The Next Thing is Joy: The Gospel According to Vivian Grace (Book 3)
Certain that she doesn’t want to live a life that lacks significance, Vivian Grace sets about working to empower the people in her community. She believes she’s found her true calling working as a member of the Black Panther Party in Chicago. What Vivian doesn’t count on finding is love. But Vivian’s love affair with the charismatic Black Panther Party leader, Reggie, takes a turn for the worse when his abusive side surfaces. To protect herself and her unborn child, Vivian has to commit a cardinal sin in order to escape the relationship with her life. She finds refuge in the most unlikely place and begins her long journey toward healing. If Vivian can receive God’s forgiveness and extend the same to those who have hurt her, waiting for her is a love she never imagined before. This dynamic story shows how the struggle to choose courage over fear and forgiveness over bitterness is a real but necessary fight–but one we don’t fight alone.
