"The Other Side of Divine" by Vanessa Davis Griggs....
"Full of crazy church politics and a huge cast, Griggs keeps this on-going story alive by addressing the challenges of living by Biblical rules with homespun humor." --Publishers Weekly Paris Simmons-Holyfield is finally pregnant with the baby she's dreamed of for so long. There's just one complication: she's not sure who the father is. Apparently, after a night of drinking with her ex-coworker and ally Darius Connors, it could be him. Considering her husband's track record, chances are it is. Still, Paris prays it's not Darius, and decides to keep quiet about her worries. Especially because Darius isn't ready to give up on his crumbling marriage...
Meanwhile, after a battle to keep her adopted daughter and an ugly confrontation with Paris's family, Gabrielle Mercedes has finally found love and happiness. But when her father shows up, paroled from prison, she fears she's in for another round of trouble. As all three navigate the path from sin to redemption, can they forgive their way to the other side?"
What I enjoyed about "The Other Side of Divine"....
This was another great read from this author...which was a continuation of 'The Other Side of Dare' novel and with the ending of this novel gives us a good ending. The characters... Gabrielle, Miss Crowe along with many others really gave this series and us the readers a wonderful amazing read .
I loved how this author gives the reader a knowledgeable scripture before each chapter only delivering to her readers a wonderful novel that give us the 'Word of God' ... through 'Strongholds, forgiveness, faithfulness, resisting temptation to love dedication and respect.'
I would like to thank this author for such a wonderful spiritual read.
The ending to "The Other Side" series was pretty good. I enjoyed it. It has good a good number of suspenseful storylines/events that kept me plugged in and listening.... This series is bible based and therefore prayer and faith in God's blessings were cleverly woven and positive outcomes were abound, somebody even came back from the dead! Well, not truly dead but was able to tell all the stories that you hear in the media when someone says they died and lived to talk about it (i.e.: seeing the light, seeing dead relatives, looking down on the scene while the doctors are trying to save their life, etc.). This may be TMI but I don't think that it will deflect from the enjoyment of the story because anyone can see the "return from the dead" coming anyway. Narrator did a great job with as many as 5 or 6 characters in conversation at one time.
Highly reccommended that readers add the book and audio to their collection. Ms. Griggs as usual has created a masterpiece.
Paris, and Darius were my favorites, Shari Peele really brought all the characters alive.
The entire book as a whole was great
Can't wait for the next novel
