Ivy's friends Sheena and Jade and her cousin Miranda arrive at Ivy's home for a girls' weekend, but the pending divorce and Ivy's depression are news to them. The four women are very close and have always prided themselves on the fact that they are there for each other through thick and thin. When Ivy receives word that Ray is in the hospital, she refuses to be by his side. It is not until she is besieged with telephone calls from the hospital staff and Ray's family, that she high tails it there. What she finds is an abundance of family drama, secrets, lies and scrutiny. What occurs within Ivy is an emotional breakdown and eventually a mental shutdown.
IVY'S DILEMMA: Thy Will Be Done is an entertaining read because the element of surprise is enormous and the author tantalizes the reader by giving just enough information on the lives of Ivy's three friends. This information is a tease but does not overshadow Ivy's issues. The author skillfully allows us to return to past of the primary and secondary characters to gain a better understanding of their lives today. My only issue with the book - some of the scenes and the behavior of the characters is over the top, way over the top! True, when a loved one dies, people tend to act out but the rationale used for the dysfunctional behavior, at times, was not believable. All in all, IVY'S DILEMMA: Thy Will Be Done is a satisfying read and I would be interested in the rest of the Dilemma Series by Reign.

He has stopped providing for Ivy and there four kids mentally and financially. Being a product of a preacher's kid, Ivy stayed prayerful that Ray would turn back into the man she fell in love with.
Needing a break from her dilemma. Ivy's best friends and family Sheena, Jade, and Miranda comes and spends the weekend with her to boost her spirits and offers her there loving support. Adding more misery to her dilemma, Ivy finds out that Ray is killed in a car accident.
Will Ivy be able to find the peace that she deserves?
Ivy's Dilemma (Thy Will Be Done) (Dilemmas #1) (Dilemmas) I recommend for everyone to read. Through thick and thin friends to the end is my motto, this was shown throughout the book. Love this story, can't wait to read "Jade's Dilemma"
Reader's Paradise Book Club
True to life characters that remind you of your bestfriend along with believable situations make Ivy's Dilemma an engrossing and exciting read.
Young love, parental love, family love, spiritual love and friendship love, its not always about me nor the situation was the message I walked away with after reading the last page. Reign, truly wrote from her heart and I cannot wait to read the rest of the series.
