I truly and sincerely pray that Rev. Smith and readers will take these words in the loving spirit with which they are delivered. The idea has such great potential, and is a story that, sadly for the modern church, needs to be told. But having said that, I must say that as an avid and voracious reader of many genres, particularly African American fiction, I am finding this book very difficult to finish. Poor grammar in the narrative, typos and/or misspellings, and an overwhelming amount of punctuation errors both in the narrative and dialogue are so terribly distracting that they are taking away from the intended message. ... There is certainly an audience for Rev. Smith's work, and I pray that her next novel displays the potential I see.
