Overview

The congregation at the Freedom Temple Church of God in Christ doesn't know what to think when their pastor, Bishop Lance Howell, returns from a vacation in Jamaica with a wife in tow.

As if Lady Elect Arykah Miles' false eyelashes, scarlet red fingernails, and fishnet stockings aren't flashy enough, the blond wigs and sky-high stilettos she wears send Mother Gussie Hughes and Mother Pansie Bowak into panic mode.

The mothers of the church don't take too kindly to the fact that Pastor Howell chose to marry outside of the congregation. One look at Lady Arykah and the mothers know that she isn't likely to be controlled. Arykah proves that to be true when she refuses to tone down her attire.

Determined to oust Lady Elect Arykah Miles, the mothers put a plan in motion to show Arykah how much she isn't liked or wanted. An all-out war ensues, and the church mothers are willing to try some pretty devious antics to get rid of Arykah. What they don't know is that Arykah is from the streets, and she fought hard to get to where she is. She's ready to prove to the whole congregation that, like it or not, she's here to stay.

Great read! Added this author to my must read authors list. I can't wait for her next one to drop...Damsels in Distress. MitziD

I loved this book. I could really relate to the themes of living saved, it's a daily struggle, dealing with the drama of "church mess" which has nothing to do with serving God, and wanting to be loved. I don't know how believable the louibouton [spelling?] was or the extreme way the women sought to get rid of the first lady, but it's fiction and I found it entertaining. Lots of lessons to be learned for Daughters of Zion, as Christian fiction should do....so support this author. I'm glad I did.

This book had me laughing and crying so hard. That first lady is like none you have ever seen. She is too full of life and spunk to be kept down regardless of the shenanigans of the church mothers. $10 is a bit stiff for a kindle book though. Yes, I bought the kindle version @ amazon, so Barnes and noble, you need to get with it since all you have is the paperback!

I really enjoy this book, I love the Love the bishop had with his wife! Also I like Arykah she was no nonsense! The mothers of the church were demons, and down right evil! Only thing I did not like was the ending. Has to be another book for this story can't leave us hanging.
