Book Description

A powerful and spiritually satisfying novel from a compelling new voice about three courageous women who must confront the harsh realities of their lives through faith and prayer. Pam Lyons has a husband who places more trust in money and marijuana than in God. Yvonne Hastings is a minister's wife whose husband's infidelity and physical abuse brings their marriage to a crossroads. Taylor Johnson is a single mother who is looking for a good Christian man to help raise her son, but is unable to rid herself of the guilt left over from her promiscuous past. The secret of Taylor's child's paternity is the catalyst for the tumultuous relationship between the three women. Together, they will learn unforgettable lessons about love, forgiveness, prayer, and sisterhood.

Editorial Reviews


"This book has made me open my eyes. I think every woman should read this." (Sister-To-Sister Book Club on WHAT A SISTAH SHOULD DO)

"This is Tiffany Warren at her best! The Bishop's Daughter is a wonderfully written, story that had captures your attention from the very first page." (Bestselling author ReShonda Tate Billingsley on THE BISHOP'S DAUGHTER)

"Charmayne is a realistic character in a heartbreakingly familiar situation . . . covers several topics, from self-esteem to society's definition of success to spirituality." ( on FARTHER THAN I MEANTTO GO, LONGER THAN I MEANT TO STAY)

"I thoroughly enjoyed Warren's [second novel] . . . [I] was easily able to feel . . . deep emotions, frustrations, and humorous moments. This was my first time reading work by this author, but it certainly won't be my last." (The RAWSISTAZ Reviews on FARTHER THAN I MEANTTO GO, LONGER THAN I MEANT TO STAY)

4.0 out of 5 stars Read it in one sitting! July 17, 2005
What should a sista do when her husband's job is making music with local teens in a haze or weed smoke...or when her baby's father is a minister in the church and swears her to secrecy...or when she thinks she has the perfect marriage (and can share her wisdom with others) only to discover that her husband has a baby from one of the women you're trying to mentor?

Well, a sista could do a lot of things, but in Tiffany Warren's engaging debut debut, what Pam, Yvonne and Taylor should do is pray. Though the three main characters that the story shifts between live very different lives, all of them are coming to learn something new about God and about themselves.

Pam, a mother and employee in corporate America, starts the novel sitting in her car because she doesn't want to lose her peace amid the chaos behind her front door. Having long since laid down her own dreams to let her husband Troy explore his dream of becoming a record producer, Pam is too stressed to blessed more often than not. On top of everything, Troy accuses her of putting church before him. Will her husband ever understand what it means to turn his life over to Christ or will they always be at odds?

Taylor is holding things together the best she can. Between the scornful looks of people at church and the probing questions of her two-year-old son about the father he's never met, she's having a hard time making it through. God has forgiven her for having an affair, but the pressure of raising a child alone and keeping silent about the father's identity are proving too much, especially with all the gossipy church women who seem to want to tell her what to do. What would they do if they really knew the truth?

Yvonne knows how to get a man...and how to keep him.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Friendship Like No Other! September 21, 2005
I have been very impressed with the books I have read from Walk Worthy Press this year! Many of the authors are first-timers. Meet three awesome sistas in What A Sista Should Do.

Pam is a successful career woman, mother of two and often a reluctant wife. She married a musician whose big dreams have now become a big pain. Being the sole provider of her home, Pam no longer puts much trust in her unemployed husband desires to make it big in the music industry. Her disdain is evident every time she meets one of her husband latest hip-hop wannabees.

Taylor is a single mom struggling to make ends meet for her and her young son. Regretful about her involvement with a married minister, she continues to hold her head up and refuses to leave her church home despite the stares and talk. Unfortunately, as her struggles increase, Taylor must break her safely kept secret, her son's father.

Yvonne is a minister's wife and God-fearing woman. Her marriage seems perfect on the outside and even in some ways Yvonne herself is oblivious to the true state of her marriage. In a jolting matter, she will find out her husband is not the godly man he may seem.

How do these three women from the same church connect? Unknowingly in her pursuit to reach out to Taylor, Pam gets stuck in the middle as Yvonne discovers her husband fathered Taylor's son. It seems unlikely that Taylor and Yvonne would want to even be in each other's space which at first they do not. Forgiveness and the overwhelmingly sense to pray for each other through some difficult events create an unusual bond.

There are quite a few novels written about the bond between female friends, but I believe this is the most unusual set of friends I have read about.

4.0 out of 5 stars Faith as a common thread June 24, 2005
With only their faith in God as a common thread, three women become friends as they seek elusive answers to the unique struggles each one faces.

Pam is a career woman whose star is rising in the business world. However, what she really wants to do is stay home and raise her children. But husband Tony puts his desire to be a music producer and make money ahead of his family's needs.

Taylor is a young, never-married mother of a beautiful little boy named Joshua. Joshua's father is a minister in her church. And he just happens to be married. Taylor has never told anyone whom Joshua's father is, but when an unexpected job loss occurs, she may be forced to speak his name - if she wants to feed her son.

Yvonne is a woman who seems to have everything: money, looks, and a long-term marriage that gives the appearance that it is secure. But the problem is that it's all show when Yvonne admits she's married to a man who is abusive, lies and is unfaithful. And she knows the woman with whom he's been unfaithful.

What a Sista Should Dois Tiffany L. Warren's debut novel. It's a bold and honest look at the frailty of people struggling to do what's right and not always succeeding. It's also about God's grace and forgiveness. It will make you angry, you'll feel sadness and you will be uplifted and filled with hope. It's an intimate look into the lives of three African-American women whose primary strength comes from their faith in God.

4.0 out of 5 stars Put God first, Pray, Pray, Pray some more.... May 29, 2005
Pam, Taylor, Yvonne, women of New Faith House of Worship. These 3 women have more in common than they think and belonging to the same church is just one of them. Pam is married with a family, and is a career woman, believes in GOD and has what most women want to acquire, but then again you don't know her story. Yvonne is a faithful, saved, model woman who is married to Luke a minister at New Faith House of Worship, she has been a diligent wife and is commendable in her service to the Lord. Most women dream of having what Yvonne has a beautiful home, a lifestyle that permits her not to have to work outside the home and a man of God for a husband, but then again you don't know her story, well honestly Yvonne doesn't know her own story. Taylor, uh oh now Taylor is the scorned jezebel, let the women in church tell you, she is single and a mother, who will not reveal who her baby's daddy is & does not get any support from him, hmmmmmm you may even hear that she doesn't even know who the daddy is, if you listen to some of the church gossippers, but then again you don't know her story. Luke, a man of GOD, who is also a successful CPA, and has a submissive wife, O my now what more could this man want? Yeah well, he is a man, so what is his story? Spencer, the fine, educated, GOD Fearing, women falling all over him brother... mmmmmmmmm single, saved, and successful, oh yeah single ladies are you ready for him? Well, lets read and see.
