She seemed the picture of perfection, the preacher's wife. Yet it was often said, she wasn't the perfect mate. Was something amiss?
Younger, she grew up in the pastor's house. This is her story. To all, Topaz appeared the talented, dutiful daughter...but was she not?
The family desperately wanted him, the son of promise. However, they didn't want him this way...did they?

This book was juicy and riveting. It had elements that were so true to life. It was captivating and you don’t want to stop reading. I found it to be emotional and I found that the story of the preacher had so many elements of truth because I’ve had similar experiences in my life. Although a portion of it was sad, this is often times how it happens in real life. I like that ALL of the preacher’s life, the good and the bad, was revealed. April Alisa Marquette is an extraordinary writer and I greatly anticipate her next piece of work.
Dang, this lady can write! As a man who didn't go to church much as I was growing up, I always held the preacher a little higher than other men. After reading this story I still do. Only now I see pastors differently, maybe as being more human. This lady made this story believable, and she makes you understand why the preacher and his people did what they did. They made me angry some of the time, but its all good. I'm a fan. I always was, since the first book. Can't wait to read more. Too bad she can't go on Oprah because the show is gone. I'd like to see her.
