SIN NO MORE
Pulpit ambition runs amok in Roby's fantastic tale, but the last three chapters are rushed to a fizzling conclusion. The final church scene reads like a soap opera on cliffhanger Friday. Instead of the Blacks solving their own problems, minor characters save the day. Roby could have shared more of Curtis' spiritual struggle instead of adding more subplots.
Charlotte believes her husband is a changed man. But when his daughter's mother and her son's father continue to strain her relationship, she soon realizes that she's the one that needs to change. (Morrow, Jan., 288 pp., $23.95)
