My Thoughts:

“The Amen Sisters” by Angela Benson has a suicide, a trip to a mental health clinic, and a cheating husband all before chapter one is over. This drama centers around two sisters, their church, and its parishioners with a tough issue to deal with – infidelity.

Five years ago, Francine Amen turned her back on her family and friends to follow a minister of the Temple Church. She gave everything, including all her money. When an act so unthinkable happens, she ends up a resident of a psychiatric facility.

Three months later, she’s released. Having no money now, she must go live with her sister, Dawn, and husband, Sly.

Dawn Amen has troubles of her own too. Her husband, who is also Francine’s ex-boyfriend, has been unfaithful in their marriage. To the world though, she puts on a happy face. She doesn’t want her friends to know she couldn’t keep her husband satisfied. But behind closed doors, the couple sleeps in separate beds. She refuses to trust her husband again.

As the Amen sisters stop running from their problems and begin to understanding the true meaning of forgiveness, they find they’re not the only church members with secrets. Angela Benson doesn’t hold anything back as she deals with these real-life issues. ( )
