Marriage Thorn: My Husband Is Not My Boaz?


The first book in the novel series introduces Lady Sherri, a southern belle by the way of the great Magnolia state. Born and raised in the heart of the Mississippi Delta, Sherri believes in the biblical principles that her preacher grandfather and outspoken grandmother instilled in her. Walking in her grandparents' footsteps, she is active in church leadership and plans to be the ideal first lady.


After years of being committed to God, at age 30, she believes that she has finally met her "Boaz" and marries the infamous Pastor Ronald from Memphis, Tennessee, who Sherri thinks to be transformed from his previous North Memphis lifestyle. But before the ink is dry on their marriage license, Sherri finds herself feeling the painful thorns of marriage and ministry.


Believing in God's design for marriage, she is determined to make her marriage work. Just when things seem to be going well, Sherri is faced with a major crisis that causes her pain like no other.  She has to make an ultimate decision that regardless of her choice it could leave an everlasting thorn in her side.
