Publisher's Summary

Out of all the divas at New Day Temple of Faith, Unique has to be the most colorful one - she and her mother, Lorain, that is. Never one to hold her tongue in the name of keepin' it real, it's no surprise that Unique has not been saved all her life. It's safe to say that Lorain wasn't born on the church pew either. Let the church folk tell it, the apple hasn't fallen too far from the tree when it comes to Unique.

Lorain - once known as the tight skirt, V-neck blouse, too much makeup-wearing leader of the New Day Singles Ministry - claims she's there to look out for her daughter and try to keep her in check. But how in the world does Lorain think she can even begin to keep her daughter on the straight and narrow with her own crooked life? Some might say Lorain has failed miserably as a mother when Unique ends up in jail for three counts of murder. One who would agree is the woman who raised Unique while Lorain was out living her life freely.

As an all-out war takes place between Unique's birth mother and the woman who raised her, will Unique have any support while she fights for her life behind bars? Will all forsake her while they are too busy with their own agendas? Only God holds the answer to this one.

    Story
    "God saves those who let him"

    The character Unique was very relatable, especially since I work, as a social worker with women who are in this same sinking boat. I admire her for her courage and conviction, to do the right thing.
    The narrator's voice was pleasant and easy to listen to. She immediately drew me into the story.
    I would recommend this book to my co-workers. I believe they would enjoy it.

    "First Audible Book"
    Where does And You Call Yourself a Christian rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was my first book. It was a gift.


    What about Cindy CA Pereira’s performance did you like?

    She was emotive and funny.


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

    When the boys died and when the girl in prison took a beating for her friend I cried so much.

    "Enjoyed The Book & The Narrator"
    Would you consider the audio edition of And You Call Yourself a Christian to be better than the print version?

    The narrator brought this to life for me more than I would have thought.


    What about Cindy CA Pereira’s performance did you like?

    Strong diction, and an honesty with the characters.

    "Amazing story!!!"

    This book had me in tears. It definitely makes you think. Unique went through so much but she never lost faith in God. If you haven't read this book, I suggest you do.

    "Don't pass the test & you have no testimony."

    You cannot faint. One must be encouraged & strong in The Lord. With the type of trials in this story; you must have faith.
    Don't pass the test & you won't have a testimony.
    L.B.

    "Would have been pretty good"

    The book seems like it may be pretty good, but the narration is absolutely terrible! Sounds in the background, repeated words, unnecessary pauses, mispronounced words, etc. If there had been one or two mistakes I could have excused it. I'm sure it has to be taxing to read so much for so long. BUT this book seems amateurish at best. I'd recommend just buying the book and reading it.
