Farther Than I Meant to Go, Longer Than I Meant to Stay by Tiffany L. Warren

As President of Grace Savings and Loans, Charmayne Ellis is an established, polished professional. Although she has reached great success, her ridiculing mother and wise cracking younger sister won't let her forget that she is a 36-year-old, overweight, unmarried woman.

In an attempt to help, Charmayne's best friend, Lynette, is obsessed with setting her up on a series of pity-driven blind dates. When a drop-dead gorgeous man, Travis Moon, shows interest, Charmayne's caution light blinks like crazy. But out of loneliness and pressure from her family Charmayne ignores her gut feeling and gets married.

Yet instead of marital bliss, Charmayne begins to discover new things about her husband that force her to question her marriage and her faith in God.

This was a grrrreat book!!!!! It's amazing how Satan tries to set up saved women!!!! If Charmayne had just heeded to the voice of the Lord & the many signs on the wall, she would have bypassed a life of pain. We've all been there, but Thank God for MERCY!!!!!!! An easy read! I LOVE the scriptures added!!!! And Les.......OMG!!!! NO WAY!!!! I am Looking forward to reading more Tiffany Warren books!!!!!!

I absolutely love this book! It was my first read from Tiffany Warren, so I was excited to see what her writing was like. I was blown away by how much I could relate to the main character. In fact, many of the characters in the book reminded me of people I actually knew. Along with the main character, I learned a lot about life, love, and waiting on God's timing. Job well done, Tiffany Warren! Ladies, you will love this book!

What a breath of fresh air this book was! I was captured from the first paragraph and was unable to put it down. I was able to pinpoint some of my own personal concerns and learn a thing or two from the main character. I am excited about this author and can't wait to purchase her latest book!

This was a good read and had me captivated from the very beginning. I thought it wouldn't catch my interest, however, this book was very heartfelt. From beginning to the end this woman kept her faith in god and never gave up no matter what trials and tribulations she kept going through. She could not catch a break.

I LOVED THIS STORY AND THE MESSAGE IT SENDS. WHEN WE GET IN A RUSH AND TRY TO FIX THINGS OURSELF WE MAKE A MESS. WE MUST LEARN HOW TO WAIT ON GOD, AND NOT GET IN A HURRY. GOD'S TIMING IS NOT OUR TIMING. WHEN WE MOVE OUT AHEAD OF GOD WE ALSO END UP REGRETTING THE OUTCOME OF THE SITUATION. AND THIS STORY WITH CHARMAYNE WAS A PERFECT EXAMPLE. BUT WHAT IS WONDERFUL ALSO IS THAT WHEN YOU DO, FALL GOD IS YET STILL THERE TO PICK YOU UP AND RESTORE YOU. ISN'T THAT WONDERFUL????? I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO EVERYONE. ENJOY.......

This is the seocnd novel that I have read by Tiffany and it was just as good as the first. This book was a page turner and I actually wanted to break some plates at one point in this book. But when he was standing in the driveway I wanted her to tell him to stand behind the car and put it in reverse because he was such an uncaring person just wanted to live life his way. I believe this is actually the way men think they can treat women who are overweight they just sweet talk them because often these individuals will have a low self esteem and they just screw them around. Great book.

This is an AWESOME read for Christian women, all women. I love the way that scriptures are quoted throughout this book. I am a babe in Christ and I love all of the Christian fiction books. It gives you a great outlook on trusting God and leaving all the consequences to him.

I just want to go on record saying that it is such a pleasure to be able to read a book that gives reference to the bible.

This was the best book I have read in years. I truely understand where Charmayne was coming from and she let her family and friends dictate to her what she should have in life when it comes to a man. I like when she was willing to forgive herself and realized if it's meant to be. God will let it happen.

This was a really good book. Nice and simple but with a very deep meaning. I highly recommend it.

Charmayne Ellis is everything that a lot of people would like to be. Attractive, intelligent, kind hearted, a Christian with a good job. Charmayne is tired of everyone thinking that she needs a man in her life in order to be complete. Although, she's overweight, she still feels like she should have a man of her choosing. Not that she needs a man to be complete, some companionship would be nice. The pastor's wife along with her best friend, keep trying to set her up. The men they select are either rejects or haven't had a date in years. They lack in personality, are too old, or just downright ugly. Both, her mother and sister believe that she's a hopeless case, sprouting that, in order to be considered somebody YOU must be married. Without anyone's assistance, Charmayne meets Travis Moon, a fine, Christian, single, working brother. He's employed at the bank Charmayne manages. At first, she was skeptical about accepting a lunch date because of their working environment, but Charmayne decides against that. Now happy, people are looking at her, as if she has to BUY Travis. Seeking prayer and guidance from God, Charmayne has asked if Travis is the man for her. God has answered her prayers and she has accepted what the Lord has said but, is she hearing correctly? Are the signs for a GO to marry this strong willed man of God, or to let him go? Farther Than I meant To Go, Longer Than I Meant To Stay, is a very good book! I highly recommend!!!

I was hooked from the beginning. I truly sympathized with the main character. The author wrote this well as she portrayed the plight of so many black women. You will not want to put it down.
