Review-Say Amen, Again

Say Amen, AgainSay Amen, Again by ReShonda Tate Billingsley

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Say Amen, Again is apparently a sequel to some other books written by Reshonda Tate Billingsley, although you don't really need to read them in order to follow this book. This one is the typical two-women-fighting-over-one-man novel, only the twist here is that the man is the pastor of a prominent church, and plus both women are pregnant with his baby. His wife, Rachel, does her best to get this mistress Mary, out of their lives.

Their story really was of no interest to me, I was really more interested in the subplot, which involved Rachel's brother Jonathan. In the previous books, he had come out as a gay man, and is now living with the ramifications of that, mainly his meddling aunt who thinks he should "pray the gay away." He is also a high school counselor and is currently counseling a confused young man whose father bullies him around about being a sissy.

While I liked Jonathan's story, as a whole I wasn't too impressed with the other story lines or characters and really have no desire to read any of the other books in this series.

  1. I trust your reviews so will pass on this series. Maybe if the main plot and subplots were unique and not the typical E. Lynn Harris (gay ramifications) or Lawson Roby (cheating church folk) story lines, then I'd give it chance. Thanks for the honest review.
