He'll Never Forsake You 28 Dec 2009
By Donnica Carter - Published on
Format: Paperback
Pastor Jerome Tyler "JT" Thomas has many secrets that come to life in Forsaken by Vanessa Miller. He has been living a life of sin and that life has finally caught up with him. After a tragedy led him to one night of crime, he decided to live his life according to God's will. Bishop Turner had a great influence on helping JT become pastor. He also introduced him to Cassandra. Life could not be any better until heartbreak entered their marriage. He thought God had given up on him and forsaken him. His trust faltered and JT did not know how to handle it. He began turning to other things and cheating on his wife, Cassandra, with different women in his congregation. Cassandra puts up with all she can. When the women become bold and start to threaten her family, she has to pull out. Will their marriage withstand JT's infidelity?

Miller knows how to pull you in immediately with her great descriptions and character development. There are several twists to the plot that will keep you turning the pages. I cannot wait to read the other books in this series. If you enjoyed the Rain and the Storm series, you will definitely enjoy this one.

Forgive and Forget? 18 Nov 2009
By Michelle Stimpson - Published on
Format: Paperback
For such a serious topic, I found myself cracking up at several parts in this book. I have read other books where husbands are acting crazy, but I think what I most enjoyed more about this story was that while there clearly were good guys and bad guys, throughout the whole book, I kept trying to decide which side JT (the husband) was on. One minute I liked him, the next minute I was ready to hurt him myself (no need for Jimmy or that good and throwed-off Vivian). I'm glad to know that there will be a sequel because JT is still in the dog house with me! Great job, Vanessa!

Coming Full Circle 30 Sep 2009
By On Assignment - Published on
Format: Paperback
There are times in our lives when we cannot see daylight even when all the lights are on. So it is for Pastor J.T. Thomas.

Forsaken by Vanessa Miller brings its readers into the tumultuous life a man of the cloth whose fabric is riddled with holes of his past and current indiscretions.

Those indiscretions will prove heartbreaking and extremely dangerous for him and his wife. How the couple will handle the hardships of `roosters coming home to roost' is one that will provoke a myriad of emotions.

From beginning to end, the manifestation of how we touch others lives is vividly shown.

Men Of God Always Tell The Truth. Right! 13 Oct 2009
By The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers - Published on
Format: Paperback
FORSAKEN by Vanessa Miller is JT and Cassandra Thomas's story of love and forgiveness. JT is a minister and has a large church featured on television Sunday mornings. He is a very charming man and many women would love to have him. Cassandra lost one baby, which shattered both of them, and now has a three year old son and is pregnant again. She is very much in love with JT - until the phone calls begin. She has suspected him of messing around on her but now she knows for sure and the fighting begins. She tells him to get out of her house. He refuses because he says it's his house. The drama doesn't stop there. One of the women he's been seeing is a complete nut and she begins to act like it. Another has severe issues and dumps a load on Cassandra and JT. Their lives are torn to pieces. Also, Cassandra finds out some information about her family from JT that blows her away. It seems everyone has dirty little secrets they've kept hidden for years, such as why JT has a limp and a scar on his thigh.

Vanessa Miller has written a true page turner. I couldn't put it down. Every time you think things were going to settle down, new drama surfaces. The characters are well drawn and it is easy to see why they do what they do. I'm sure it will have many people giving their preachers second looks.

When I tell you that this book was written under the anointing, please believe me! It's not your typical novel/fiction in which it just tells a story to appease the readers or conveys a message that readers can relate to. It does that and more! It KEEPS the presence of God in the book and actually causes a spiritual uprising in the reader (well it did in me). My soul was blessed by reading the story of someone who once was so connected with God but because they allowed the enemy to seep into their thought pattern, they lost faith & trust in God and this resulted in them feeling FORSAKEN. But through it all, the main character was convinced that no matter what it took, he was going to regain his position back in the Kingdom.

I also love how the author ends her books with a heavenly take on the matter. She always depicts the reaction of the angels in heaven from how the main character transforms their life.

Man, again, I was truly blessed by this and look forward to the next book in this series...FORGIVEN
