BETTER LATE THAN NEVER is the
final story in the Curtis Black
series. This is a series that over the years I have enjoyed reading.
The Rev. Curtis Black has been quite the interesting character over the
years involved in scandal after scandal. In this final novel, we find out
all about where Curtis came from and what his life was like. I personally
would have preferred to learn about Curtis and his background earlier
in the series. That does not excuse all the scandalous behavior of
Curtis. It just would have given me a view of what made Curtis tick.
This series is filled with drama not only from Curtis but also the women
in his life as well as his children. Ms. Roby does a brilliant job in winding
up the series. Curtis comes to terms with his buried past and his
horrific childhood and he reconciles with his estranged sister. Even
though this reconciliation with his sister is a painful experience it will
give Curtis and his sister closure and forgiveness.
Curtis and his wife Charlotte really did some scandalous things during
their marriage that were very prominent in the public eye. Over the
years Curtis has watched his children repeat his past. So when he gives
them counsel he is speaking from first-hand experience. Now in this
final novel he and his wife Charlotte have to deal with their youngest
daughter and her wild and rebellious behavior.
The Curtis Black series
proves that a person can change. When I think back over the past
novels and how this series began Ms. Roby truly changed Curtis Black
into a respectable individual. The
Curtis Black series is about repentance, forgiveness, and
ultimately, healing. I will miss this series. Ms. Roby knows how to draw
you into the drama and wonder what will Curtis Black do next? BETTER LATE THAN NEVER does not
disappoint. If this is your first time reading a novel in this series, I
recommend you read the others so you can see just how Curtis Black
In this stunning conclusion to the bestselling Reverend
Curtis Black series, Curtis's secret past returns in an
unwelcome--but ultimately healing--visit.
Rev. Curtis Black is no stranger to scandal.
Throughout the decades, he has done much in the public eye,
both good and evil. But what most people don't realize is
that Curtis has been hiding a horrific childhood that has
affected him in countless, unspeakable ways.
His buried past resurfaces when his estranged sister becomes
alarmingly ill and his youngest child, twelve-year-old
Curtina, becomes the kind of problem daughter whom he never
imagined she could be. This is only the beginning.
The horror of Curtis's childhood secrets, as well as
Curtina's wild and rebellious behavior, takes a critical
toll on Curtis and the entire Black family. All the public
scandals they've experienced over the years now seem like
child's play compared to the turmoil they are facing in
private. Who could have known that the deepest wounds would
come from within?
