Winner of the African American Literary Award for Fiction, Essence® best-selling author Victoria Christopher Murray delivers a cautionary tale about debt and the dangers of an overly tempting offer. Married at 17, Adam and Evia Langston have worked their way up from rags to riches. But as they are enjoying all the trappings of their success, a financial downturn leaves them teetering on the brink of disaster. And that’s when Evia’s boss makes the Langstons a fivemillion dollar offer they can’t refuse.

Yes, because it touches topics that are usually hard for people to discuss openly. I think it's a great teaching tool :-)
For me, I think Alanna was the most memorable. She seemed to have been the most optimistic. Even though she is a child she has a genuine interest in her family & their wellbeing.
This is a great read for people of faith; or people who THINK they are people of faith. It makes you examine what you truly believe. Belief is easy when life is good; but when thinks go wrong in your life, how strong is your faith then?????
I love to read and I love to listen to a good story!
I enjoyed the story.
I liked them all
No extreme reaction, but I was not surprised at the ending.....
I would definitely recommend this book because it was a very good read. This was my very first audiobook and I am hooked for life.
I can't answer this one.
The twins birthday party.
Shay Shantay because it would be fun people watching with her and it would be equally interesting to hear her conversation concerning her dislike of other people. She's such a schemer and so sure of herself, it makes me want to slap her.
Good story of love, marriage, family. A roller coaster of emotions that come along. Some parts were predictable, but it was a great listen.
yes, everything just too pat
I guess I just did not like the story or the characters. It seemed a waste of time
clear and easy to follow
I love this authors books.
I like them all.
Susan Spain brings life to this book!!
Say something about yourself!
This was a great book! I had my doubts at first, but it had me from the beginning, I did not want this book to end. The story line was awesome some time the choices we make can end badly. The Langston was a loving couple but one person can mess everything up be careful of your choices. Great title
I love this book I can say it never expected this book to be so good!
The message was moving
This is a must read
As usual Victoria Christopher Murray wrote a great book. Although at some points I wanted to reach in the book and shake Evia and then slap Marilyn, lol. I would definitely recommend this book.
