As the bishop's son

Overview

Bishop T.K. Wilson, popular pastor of the largest African-American church in Queens, New York, has decided to run for borough president. But his family values platform is on shaky ground, because the Wilson kids are giving in to the same temptations as any other young adults. And their parents have no idea what's going on behind closed doors. . .

As the bishop's son, Dante Wilson is treated like royalty. Personable and smart, he's expected to assume his father's position one day. The problem is, Dante wants to be a lawyer, and that's not the only secret he's keeping.

Dante's younger sister, Donna, is as sweet as they come, yet she isn't exactly the virginal princess her beloved daddy thinks she is. And thanks to her suspicious, ambitious mother, he's about to find that out--and more.

Just as the Pandora's Box of unwelcome surprises seems empty, it turns out that even Bishop Wilson has some skeletons in his closet. Now all the Wilsons will have to face their demons. . .and discover what family values are really about.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A pillar of the community runs for local office on a family values platform and is undone by those in his household in Weber's (Player Haters, etc.) entertaining novel. Bishop T.K. Wilson, head of the largest African-American church in Queens, N.Y., enters the race for borough president. He is a formidable candidate with an unmatched record of good works in the community, and he has the support of his devoted wife, Charlene, and their two children: Dante, a recent college graduate; and popular 20-year-old Donna. Trouble rears its head when Donna's secret affair with Terrance Reynolds, her father's protege, takes an ugly turn; meanwhile, Dante's budding relationship with Tanisha Jones, a girl from the projects who struggles to care for her crack addict mother and 12-year-old brother, rubs Charlene the wrong way. Everyone is keeping secrets, but the most devastating one-involving the troubled pasts of Charlene and the bishop himself-is revealed as the election approaches and the bishop's leadership of the church is threatened. Using rotating narrators to provide close-up accounts of events as they occur, Weber spins a lively, revelation-packed tale deepened by genuine emotion, convincing detail and smart dialogue. Agent, Marie Brown. Author tour. (Jan.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

I think that the book is a good book for teens and older people. It keeps you going. Some of his books have real life situations. I read the book in three days. If you havent read the book I recommend that you read it because it is a really good book. If you are a person who like's drama, then this is a good book to read. All of his books are good they keep you wondering whats going to happen next. When I first saw the book I thought that it was going to be bored but it wasn't. So if you are going to read it dont judge it by its cover.

This book was a great read. In fact after you read this go straight ahead and read The First Lady. You won't regret it.

Great read! Webber did a great job of dealing with issues that African Americans face in the church and he put a twist on it also.

I'd rather read Carl any day than watch TV. This book is full of surprises, twits, and laughs. I had to finish it the same day I started it.
