Wanda B Campbell blog tour of Illusions with giveaway

After three years of marriage, Denise Hightower discovers that her husband, Pastor Bryce Hightower, has a secret addiction that not only jeopardizes his marriage, but impairs his ability to effectively preach the gospel.
Yielding to pressure from her mother and her husband, Denise agrees to keep his addiction a secret, although her self-esteem plummets. Her life as the perfect First Lady is falling apart at the seams. Denise suffers in silence until she is confronted with the addiction from a trusted member of the church.

Self-centered and determined to uphold his pastoral image, Bryce is oblivious to his wife's emotional state. He's convinced that he can overcome his "little problem" on his own, so he rejects the spiritual help God sends him. But when his secret is discovered, will he be able to come clean with himself, God, and his congregation before he loses it all?For more information about Wanda, visit her at wandabcampbell.net.

After reading the Prologue I was wondering if I what I had gotten into with this book it was confronting but it had my interest. As I read more of the story the more I wanted to know what would happen next. The subject matter is very relevant and I had to know what Wanda would do with the story. I appreciated how Wanda did deal with this issue and what happens was interesting to see. This is a subject many don't talk about but I know from talking with friends alot have the same addiction and I can see this book being a great help to many dealing with the issue from both sides of the fence. Thanks Wanda for a frank look into a not so nice subject.

4.5 our of 5.

What an interesting book this sounds like. Shows that it doesn't matter to who but addiction will hit anywhere. I'd love to get entered in the contest and win this book.

How much does that sound like all of us, thinking we can deal with things on our own (and failing). Looks like a wonderful book. Bless you!
