Editorial Reviews

Review

"...A wonderful novel that rekindles the Christmas feeling. The urge to forgive and forget is amazinglyportrayed. ...The story is short, but it is well developed....I just loved it!"
~Rabia Tanveer, Readers' Favorite Book Awards and Reviews

From the Author

BELIEVE IN ME is, at its core, a story ofRECONCILIATION. The dictionary definition of "reconciliation" is "thecondition of being reconciled"...which is not very helpful unless youunderstand what "to reconcile" means. The Merriam-Webster definition isthis: "to restore to friendship or harmony".
 
Why would a friendship (or, in this case, a marriage) need to berestored? Because something's broken. Something destroyed it, and now it needs to be repaired...or else abandoned altogether. People in today'ssociety are often way too eager to abandon a marriage (or, indeed, mostANY relationship) when it ceases to "work" for them.
 
The fact is that people are imperfect. Everyone makes mistakes. Andwhen you put two imperfect people together in a close relationship likemarriage, you're going to have problems. Ultimately, it's how you dealwith those problems that dictates the success (or failure) of yourmarriage. You have to be completely committed to each other - and to the relationship - no matter what the personal cost.
 
Here's what oneof my one-star reviewers said (in part), "Everybody is basicallyself-centered and doesn't do anything with any common sense. If mymother sided with my husband and sister and treated me like I was thebad guy, why would I go to her house for Christmas? Didn't take too long to read but I stuck with it hoping for someone in the family to come to their senses; didn't happen".
 
I mean, maybe I didn't do a good job (as the author) of explainingthe obligation. In the opening scene, Trina didn't want to go to hermother's house, and she certainly didn't want to meet with her sister.But she felt a certain sense of duty that pulled her into thatsituation. The family relationships were more important to Trina thanher own desires...so I find it particularly interesting that this reviewer thought every character was being self-centered.
 
The other one-star review? I seemed to really touch a nerve with this person. "I am so pissed atthis family that I am trying to see where the sweet romance is going tocome in. Unlike Steve Harvey, I believe once a cheater always a cheater. Besides, the mother sets her up, has her drive 5 hrs for Christmaswithout telling her the soon to be ex-husband is also staying for theholidays! REALLY, you would do that to your own kid? That would be oneex-mother for me!" An ex-mother? Once a cheater, always a cheater? Seems like this person really doesn't understand the meaning of the wordforgiveness.
 
And that's what BELIEVE IN ME really is. It's astory of love - real, sacrificial love - and forgiveness. It's a talethat shows the magic that occurs when two people realize that they bothplayed a part in making a bad situation worse, but they can both changetheir attitudes and turn things around to make it right again.
 
This book is a romance story, but it's not a romance in thetraditional sense of the word. There's very little sex (really, none atall), but there is a happy ending. Sort of like a fairy tale with noreal heroes/heroines and a very Christian message (even though there issome mention of adultery and premarital sex - big "no no's" in theChristian market).

Now that you know the story behind (and the true theme of) the story, I hope you'll check out the excerpt and consider buying the book. Thanks for reading this, and I'd love to hear your thoughts about the book - even if they're negative. I look forward to reading your reviews!
