Three sisters' struggles never see
the light of day in this church drama meets redemption story. Faith Morrell isn't a likable enough character to
follow through an entire novel, and multiple flashbacks slow the story's pace and momentum. Griggs should
put more faith in her readers' ability
to remember the Landris clan from
her previous books.

What does it take to build a church without money-hungry deacons, pulpit enemies, sibling rivalries and women committed to destroying the pastor's marriage?

Faith, Hope and Charity Morrell are characterized by their names: Hope hopes for the best; Charity believes in all good things; and Faith thinks she can do anything she wants. But when Faith joins the Followers of Jesus Faith Worship Center, her faith in herself is tested. In fact, she finds a faith greater than her own. (Dafina, May, 320 pp., $15.00)
