Overview

Are the sins of the father and mother visited upon their sons and daughters? Honey Lamb,like many,is a descendant of an unfortunate legacy of molestation, addiction, murder and bad decisions. As long as she could remember, she believed the unhappiness she experienced was somehow bequeathed to her. Not realizing God places people in our lives for a purpose, she reluctantly embarks upon a journey that will open her heart to a divine inheritance. Will she accept the spiritual blood transfusion that will change her life forever or will she shun the invitation and allow her carnal familial legacy to continue to the next generation. Either way, she will never be the same!

Running AwayLike Honey Lamb, each and every one of us has baggage. Hurt, betrayal, violence and abuse. To look at Honey you do not see a troubled young woman who is weighted down by her baggage. She tries to run away from her past, but the harder and longer she runs, she finds that there is nowhere to hide. Honey has a wonderful husband, Mason, whom she loves dearly. Sadly, her past is interrupting their future. Honey knows that she can¿t hide. With encouragement, she has decided to give God a shot. The instant Honey steps into the church she feels better. Will Honey be able to release the demons of her past?"The Blood Done Signed My Name" by M. Ann Ricks is afflicting and engaging. Who hasn't wished, kept their distance, or prayed that they weren't related to certain people? While we cannot pick our family, we do need to learn to break generational curses in order to prevent harm from being carried over for generations. While you sympathize with Honey for all that she's endured, the story still is somewhat slow and you feel as if you're going in circles. Overall, however, it's a good read. Reviewed by: Carmen

Family, blood relatives are supposed to stick together through thick and thin no matter what. That is just what family does. When you find that your trust is broken with a family member, is there any way that you can repair that trust or is it just broken forever? Honey Lamb is a broken spirit. Honey is married to Mason and used to be so happy. They had the perfect marriage ~ he loved her and she loved him, just the way it is supposed to be. Every marriage has its ups and downs but when your trust has been violated and broken you are hard pressed to regain that trust. Who do you turn to for help with regaining and rebuilding that trust? Do you hope that the problems will work themselves out or do you go to someone who you know can help you get the job done? The Blood Done Signed My Name is a book that will touch your spirit because it speaks to many different situations. It is christian fiction so it does have scripture references but it also speaks of real life situations that people go through whether christians or not. You do not have to be christian/spiritual to read this book because the story will touch you either way. It is a very well written story about family, love, trust, despair and hope. This is my first read from Melissa Ann Ricks but definitely not my last.

A Book Review by Author, Deborah Hall-Branch I must say, the title alone enforced an immediate curiosity within me. “My God, if it had not been for the blood,” I privately cried out as I turned each page thirsting after VICTORY’S climatic end. The Blood Done Signed My Name is a divine Kingdom inspirational announcement that the blood of Jesus is still powerful and able to SAVE even those diagnosed terminally wounded from life’s onslaught anguish. And, who are deemed by natural man unchangeable. Honey Lamb’s pain radiated within the walls of my over shielded heart. “How could a creation that God shaped and mold together with His own hands, tagged it Mother be so cruel and hateful to the one she called daughter.” I thought as tears filled my eyes. Yet, little did Honey’s mother know, God had a plan for his little lamb. He’d saved the best for last. Although life dealt the fictitious heroine a bad hand, it is those same tragedies in our real everyday lives that have caused families to be devoured by hell’s generational assault. Some plots I could predict. Nonetheless, the author has a unique way in tantalizing her reader’s inquisitiveness to remain with the story until they learn the heroine’s fate. Will she and estrange husband Mason get back together? Is Ms. Sadie an angel sent to watch over her? Or, is there a long hidden secret? Well, I think you will have to read it for yourself. The bonus, Author M. Ann Ricks writes with a great revelatory evangelical spiritual insight guiding her readers into a greater awareness that generational curses are never to be overlooked or justified as a healthy entity. Thank God there are still those who refuse to eat the “King’s bread!”

I received a free copy of this novel for my honest review. This was a touching story of finding God even when you feel undeserving, overcoming your past, and facing your demons. Honey faced a horrible childhood and eventually ran away from home. Now 17 years later, accompanying her neighbor, Ms. Sadie, she’s returning home to assist her in finding her missing niece and so that Honey can get a break from the memories of her husband and the incident that caused him to leave her. Little does she know she will learn quite a bit about herself and the God she has been trying to avoid. Her story was so realistic; I felt a strong connection to the main characters. I loved how God was described, so loving and ready to forgive if you just ask and give him all your troubles. This is definitely an excellent book, one that will stay on my mind for a very long time.

From the very first page untilI closed the book I could not put down The Blood Done Signed My Name. I'm immediately drawn in by the main character Honey Lamb freshness and authenticity she jumps off the page . M. Ann Ricks writes with such a fluidity that the work comes off as smooth as poetry. Honey Lamb is no stranger to lifes trial and tribulation through addiction, childhood traumas, and fragile relationships you can't help but cheer for Honey Lamb. With a christian undertone of none judgement but a cautionary tone of lifes troubles Ricks writes a memorable story that will become an instant classic. The Blood Done Signed My Name is not only a fictious work of art. It is also a detailed truth of so many innocent lives of many nameless people. It doesn't matter how the story begins as long as you have the strength and faith of a muster seed to provoke change in your life. M.Ann Ricks is not a talented writer, but a life coach and I for one can't wait to read more of her work.

While I have read many books of the same genre, with a similar plot, I have to share that this text is the first, in quite a while, that effectively entertwines the entertainment of christian fiction with the absolute truth of God's Word. I found the book quite engaging, and the flow was appropriate. Although my personal experiences are not exactly aligned with Honey's, it didn't matter. I could relate to her, and the other characters, in ways that kept my interest and touched my heart at the same time. To the author, I so much appreciate your omission of the "religious fluff" that serves as a means to, I assume, entertain the reader; yet, fails to lead the believer to understand and know the true Savior.
