Julia Simone is an extremely wealthy business-owner. She was married and widowed at a very young age. She has one daughter, Shay, who is now in college. She also had a second, abusive marriage and has kept herself away from relationships for years. Now at forty, she is ready for love but does not know if she can trust.
A series of circumstances bring Reggie and Julia together and though they are taken in by the other's spirituality and attractiveness, they both decide they can not have a relationship with the other. However, they are unable to stay apart, so they decide to be, `Just Friends.' Of course, their feelings grow but they are plagued by misunderstanding and miscommunications. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this realistically, portrayed book of how Christians date, while also seeing portrayals of real people and their struggles. Ms. Campbell penned a wonderfully, romantic, spirit-filled first novel.
I recommend First Sunday in October to those who enjoy Christian Fiction and to anyone who enjoys a well-told romantic story.
Julia meets Rev. Reginald Pennington, a powerful up-and-coming minister. It is love at first sight when they meet, but neither realize it because they are not looking for love at this time, or so they think. Both have issues of forgiveness and reconciliation they must resolve before they can move their friendship to the next level. They manage to work together on these issues to both realize that they are indeed soul mates God has put together for a reason. Together they are a good team and with the family involved, they are strong enough to face all obstacles thrown at them.
Wanda B. Campbell has done a wonderful job with FIRST SUNDAY IN OCTOBER, her debut novel. She told a story of two people who had never experienced true love and how with forgiveness and reconciliation of past wrongs true love it is really worth waiting on. She pulled you into the lives of the characters and made you feel as though you knew them. I look forward to her next project.

Pennington are confused and in love. They struggle to let their guards down and totally open their hearts to one another. In the end, they discover through trust, forgiveness, honesty and a good support system, true love can be found.
I really enjoyed that I was able to see growth in Ms. Campbell's characters as the storyline developed. I look forward to more from this author.

There were times when Julia and Reggie were so stubborn that I wanted to just take them by their heads and knock them together. But that would've killd the beauty in this story. Wanda allowed the beauty of the story to drip from her pen, making it a perfect love story.
The chemistry between these two was obvious but their self control and respect for the Higher power was right on point. I recommed this book for anyone who loves a good romance.
Congrats Wanda, this is a wonderfully told story and I look forward to your next offering!
