BOOK & AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT

FIRST LADY OR NOT BY GABRIELLE BEASLEY
$15.00
 

ABOUT BOOK: There wasn't a sweet sixteen for Crystal like most girls her age. It was bitter-sweet as she waddled around alone, pregnant, and confused. Fast-forward twenty years and Crystal is still trying to right a wrong that she shouldn't have had to fix.Determined to emend her past misfortunes, Crystal runs to the church. But instead of making God her savior, she seeks her salvation from Marcus Powers, co-pastor of Freewill Baptist Church. Marcus is the love of her life and the very vehicle that will drive her to becoming a First Lady. A title she has wanted to own for most of her life. What Crystal fails to understand is that it will take more than being married to Marcus to make her a First Lady. If Crystal doesn't learn to un-blur the lines of her faith and flesh, she'll lose way more than just her self-worth.
