Life Is Never As It Seems
by J. J. MICHAELS
Paperback: 220 pages
Publisher: Genesis Press (MS) (August 5, 2005)
It releases to the public the first of August. However, her publisher sent her about 15 copies...so even though I preordered one, she also gave me one of her promotional copies....and thus far...I must say...it's a pretty damn good story.
The premise of the story is:
Lindy Lee comes from a family of preachers and secrets. Her grandfather, Reverend Perlie Johnson, like his father before him, is minister to a Baptist congregation, which reveres him. It is 1967 in Washington, D.C., and the streets and the media are filled with turmoil. Reverend Johnson intends to keep his daughter, granddaughter and congregation out of harm's way and obedient to their Christian faith. Nevertheless, Lindy receives “messages” from Mary Magdalene through visions that threaten his religious teachings and leadership of the church. And as if Lindy’s life weren’t complicated enough, she is torn between Nick who has his own secrets and the mysterious Paul that keeps appearing and disappearing from her life. Her only salvation seems to be the Awakeners, a group of New Age seekers. Or are they?
I love you mommy!!!!
