I only read the first two chapters. The book was written in third person, something that I was not used to. The first story moved along rather quickly, jumping from high school to freshman in college, to graduation all in the first 3 pages. There was not enough character development for me to get hooked.
This book was "off da chain", down2earth and honest as wll as megafunny!!!
n "the village," a Virginia suburb, everyone knows and looks out for one another. Zakia Wilkes is a smart girl who goes to college and discovers she is pregnant two months after graduation. Eventually, she marries Jay, who provides her a comfortable life. Yet with all of her possessions, she still feels incomplete. In her search to fill the void, she becomes very involved in her church, at the expense of her marriage. Nikki Riley leaves the village for Atlanta after her divorce. She joins the church she has always watched on television and lands a job working in its accounting department. She also falls in love with her neighbor. Nikki is very close to her cousin Rae, who refuses to work legally. When Rae is incarcerated, she reflects on her cousin's preaching and starts a Bible study in jail. Rae's influence helps to reduce the violence amongst the women. Each woman relies on her faith to get what she needs and wants out of life and the lives of those she loves.
This is a fun fictional book about the lives of 3 different women. Each has a struggle to go through but with their faith they are able to do exceedingly beyond what they think is possible. Excellent pick me up.
