DESTINY'S DIVAS is the story of three women who span three
age groups and form the hottest, new gospel group, Destiny's
Divas. They sing and share their testimonies of how God
has inspired them to live godly lives—Sierra Dixon as a
saved, celibate single twenty-something woman; Raine Omari
as a thirty-something former R&B singer now wife and mother;
and Liza Washington as a forty-something pastor's wife.
But the devil is in the details, and the details of these
women's lives don't match up to what they are singing about.
Sierra claims to be celibate but is sexually active in her
relationships. Raine talks about unconditional love as she
wrestles with her mother-in-law for control of her family.
And Liza suspects that all is not as it seems in her
husband's teen ministry, but she's fine with turning a blind
eye...for now. If any of their secrets are exposed, even to
each other, it could mean the end of their singing ministry.
With DESTINY'S DIVAS, author Victoria Christopher Murray
triumphs again. The depth and storytelling mastery in her
latest novel demonstrate why she is the grande dame of urban
Christian fiction. Sierra, Liza and Raine are real women
with real problems. Murray uses their lives and their lies
to highlight serious issues that befall women of all races,
colors and even faiths.
It's hard to say much more than that without giving away
some of the more delicious plot twists, but suffice it to
say, you will move swiftly through the pages as surprise
after surprise pops up. And when things seem blackest, for
each of these ladies individually as well as collectively,
Murray finds a believable way to tie up the loose ends,
bringing this tale to a more than satisfying conclusion,
albeit not a fairy tale one. Sometimes we have to pay for
our misdeeds, which Sierra, Raine and Liza each must learn.
Readers and fans of Murray's work can only hope we get to
visit with these women again and that the next installment
isn't too far into the future. DESTINY'S DIVAS has all the
makings of a great new series for readers who love to have
journeys of faith turned into conceivable, credible,
