SB is not your typical preacher’s wife. She struts her stuff in five inch stilettos, tossing a honey blonde lion’s mane Beyoncé would envy.
Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church members are less than enchanted with their Pastor’s new wife, and his daughter blames him for marrying much too soon after her mother’s sudden death.
Weary of dodging her daughter-in-law’s southern comfort punches, SB launches her master plan, a plan of life purpose where she depends on the Lord to order her steps and save her marriage. But her best-laid plans go awry when her husband suddenly goes missing, and a local politician devises a plan to suit them both – and get himself elected to the state legislature.
Unusual and atypical relationships form between government and church officials. Old and new friends, past and present family, make The Master’s Plan a ‘must read’ for everyone struggling to find purpose!
Let me preface my review by saying, I am not one who attends church, however I do believe in the teachings of Christ who stressed the virtues of forgiveness, compassion, humility and non-judgmentalism. Now, without question, I enjoy reading books about church goers and all that can happen when communities gather under one roof. And I especially love books that allow humor to light up this subject.
Set in fictional small town, Smoothville, GA., Tullis quickly engages readers into her fiercely philosophical and vividly textured world, populated by thoughtfully drawn characters. The entertaining ensemble of well-developed citizens are woven into a creative 'head shaking' tale that reminds us all: politics and religion never make for good bedfellows.
In The Master's Plan, Stephany Tullis covers a variety of issues and emotions while throwing in unexpected twists. I highly recommend this to all readers, whether you are seeking a spiritual path or just searching for an exceptional read!
