Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Even though Roxanne, Veronica, and Alisha are as different as three sisters can be, their combined talents shine in the pop-gospel group their parents, Rocky and Delilah, helped them form. Although Rocky’s death affected his wife and daughters deeply, Delilah’s eye for business has brought new success. When they find out that Delilah’s Daughters has made it to the final round of a popular singing competition, they can’t imagine how quickly the entire family’s lives will turn upside down. A solo contract from a prestigious record label threatens to break up the group, and when new paramours and old lovers enter the equation, Delilah and her daughters have to figure out if the cost of success is truly worth the price. This sweetly tender story of one family’s attempt to navigate the rocky waters of stardom focuses on the importance of loyalty, sacrifice, and second chances. Benson’s intimate knowledge of the music industry is evident, and her charming, inspirational novel will appeal both to fans of Martha Southgate and loyal Behind the Music viewers. --Stephanie Turza

Review

“A talented author.” (Library Journal (generic quote))

“A great read.” (Austin Weekly News)

“[Benson’s] themes will resound with many readers and her portrayal of a newly reformed, albeit occasionally backsliding, sinner is masterful.” (Booklist)

“With characters you can’t help rooting for, Up Pops the Devil is a wonderful story about hope, faith, and redemption—the kind of story we can all learn valuable lessons from.” (Kimberla Lawson Roby, New York Times bestselling author of Sin No More)

“A wonderful twist on a story that’s as old as the ages—conflict and competition between siblings—with scandal and suspense added to the mix. An entertaining, enjoyable novel that deserves to be on every bestseller’s list.” (Victoria Christopher Murray, bestselling author of Too Little, Too Late)

Delilah’s Daughter’s is a captivating story from the beginning to the breathtaking end. (Romantic Times BOOKclub, 4 1/2 stars)

An inspirational story about the allure of fame and the faith that binds a family forever . . .

Delilah Monroe has done everything in her power to keep her three daughters strong since the death of her husband. And a big part of that connection is their singing group, Delilah's Daughters. Veronica, Roxanne, and Alisha each have their own unique sense of self, but they all share the dream of Delilah's Daughters hitting the Billboard charts.

Now, just as they enter the final round of a national talent show, a record producer approaches Veronica with the promise of fame . . . if she goes solo. Then the man Delilah has always leaned on wants more from her than just friendship, and someone from her past comes calling with a shocking secret. Will Delilah be able to hold her family together?

I really liked this book.. it was definitely full of drama which is always interesting!
It took me a little while to get into it but after I did I finished it pretty quick. I think Veronica, Roxanne, and Alisha were all relate-able. Delilah as well. This family is full of secrets. It definitely makes you think of what you want and is it worth risking your relationships in the process. Do you really want it that bad?

It was a great read! I'd definitely read more from Angela Benson!

Delilah’s Daughters is about the Monroe family and their trials and tribulations through life. It starts out with three sisters wanting to become the next big gospel group. Things didn’t turn out exactly how they dreamed. After a devastating blow one sister leaves the group to become a solo act. Another sister throws her morals out the window for a man. The baby sister found out everything about her childhood was a lie and her mother was at the helm of it. The real question is can the Monroe’s survive all this and become a loving family again?
This is a faith based book. It gently takes you through right and wrong without beating you over the head. It has been awhile since we have heard from this author. Glad she is back.

Delilah's Daughters
Angela Benson
Morrow, Jan 28 2014, $13.99
ISBN: 9780062002716

Delilah and Rocky Monroe cherish their three daughters (Roxanne, Veronica and Alisha) even as they encourage them to use their God-given musical talent to make Delilah's Daughters the most popular Gospel group in the country. When Rocky dies, his four females grieve their loss. He angelically watches his beloved "harem" while his widow pushes their adult children to try harder to produce a hit that makes it onto the Billboard charts in honor of their late dad.

The siblings bring different talents to Delilah's Daughters; as Roxanne has the best voice; Veronica the best dance moves; and Alisha the best songwriting skills. They compete as a trio at the annual Gospelfest. Veronica's husband Dexter has plans for his wife to become famous as a solo and leave behind her sisters while Delilah's past threatens to pull down the pillars of her family.

Delilah's Daughters is an exciting inspirational family drama starring four fully developed unique females and a touch of whimsy with Rocky the angel looking over his beloved. Character-driven by each member of the quartet seeking a different life goal; reader will relish the Monroe brood as love proves to be a second hand emotion (nod to Tina Turner) to faith in God and family loyalty hammered by disingenuous ambition.

I really enjoyed the drama in this book. The relationships, the secrecy, the guilt, the lies and the love all make for an intersting read. Making mistakes is a part of human life but so is forgiveness. Makes you appreciate family, even with all the drama!!!!
