Publisher's Summary

Delightfully mixing inspirational romance and contemporary fiction, Vanessa Davis Griggs’ novels are gripping emotional rollercoaster rides.

The wedding between Angela Gabriel and Brent Underwood promises to be the Birmingham event of the year - and aspiring event planner Melissa Anderson has been working feverishly to make it happen. During this hectic time, she even agrees to go out on a date with a most unlikely prospect: Marcus Peeples.

When it came to Marcus, it definitely wasn't love at first sight. But after a lovely evening together of Bible study at Followers of Jesus Faith Worship Center, Melissa has a change of heart. She learns that Marcus is divorced, a fact she can't reconcile with scripture even though she knows he's a good man and father. But when Marcus's diva ex-wife decides she wants him back, Melissa soon discovers love, divorce, and faith have quite a bit in common.

    "Love Conquers All in the Family"

    Beautiful Narration. The ending was as it should be. The Chrisitan life is to be lived by the proper interpretation in light of God's Word. Marcus backed up his arguments regarding divorce with the appropriate scriptures. It made me examine my personal views about divorce. Many have the same ideas and beliefs about divorce as Melissa did. Marcus serves as a good model for a father toward a child when there's a divorce.Other family and individual matters with resolutions are included. Recommend reading (or listening).

    "Just OK"

    This book is very "WORDY". There was a lot of information that could have been left out. It was hard getting through this one.

    "Great Learning Tool"

    This book is very enlightening. It gives some good information on divorce
    and the Jezebel spirit. The spirit of being out of order. Something I believe is a major cause of divorce. More importantly, it teaches you that if you want to really want to understand the bible you have to take the time to study history and culture of that time and the meaning of words at that time. So many Christians are lost for their lack of knowledge.
    This book , in fact this whole series is a learning tool. Take whole of it and be blessed. I'm sorry the series has ended.
