Every time a new title is released by author Victoria
Christopher Murray, I get excited. I am particularly
thrilled when the story involves the character Christian
fiction readers most love to hate, Jasmine Cox Larson Bush.
SINS OF THE MOTHER finds Jasmine Bush firmly entrenched as
the first lady of City of Lights, one of the largest
churches in New York City. Despite the many missteps and
devious actions in her past, Jasmine is finally at a point
in her life where she's come to know God and is trying to do
good... but now evil finds her.
Child abduction. The most feared evil of every parent on
the planet. When five-year-old Jacqueline is abducted,
Jasmine's world falls apart. She and Pastor Hosea Bush
invest every ounce of their being in finding their daughter
and protecting their son, their relationship and their
relationships with God and others stretched to the point of
breaking. It looks like they will make it though, until
Jasmine decides that Jacquie's biological father, Dr. Brian
Lewis, cares more about her daughter and she turns to him
for comfort, just as he is trying to win back his ex-wife,
The suspense of whether Jacquie will be found keeps the
story moving at a fast yet taut pace. Jasmine is tested and
tempted in ways that make the reader want to understand but
also want to tear out hair. Not now, Jasmine, not now that
you've finally seemed to get things right! I can't say much
more without giving away the amazing plot twists and the
satisfying ending, but I will say that SINS OF THE MOTHER
is Victoria Christopher Murray (and Jasmine) at her best.
Murray again delivers her incredible storytelling ability in
another captivating plot filled with provocative characters
on an unsuspecting faith journey. I look forward her next
book with much anticipation.
Have the sins of the mother come upon the daughter?
Jasmine Larson Bush is finally living a drama-free life.
She's left her lying, cheating, stealing stripper days
behind and is standing by her husband's side as the first
lady of one of the largest churches in New York City. The
Bushes have been blessed with the best of everything
including two lovely children.
But just when Jasmine has committed her life completely to
God, her daughter Jacqueline is kidnapped from a mall the
day after Thanksgiving. The police and the church community
join in the frantic search to find the four-year-old. As the
days pass without any sign of her daughter, Jasmine begins
to crack under the strain and turns to Brian Lewis,
Jacqueline's biological father, for solace.
Has Jasmine's past finally caught up to her? Will her
daughter be found or will Jasmine pay the ultimate price?
