Editorial Reviews

This book is a must read!!! I could not put it down. Not only was it a great fiction book, but the spiritual messages/meaning were powerful. I am sure if you read this book, there will be characters you will be able to connect with personally. Allyson was able to capture the audience in her writing with the ability to provide a 3-dimensional perspective about family, relationships, and a spiritual connection to God. It was great to see the author have characters that were flawed even though they were religious and spiritual, which allowed the reader to imagine being Joy, Angel, Lester, or any of the other characters. The book captivated my attention from the beginning. WELL DONE!!! What are you waiting for- get your book today!!! --- Erica LS, AmazonThis debut novel chronicles the emotional and spiritual growth of the heroine, Joy, in a way that is relatable to the reader. This quick read will evoke conversation and debate, do I let go or do I hold on. The author vividly tells a story of a family whose faith is tested from a unique perspective. I enjoyed reading In The Name of The Father. With elemental styles reminiscent of Bridgette Jones' Diary and James Baldwin's Go Tell It On The Mountain, this book is hard to put down. I highly recommend this work for book club discussion. --- Kimberly W., AmazonI was truly blessed by how the author of this well written book was able to touch my heart. The family she portrayed reminded me of similar families i know who are going through the same thing. I loved how she focused on forgiveness from the wife. Women do tend to forgive more. I can't wait for the sequel. --- Deborah J., Amazon
