It's amazing how the author was able to make the reader feel they were living her pain in losing her child, anticipation in searching, and joy in finding him. There are few books where one can't wait to know the ending and be so moved by the outcome. According to Plan is one of them.

It makes one soul search into the purpose of our existence and ponder the decisions we've made and it's comforting to know "a way will be made" as long as we are determined and persevere though appearances all point to the contrary.

Thank you Marquita for sharing your story and the journey to yourself that's reaffirmed for me there are no mistakes in life.

Marquita Kinard has written a sweet symphony of love, loss, and joy. Her prose is lyrical in style but dense in capacity as she narrates the truth about the sorrowful joy of her journey, even when the price seems unspeakable. I am SO grateful for the generosity of her honesty. She wears the courage of an artist with such humility and grace that I could not help but read and be inspired to stay alive for my own life.
With so much beauty and musicality, Marquita reminds us that dreams are never, really disremembered, for though they may appear deferred dreams can be realized in their divinely appointed time.
Marquita's memoir is a "must-read" for all who seek the strength, courage, and wisdom to realize their freedom. It is a tour de force of spirit and hope.

It isn't often one has the oportunity to really look into the raw emotions of an individual. In this well written personal offering Marquita has done just that. I,for one, just didn't realize how consuming a search can be and realize now how many nuances of personal experience can exist. Thank you Marquita, for sharing. Your book is a must read for all who want to "really feel" an authors personal experience.

This book reminds me once again that there are no mistakes in the Divine Plan for my life.

I have always wondered what it would feel like to give up a child at birth and this mother's story came too close for comfort. How does one carry that pain through all those years unless Love makes it bearable? I finally understand Ella Wheeler Wilcox's statement, "passionate Love is pain's own mother."

Wonderfully, Love triumphs in the end - Love always finds a way.

What a beautiful read. This small compact book brings Love, pain, laughter, inspiration and Joy in a bundle tied with a blue ribbon.

I highly recommend this book to both women and men as a reminder that the Divine Plan is active in us all.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As an A.M.E. pastor's wife and daughter, I found this book to be incredibly relatable and inspirational. I want to thank Ms. Kinard for allowing herself to be so honest, vulnerable, and exposed, which is difficult to do as both a preacher's wife or preacher's child. She took me back to a time when pastor's wives were close and supportive, etc., and also gave insight into some of the particular difficulties and isolation that we feel.

I was blessed as a child to know Ms. Kinard. She and her former husband were friends of my parents. Her beauty, sense of humor, kindness, smile, and wonderful vocal ability, never remotely hinted at the secret she was holding onto and the hurt she was evidently silently experiencing.

I am happy her story has had such a wonderful ending and I anxiously await the sequel.

I highly recommend this book. It is a beautiful story, beautifully and honestly told.
