This is a GREAT read. this book will hit every emotions you have. Could not put the book down once started. This showed the test of true friendship and relationship, brought family back together. Love all the characters, and this shows you how God works in so many ways even when a person wants to question, be mad or turn their back on him. You have some many different feeling for Della until you know her story which was really powerful.

This is a WONDERFUL book!!! This book touched me on a spiritual and emotional level. This book truly helps you understand that you have to trust God's plan. It may not be easy but to have to trust that he does not give you more then you can handle.

A wee note to tell you I finished After This. Can't explain how much I identified with this book. Sweet, intriguing and filled with God's lessons. Thanks and blessings, Nancy

This is an amazing book. I don't finish a book very often because I lose interest but this book I finished in 3 days, couldn't put the book down. The book made me laugh, cry and makes you think about your past. The self reflection I experienced reading this book taught me that I was not letting go of my past life experiences and that was preventing me from moving forward. I feel a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. There are a few more issues in my life that I have to let go and I know with God's help that will happen. I am sooooooooo looking forward to the next book.

The Josiah Effect

D.L Augustine

This was my first book by this author and I really enjoyed this book. Looking at the perspective of a ten year old boy was really mind opening for me, he loved his mother but was unsure of the love she had for him, so he wrote a letter to GOD for help. I was blown away. Then you have the mother and the therapist side of the situation. A good read, something to make you think. I am looking forward to the sequel to this novel.

5.0 out of 5 starsIf you want an inspiration this is your book!

ByStubbornbullon August 12, 2016

Format: Paperback

This is my first book by this Author. I could not put it down. I read it in two days. Robin had a tough childhood which in my opinion is what made her become a child psychologist. All the trials and tribulation the characters in the book faced brought them closer to each other and God. I laughed, cried, and just was inspired by this book. I also can relate to this book and can't wait to read more from this Author. I am a member of Victorious Ladies Reading(VLR). Hopefully, one day I will meet the Author to get a autographed copy. Happy Reading!
