More About the Author

Vera Jennings was born and raised in Chicago Illinois, the third of six children to Carnel and Birdie Ward. Vera had three sisters and two brothers. She was preceded in death by her sister Debora and both parents.

She was a born-again believer in Jesus Christ.

Since publishing two short-stories in a monthly singles magazine called "Being Single" in 1988, she had turned her attention and focus to full-length fiction prose with faith-based themes. As a result, Vera has penned two novels and finished a third; a historical romance during the Civil War Era named "Fight the Good Fight". Fitting, as that is what Vera did until cancer took her from us.

Her first book entitled "The Way of a Heart" was completed in 1994 and serves as the prequel and groundwork for "The Sister Gospels."

Vera started work on "The Sister Gospels" in 2001, completing the final draft in 2011. It has been self-published since January 2013. She hoped her ten-year labor of love proves to be as enjoyable for her reader as it was for her breathing life into this work.

As an aside, Vera was diagnosed and battled non-Hodgkins Lymphoma cancer since August 2012, which had required Chemo, Bone Marrow Transplant and Radiation Treatments. It is a direct correlation to the trials and tribulations the four women face in "The Sister Gospels." She and her husband's faith and reliance on God is their rock and refuge much like the sisters in the story.

On 11/11/13, Veteran's Day, Vera Jean Jennings succumbed to complications from the cancer she battled for 15 months at 6:30 AM Monday morning, nearly 7 years to the day Vera and Fred met.

Thank you for your interest in Vera and her work. She continues to inspire people to this day.

We can be contacted via her website at FirstRateFiction.com.

I love family. And it's always great when families can love each other through thick and thin. This was a great example of such. I would like to see a sequel. My sisters and I are very close and we help each other wherever possible. I really didn't expect it to be such a tearjerker at the end.

Save for a great deal of grammatical errors & misused words, I enjoyed this book and hated to see it end. There were feelings in me that arose that I nearly forgot existed. Such a remarkable tale of sisterly love among trials, tribulations, & faith walks with or without God. Nicely done.

I enjoyed this book, even though there were a few slow moments, it didn't take away from the story at all. I liked the genuine feelings within the relationships of the sisters.

Fantastic story of love and grace. I would love to see this becomes a series about the four sister's individual stories!

I really enjoyed this book and can appreciate the time and effort Mrs. Jennings put into this book. I believe that she has what it takes to be an amazing author. There were a few moments when I wanted things to go a certain way, but sometimes things fall apart and the fact that she incorporated that into the book made it very relatable in my opinion. However, I gave this book 3 stars because there were a few
minor things that caused the book to be a slow read at times. Such as, overly explaining very simple things (I didn't need to know what Greta used to spoon the eggs on a platter) and reintroducing characters two or more times using the same details that were paragraphs long. Overall I enjoyed this book and look forward to hearing more from this author!!

New to Vera Jennings work, but the way the lives of these four sisters were chronicled was well done. Timeless lessons of self worth, forgiveness and strength from knowing and appreciating the things in life that cannot be bought resonates through each trial and triumph faced by these sisters who though living in various walks of life still maintains an unbreakable bond of love and support-even at their worst.

I initially choose the book because I enjoy reading Christian fiction. The storyline is good. It demonstrates life's trials and tribulations and how God's grace can help us overcome them. However, it was a slow read for me. I usually can read a book in about 2 days. This took a lot longer to finish..which I did only because I don't like to stop reading a book once I've started it.

This book was an amazing read and was great on so many levels. It was so deep but not to the point of dramatic but very realistic and touching. I come from a big family and this was so down to earth about how joys and trials really are when you work together, fight, and forgive. Very eloquently written and filled with spiritual sound advice
