Format: Paperback
At 17 years old, Zenovia Sinclair's life is a lot different from other teens. With a schizophrenic mother, Audrey, Zenovia is forced to do more of the parenting, making it necessary to scrutinize everything in order to ward of any possible embarrassing attacks. When members of the Brethren of the Sacrifice Church show up and offer Audrey a chance to start over, she is excited and ready to sign up. Fortunately for Zenovia, she finds that the children involved in the Brethren are friendly and easy to deal with, making it easy for her to finally have a semblance of a normal life with friends and hanging out while not having to monitor her mother's every single move.

Both falling into comfortable roles within the Brethren, Audrey's finally found the husband that she dreamed of 17 years prior. Unfortunately for Zenovia, Phillip, her mother's dream man, is dead set against medication and Zenovia is afraid of how her new life will deteriorate with a non medicated Audrey on the prowl.

Invested in her own drama, Zenovia is dating Emil, considered a rebel with the Brethren, and crushing on two brothers, Tristan and Justin, superstars in the Brethren. When her relationship with Emil goes further, Zenovia is treated like an outcast and is soon out of the perch. It hurts, but what hurts her more is the fact that even Audrey appears against her.

Four years later, Zenovia bumps into Justin Batiste at church. Despite his intense pursuit, Zenovia is still uncertain about them moving towards a future together. When she learns that he's cast out of the Brethren, they both must take a walk of faith and learn to get past the betrayal, hurt and pain associated with their families.

IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL by Tiffany L. Warren caught me completely off guard.

Format: Paperback
Alexander Hamilton and Malcolm X are quoted for saying "Those Who Stand for Nothing, Fall for Anything." That almost describes Zenovia except she did have a relationship with God and she knew the bible for herself. So when Charlotte and her daughter Alyssa from Brethren of the Sacrifice knocked on her door claiming to have "good news," why did Zenovia ignore her gift and decide to join along with her mother? Was it because of her mom, or the excitement of being back in church?

In search of good news, Audrey's excited about joining a new church. Zenovia has missed the choir and the preaching at their church First Gethsemane; however, what they find at Brethren of the Sacrifice Devotion Center leaves Audrey mentally unstable and Zenovia with unanswered questions and a broken spirit.

I enjoyed the cast of characters, their story, and how they were redeemed. We see Zenovia's mother Audrey, though straddled with schizophrenia, eager to find a husband and a church. What I absolutely loved about this character was that side of her which had me laughing out loud throughout the book. As quick as she would crack a joke, she would cut you smooth if you crossed her.

We met Zenovia at age seventeen, mentally older than her years, waiting for that next thing, whatever that was and looked like. I would assume that it's because she's cared for her mom for as long as she can remember. With no friends or a boy to call her own, Zenovia's grace is longer than her suffering.

Tiffany Warren opens the doors on religious rhetoric and issues in the church that don't line up with what the bible says. I believe this is the perfect time for Christian authors to shed light on non-biblical doctrine being taught and preached in the church.

Format: Paperback
At one time or other we all find ourselves standing in the midst of it all; all
that we love, all that we hate, all that we control and finally all the things
we can't control. Zenovia finds herself in that place daily, as she not only
struggles with living a teenager's life, taking care of Audrey, her
schizophrenic mother, and last but not least the visions. Zenovia aka Zee, as
well as her mother, both have visions about their lives and others. Audrey
embraces this ability; Zee does not. After years of doing everything alone,
Zee thinks God is finally giving her some help, when two members of the
Brethren of the Sacrifice show up at their door and welcome them into their
church family. The Brethren of the Sacrifice preach an uncommon version of the
Bible but that's ok with Audrey, and whatever is ok with Audrey is ok with Zee
as long as it keeps Audrey's mental state on the right track.

In the beginning, things with the Brethren was good, Zee finally has friends to
hang out with and even develops her first crush, and Audrey's vision from years
ago has come true. Things quickly change for Zee as she learns more about the
Brethren's views on everything from what school you attend, who your friends
are, future education plans, and the Brethren's views on schizophrenia.
Eventually, it's all too much for Zee and she leaves home and the Brethren with
plans on never returning. How will Zee and Audrey deal with this decision?
Will their relationship ever be the same? Will Zee ever step foot in a church
again, after her experience with the Brethren?

Once again, Tiffany L. Warren has written a thought-provoking book that puts
you in the character's shoes and lives.
