Monica Harris-Day's perfect world begins a downward spiral the afternoon she comes home to find her husband in bed . . . with another man. After confronting Kevin, her husband of two years, Monica discovers he's had a lifelong struggle with homosexuality that began at the age of ten after he was molested by a deacon in the church.

For years, Kevin has sought deliverance, crying out to God to make him straight. He explains his deceit by saying that he thought he had truly been delivered when he married Monica, but was afraid to share his past with her for fear she wouldn't marry him. Kevin begs Monica's forgiveness and wants to save their marriage. He is convinced that God has indeed delivered him from the spirit of homosexuality and that the one-time mistake was just his past coming back to haunt him.

Their pastor offers them marital counseling, but Monica suspects he's really concerned about maintaining his mega-ministry. The church has grown to 10,000 members since Kevin became the minister of music. When the pastor swears them to secrecy and urges Monica to stay in the marriage, she thinks Bishop Walker isn't willing to risk the potential scandal and church split that would be caused if the truth were leaked to the congregation.

My Soul Cries Out is a compassionate look at the issue of Christians struggling with homosexuality and the redemptive power of God to bring deliverance.

My Soul Cries Out is a powerful redemption story about Monica and Kevin that on more than one occasion moved me to tears. I loved how the author wasn't afraid to tell it like it is when it came to internal thoughts, especially the skank ho references to certain women. Hilarious! The author masterfully wrote about Monica's rage the way it might really happen and didn't soften the issues for fear of offending the reader. This is real life trauma and heartache! Monica was a very flawed character but the author did such a fantastic job of growing her in her relationship with the Lord and with others that I couldn't help but love her. I just can't say enough good things about this book. Kevin's characterization was so well done that I can honestly say I haven't read any novel highlighting the pain that comes from childhood abuse that was better at showing it than this one. And I've read a lot of them. You can't help but have compassion on Kevin when he reveals his struggles and you see how even the church had betrayed him by not protecting him. The way Kevin and Monica's relationship developed throughout the story is proof that God can use anything--even the most horrible sin or mistake--to make us more like Him. In addition to the main story, there were several subplots regarding redemption that were both believable and moving. The story of Alaysia's quest for peace and redemption was perfectly done and complimented the main theme of My Soul Cries Out. True-to-life, the comments made by an unbeliever can often be used to turn the struggling Christian's life around. Oh, and the ending gave me the happy shivers. I SO loved this story and can't wait to read the next book from this author, who is even more beautiful than the model on the cover.

Sherry Lewis has bravely taken a sensitive subject, a controversial subject, a heartbreaking subject and woven a tale that will make every reader examine her own heart. Sherry has the gift of writing fiction that makes you think. The main thread of the story is the devastation of a young Christian woman who discovers her husband is bisexual, something she never knew until she came home and found her husband cheating on her with another man. Another thread is the corruption in this young couples church. Corruption in high places. Corruption in the very people who should be there to help them, to protect them. My Soul Cries out is a must read. I highly recommend it.

Kevin and Monica met while in the church. They dated for two years and have been happily married for two years. They tell each other everything, well, not everything. Kevin has had a secret for years. One day Monica comes home unexpectedly and finds him in bed with another man! Secrets out! Searching for help in dealing with her recent revelations, Monica reaches out to their minister, Bishop Walker. In talking to Bishop Walker, Monica learns that the minister wasn't SURPRISED by what happened, but he just wanted to know WHY it had it to come out now. Kevin was the minister of music. He brought in large crowds every Sunday. At a total lost, it seems as if everyone Monica's believed in has failed her. 'My Soul Cries Out' by Sherri Lewis is a quick and very funny read that deals with real life situations. There are situations for each and every one of us who say we are SAVED and how we react to a lot of things. Not just situations within the church, but in our everyday walk. I truly enjoyed this book and recommend it for all readers.

Sherri L. Lewis' novel 'My Soul Cries Out' was a book I couldn't put down until I finished. It was just plain ol' excllent. In her book she dealt with a number of real issues that affect us all in some form or fashion. She addressed the issues that many are affraid to address in the church sometimes. She did a wonderful job of bringing each of her characters to life while telling the story. Thanks Sherri!!!

I enjoyed this book. If you want to read something that will keep your interest, never boring get this book!! I believe the writer touch a tabu subject that many people face or scared to face. But she addresses and handle it with elegance and grace. As I was reading my heart went out to Kevin and Monica. I felt like I was part of their new family.
