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.

Audio books are growing. I have listened to books for months now, But I prefer my books in paperback/hardback format.
this book was actually good.. I had to shake my head at unique at the end like really? if only you knew . I hope her adopted mother tell her before they do this custody thing and Nicholas talk to Lorraine becaus she is shady for to me a chhristian but they are some shady ungrateful Christians . like unique list her boys at least Lorraine couldvr done was give unique a chance to see the girls jheeze I can't wait to read part 2 well listen to it
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.
This was my first book. It was a gift.
She was emotive and funny.
When the boys died and when the girl in prison took a beating for her friend I cried so much.
The narrator brought this to life for me more than I would have thought.
Strong diction, and an honesty with the characters.
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.
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.
The story was original and great. The audio version didn't quite live up to the story. Need a more authentic voice matching the characters in the story. A lot of stops and starts during the audible story. Overall, love the message and love the heart of the story.
