Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In the latest loving church spoof from G'Orge-Walker (Sister Betty! God's Calling You, Again!), Sister Betty and her fellow evangelists get shipped off to Las Vegas to attend the evangelical Mothers Conference. After Betty and her two nemeses, Mother Sasha Pray Onn and Mother Bea Blister (about whom the Reverend Bling thinks to himself Doggone Alzheimer's gonna make those two old crones destroy my place of business), arrive with much hullabaloo, Bea spots someone she recognizes but can't place. The narrative then shifts to Zipporah, a beautiful homeless woman, and G'Orge-Walker expertly balances touching emotion with the ladies' antics as Zipporah gets a job that eventually leads her to the ladies and learns some things about herself in the process. Bickering, gambling and comeuppance are all on the agenda as the crew, far from the Pelzer, S.C., parish whence they came, negotiate Sin City. (Apr.)

More About the Author

Pat G'Orge (pronounced Gee-or-jay) - Walker is in a league of her own. This accomplished Christian author and comedienne has an amazing mind and talent for turning her observations of church life into gems of sidesplitting humor. It is her own special gift from God that enables G'Orge-Walker to depict the often ridiculous antics of church folk without subverting the Good News or watering down the potency of its message.

Pat G'Orge-Walker has paid a high price for the ever-present smile on her face. This Mt. Vernon, New York PK (preacher's kid) has survived a raging house fire; a violent assault; a car crash that mangled her body and a viral infection that left her temporarily blinded. Through it all, Pat quietly soaked in material from her father's Baptist congregation and her mother's Pentecostal assembly to create the stories that keep readers and audiences howling with laughter. Pat is a 'kept woman' whose life is held firmly and safely in God's hand. Mercy and compassion season every word spoken or written by Pat, who makes her story palpitate in the hearts of people who readily relate to victory over adversity.

The First Lady of Gospel Comedy forges a successful
career as author and comedian. She has paved the way for
many others in both fields. Pat's storytelling is likened to
Zora Neale Hurston's folklore'a documentation of
American culture and church life in literature.

Format: Hardcover
From South Carolina a colorful cast of characters from the "Ain't Nobody Saved but Us - All Other Goin' to Hell Church" soar into Las Vegas for the Mothers Board Conference. There is no-one better who could take the Mothers Board to "higher heights" than Sister Betty according to the church's pastor. But Sister Betty dosen't feel that grand about running for President of the Mothers Board, especially as the current President Sister Sasha Pray On and Vice President Sister Bea Blister...aka Mother Terminator and Mother Rambo respectively would rather battle with Satan than be oust from their precious positions.

Years of malice between these three women come to a head at a hotel in Las Vegas, when one woman's family secret is innocently revealed. This secret throws a curve ball straight at these church sisters and hits them right where it hurts...in their soul.

It seems as if it's time to repent while they are in Sin City!!!

As the antics these ladies pull lead to some hilarious situations with Sister Betty wanting to "Kill" somebody...lol, each questions their faith and tries to pull strength from each other. But can they ban together and stand up for someone who obviously needs to hear the truth?

An awesome story that has a title that fits like a glove. "Somewhat Saved" sheds light on how secrets buried for decades can still come to light and be just as hurtful if not more when finally revealed.

Author Pat G'orge-Walker's comedic timing is on point and richly layered with entertainment. The unbiased passion that radiates as the story comes full circle makes "Somewhat Saved" a funny but touching novel.

Great to see Mother Pray On and Mother Blister back from "Cruisin' On Desperation" and Kudos for the Zipporah Moses character!!

Format: Hardcover
In this title story of Pat G'Orge-Walker's latest book, one would have to wonder how `almost' in this case serve the purpose of the ultimate goal of salvation. Church life as told by this author has always offered a different view of ecclesiastical élan. Now comes SOMEWHAT SAVED, the most soulful and rip-roaring riposte ever! Again, we have the characters that have always defined the sixth book in this hilarious series. The cast of parishioners do battle in their usual haphazard way. You will be reintroduced to the main culprits in this one concerning Sister Betty, Mother Sasha Pray Onn and Mother Bea Blister `propheslying' and procrastinating with the purpose of an ongoing mission to harness and keep Sister Betty in check. Of course, central to the chaff that churns these stories are the jockeying for position to be sanctified beyond reproach in the Ain't Nobody Saved but Us-All Others Goin' to Hell church. This time around there's new poison in the pulpit with the Reverend Leotis Tom, who comes with new ideas that causes much more than hems and haws to settle with these matrons of mischief. He wants to give new flavor to the Mothers Board to coincide with an upcoming Las Vegas conference. And lo and behold who does he asks to run for high office in it? It's none other than Sister Betty to the chagrin of Sasha and Mother Bea. It's ON now and, and as they say in the annals of church lore - God don't like ugly!

...And there's plenty of it going around. Witness how devotion to being a better Christian is complicated by secret passions, satisfying old grudges, and sly vendettas being staged to keep the upper hand. It keeps you laughing as you turn each page.

Pat G'Orge Walker has done it again with her newest novel "Somewhat Saved". She takes you on anothe wild journey of ladies from the churches Mother Board as they prepare and go on their trip to Vegas. The women are a riot as they cause trouble almost everywhere they go. As you read the book Pat also inspires you to stop and think about a few things that might be going on within your life as well. Another well written christian comedy to say the least. If you enjoyed the antics from the women in "Cruisin' On Desperation" then you will love "Somewhat Saved"!!!!

Thank you for sharing Pat!

She's at it again. Sister Betty is laugh out loud, funny, entertaining is a understatemnet when you talk about Pat G'Orge-Walker books. She has a way that makes the words just flow. I have loved Sister Betty from the very first book that she was in. She was a combination of all the older SAVED women that I grew up with. She keeps you on your toes,and looking behind you, thinking she sitting in the pew just behind you, ready to pull on your ear if you talk to much in church. Or make you spit out your gum.

If you are looking for a good laugh a a great story line, get this book.
