    The colorful characters from Greek mythology come alive in exciting adventures captured by the author of The House of the Seven Gables and The Scarlet Letter. Ride Pegasus, open Pandora' Box, kill Medea with her head of many snakes, join Hercules as he flexes his muscles and King Midas as he turn his daughter into gold. The stories, moral in tone, are totally riveting.

    Forgive and forget. It should be easy to do—so why don’t we do it? The father who wasn’t always there for us. The mother who punished us. The spouse who betrayed us. The children who will leave us behind. Whoever and whatever the source of hurt, there is always a path to forgiveness. But too often, instead of forgiving, too many of us live with resentments and grudges that keep us stuck, robbing us of joy, peace, and purpose.

    What did you love best about Let It Go?

    It was practical advice.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Let It Go?

    Easy to understand and to continue to follow.


    Have you listened to any of T. D. Jakes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes "Reposition Yourself Reflections" this was better because it was all him. I like to hear
    him speak, and don't care to hear it second hand.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The hole things spoke to me. However, I will be listening over and over until all
    wistom has come to a head and can be used in everyday life for me.

    People have heard of fleeting rumors about The Club. Located just outside Washington, D.C., only its members know where men go when they want to indulge the desire to share their women with a carefully selected male partner. John “Mac” McCoy resigned his membership from The Club when he married Keiley Hardin. Tempting and innocent, sweet and sexy, she would never accept Mac’s desire to share her with another man. However, Mac’s fantasies of sharing his wife haunt his dreams.
