But "happily ever after" isn't that simple. When her husband hears God's call to become a preacher, Rachel Jackson Adams is distressed - she grew up a preacher's daughter, and knows how difficult life under the microscope can be for a reverend's family. But hot-headed Rachel has toned down her wild ways, and for the sake of her marriage and her two children, she is now the reluctant first lady of Zion Hill, unafraid to rock the boat with her unconventional ideas for revitalizing the church.
When her son, Jordan, begins fighting at school, Rachel turns to the boy's father, Bobby - Rachel's first love from years ago. Married now himself, there should be nothing between them except their concern for Jordan - so why does seeing Bobby again feel so distractingly tempting? With her brothers facing dramas of their own, and her father, Reverend Simon Jackson, recovering from illness, Rachel must listen carefully to discover what God truly wants for her - and to decide if Bobby is the lover of her dreams or the devil in disguise.
The drama never ends in this story about church folk, the Pastor and First Lady. This story will have you enthralled from start to finish.
