Available Now! -
5 out of 5 books -

At the request of Reverend Stanly Lee, Reverend Doctor Bishop Obadiah Meshach Brook, Jr. (Dr. O) comes out of retirement to restore order at the Gospel Truth Church. They are in much need of some reorganization because of Pastor Nathaniel Thicke. When trying to restore order, some of the congregation are not happy with the direction the leadership of the church is heading and decides to leave. Dr O. is not so sure that he wants to go back into ministry. That is, until a blast from the past appears. Will he decide to head the church, or head into the arms of someone that has not let him go?

While all of this is going on, Princess Brook (Dr O's granddaughter) has decided to give her life back to Christ and write a book about her college experience. There's just one problem...she has not talked to her parents about writing the book, and she has not come to terms with her destructive relationship with Kelvin Peterson. Soon she bumps into Kelvin, who still has feelings for her and does not want to let her go this time. Will Princess be able to hold steadfast to her faith in Christ or back peddle into a life that was spiraling out of control?

Heaven Forbid is the sixth and final book in this series by Lutishia Lovely. I have read all six books, and I can say that Ms. Lovely stayed on the same path. She gives you enough detail on each character that makes you want to know more about them. She has always given good narration in her stories. Heaven Forbid contains drama, love, and redemption. I like how the author does not come off as trying to preach throughout the book, but she does hit on some key points about infidelity and forgiveness. It saddens me that the series has come to an end. But all good things must come to an end, and Heaven Forbid ends on a high note.
