The big day has arrived! Starting Monday, September 19, you should begin seeing The Amen Sisters in your bookstores. Do me a favor and let me know where you spot it. Just select Comments below this message and enter the details of your sighting.
I’m excited about the story and it seems the reviewers are, too. Take a look at my Reviews & News page to see. You can read an excerpt on the Walk Worthy Press web site at Excerpt.
Here’s a brief synopsis to whet your appetite:
Francine Amen was a ministry leader with an up-and-coming church who believed she had found her true calling. She publicly renounced her family, friends and church because she felt they didn’t believe “enough” and left her hometown. But, when Francine turned against a dear friend who accused the church pastor of sexually abusing her, the woman killed herself. Guilt ridden and ashamed, Francine turns to the one person who should always be there – her sister.
Dawn Amen-Ray sticks by her sister, Francine, because she feels it is the right thing to do. Still, Dawn has her own problems. She recently found out that her husband (Francine’s ex-boyfriend) cheated on her and Dawn is NOT in a forgiving mood. Besides, Francine hurt so many people Dawn cannot see how her sister can possibly ever make it all up to them or convince them to trust her again.
Insightful, unforgettably real and compassionate, The Amen Sisters is about confronting the difficult truth, facing our painful mistakes, and reclaiming God’s abundant hope and promise.
