The First Lady is the tale of a preacher's wife who learns she's dying and vows to find her husband another woman. There is no shortage of ladies who want her man, but will she be able to find a suitable replacement among the conniving church women?

Carl Weber is the New York Times best-selling author of such fan favorites as So You Call Yourself a Man.

What the Critics Say

"Weber keeps the pacing brisk and loads the narrative with enough surprise turns to keep readers guessing to the end." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Carl Weber Rocks!"

    The First Lady was an awesome listen. If you've read any of Weber's books, you know how dysfunctional (aka normal) everyone is and this book had it's share! It was hilarious!! The book had so much humor and drama I hated for it to end. If you're not familiar with Weber's books, give this one a try - you won't be disappointed!

    "Hallelujah!"

    I'm a Christian and I've been in church all my life, but I know how "holier than thou" church folks can be. Kudos to the author for portraying REAL people with REAL issues trying to serve God. The audio production was outstanding! The ensemble cast brought this story to life and it was a joy to listen to each character. Very well done by all. I recommend it highly!

    When bishop T. K. Wilson married Monique instead of Lisa May.

    This entire series was full of drama and static. I loved it.

    "Hard to believe..."

    The story was easy to listen to, but the plot of it was a little carried away to me... IF there is a man out there that is that HOLY... show me him! I found myself drifting off...

    Would you listen to First Lady again? Why?

    Yes, I laugh so much as I read and come across the message, let go of your past in order to move on in life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of First Lady?

    When Lisa Marie was struggling b/c Monic got T.K. to have lunch w/ her and it caused Lisa Marie to throw an attitude making her lose a point.


    What does various bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Each narrator gives the characters they play so much personality which then gives the book so much enthused life.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I if had the time I would have.

    I love to listen good books. African American urban literature is my favorite. I hope to see them in more BoGo and discount sales.

    I wish i was more familiar with the writings of this author so i can listen to his books in chronological order! This is my 2nd Carl Weber book and i love it! The story line was awesome and i could not have predicted the ending which made it even better. Once i started it, i couldn't put it down! I'm sold, on to "The Preachers Son"!
