of Mount Oak is Mitford with a glorious edge; and the characters who populate her novel are as familiar as the man or woman who occupies the pew beside you each Sunday morning. Perhaps, as I did, you'll even catch a glimpse of yourself within the pages. This captivating, precious story of grace could not be more beautifully told.

Poppy Fraser is consumed with guilt because she happily remembers the times in Baltimore when her husband Duncan was a computer geek reeling in some healthy cash. To her those were the good old days even if her spouse worked seven days a week and rarely had time for her or their children. However, his mid-life crisis was not a younger, taller, blonder siren. It was worse to Poppy as Duncan found God. This led to a radical change in lifestyle for the Fraser family.

Duncan is now the Pastor of the Mount Oak Church, but Poppy fails to adjust to the role of pastor¿s wife. Instead she finds the petty rivalries of the congregation and the jobs expected of her quite tedious as if she is a modern day Job. Another action also fills Poppy with remorse that she failed her spouse in other ways.

THE CHURCH LADIES is more than just a well written cheerleading inspirational because of the insightful Poppy. Although racked with guilt and remorse, the intrepid Poppy tries to do the right thing even if she fails and is not always righteous or sisterly. She is human and makes Lisa Samson¿s CHURCH LADIES into an enthralling modern day tale that readers of contemporary fiction will find quite entertaining.
