SIN NO MORE

Image of 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.

Reverend Curtis Black promised his wife Charlotte and God that he would sin no more. But when his secret daughter is revealed, his celebrity ministry is threatened. Will he sin again to save his pulpit?

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)
