In her riveting second novel, ReShonda Tate
Billingsley -- winner of the Gold Pen Award for Best New
Author for My Brother's Keeper -- crafts a bold and
heartwarming story of family and faith that will inspire
Reverend Simon Jackson has always felt destined to lead and
he's done a good job of it, transforming his small Houston
church into one of the most respected and renowned in the
region. But while the good Reverend's been busy tending his
flock, his family's gone astray.
His nineteen-year-old daughter, Rachel, gives new meaning to
"baby mama drama." Crazy in love with her son's father,
she's wreaking havoc on the man's life, even though he's
about to marry another woman.
David, Simon's oldest at twenty-seven, has been spiraling
downward ever since a knee injury ended a promising football
career. These days he's seeking solace in drugs -- even
feeding his habit by stealing church offerings.
Blessedly, twenty-three-year-old Jonathan, a college
graduate and the apple of Simon's eye, is poised to take his
father's side as associate pastor -- or so everyone thinks.
Loretta has been a devoted wife to Simon, but she's
beginning to realize that enabling him to give more to the
church than to his children was her biggest mistake. As
things begin to fall apart and secrets are revealed, will
Loretta be able to help her husband reunite their tattered
family before it's too late?
Let the Church Say Amen is a powerful journey through
one family's trials -- and a remarkable story of
reconciliation and love.
