THE BISHOP'S DAUGHTER
Genre: Inspirational, Multicultural
This is a light, enjoyable read with liberal use of scripture and moral tidbits thrown in for good measure. There's a lot of humor to break up the tension from the drama in these characters' lives. Told from both Darrin's and Emoni's perspectives, the story also has the commentary of Darrin's blog to keep the narrative moving. Their love story is realistic, sweet and, ultimately, satisfying.
Darrin Bainbridge is a freelance journalist on a mission to expose "celebrity" minister Bishop Kumal Prentiss as a fraud so that he can make a name for himself and prove his worth to his father. Upon Darrin's first visit to Freedom of Life Church, he meets Emoni Prentiss, the bishop's daughter, and is smitten. Darrin finds the scandal he's looking for, but he also finds salvation and has to make a choice. He struggles to make things right with Emoni and become the man she deserves.
