Book Spotlight: The Sunday Morning Wife

About The Book
The old saying is true. You never know what's going on in someone else's home. From the outside looking in, Yolanda Clarke appears to have it all. She's a beautiful woman, and her husband, Timothy, is the pastor of BrightStar Tabernacle. They seem to have the perfect life. But, looks are certainly deceiving. Yolanda has become a puppet on a string, totally controlled by Timothy. While everyone at church thinks he walks on water, Yolanda knows the person behind the mask. His constant verbal tirades, physical and emotional abuse has become unbearable. In walks Andre Hunter. He's the type of man that can make any woman forget all her troubles. His chocolate skin, pearly whites, and beautiful smile enthrall Yolanda. She has never entertained the idea of infidelity, but the abuse and lack of intimacy at home makes her adulterous affair justifiable in her mind. Andre gives Yolanda everything she's missing at home- respect, conversation, and passion behind closed doors. But, Andre is hiding secrets of his own. Will Yolanda finally climb from the abyss of despair she's lived in with Timothy and move to a brighter tomorrow with Andre? Or will she forever remain "The Sunday Morning Wife?"

It is not healthy to stay in a relationship or marriage that is doing harm to you. What go on behind closed doors are not subject to outsiders opinions. It is acts that are not supposed to be revealed to anyone. In the Sunday Morning Wife by Pamela D. Rice, readers will be able to judge for themselves if Yolanda Clarke’s environment could have been avoided. Yolanda is married to Timothy Clarke, pastor of Bright Star Tabernacle church. Pastor Clarke is loved by everyone especially his parishioners and even his beloved wife but never judge a books by its cover.

Yolanda works as a social worker counseling those in need. When one of her cases hits home Yolanda will learn to take a look into the mirror. She soon realizes that her marriage is in dire needs of help but what do you do when there are distractions leading you in another direction.

Andre Hunter is the ideal man for a woman who’s looking to be swept off her feet. Andre is intelligent, caring, and an attentive listener, which causes excitement when he meets Yolanda Clarke. The chemistry between the two is undeniable. Andre believes that they are meant for each other whereas, Yolanda knows that even though being with him feel right that it has to be wrong.

The Sunday Morning Wife is domestic violence at its worst. The Devil is always busy and he definitely is in the main characters of this entertaining book. While reading this book I went through different emotions of frustration, anger, and confusion. After finishing the book I did not know whether I wanted to feel sorry for the main character or fuss at her character. I know that it is easier said and done and readers need to put themselves in Yolanda’s shoes. I really enjoyed this book, however, there were some points that I do not believe were carried though especially toward the end of the book. Overall it is an intense book to read and I definitely recommend it to others.
