THE AMEN SISTERS
In this novel about modern-day
problems and betrayal, the conflict
is excellent and the characters superb, especially Mother Harris. This is an outstanding tale of testimony.
Francine is devastated when her friend commits suicide. Her shock and her fear that she could have stopped it lead to a stay in a mental health clinic. When she returns home five years later, she finds that life is almost as she left it. She learns to deal with anger, helps a young girl searching for her father and starts forgiving herself for both real and imagined sins. During the upcoming months, she finds that forgiveness can
be found by following God's will. (Walk Worthy, Jan., 354 pp., $13.99)
