Better Late Than Never (Reverend Curtis Black #15) (Hardcover)
In this stunning conclusion to the bestselling Reverend Curtis Black series, Curtis's secret past returns in an unwelcome--but ultimately healing--visit.
Rev. Curtis Black is no stranger to scandal. Throughout the decades, he has done much in the public eye, both good and evil. But what most people don't realize is that Curtis has been hiding a horrific childhood that has affected him in countless, unspeakable ways.
His buried past resurfaces when his estranged sister becomes alarmingly ill and his youngest child, twelve-year-old Curtina, becomes the kind of problem daughter whom he never imagined she could be. This is only the beginning.
The horror of Curtis's childhood secrets, as well as Curtina's wild and rebellious behavior, takes a critical toll on Curtis and the entire Black family. All the public scandals they've experienced over the years now seem like child's play compared to the turmoil they are facing in private. Who could have known that the deepest wounds would come from within?

BOOK & AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT
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.
