Item Description...
Lynette and her husband, Robert, had come a long way since they first met twenty-one years ago. Together they had constructed a beautiful house-and made two beautiful children-in Robert's home state of Georgia. Lynette's happiness was a wonderful gift after a lonely, motherless childhood. But now, just two weeks from her fortieth birthday, Lynette has received distressing news from her doctor-and for the first time in a long time, she feels deeply unhappy, indignant and disappointed. She's always tried to be a good person. Why is something bad happening to her? Robert knows that if his wife ever needed his understanding and support, it's now. And he is determined to give it to her. He wishes he could heal her sorrow, but knows only the power of faith can-and will-do that. And sure enough, just as Lynette worries she may be losing something vital, she finds something even more important-something she's been longing for all of her life. Now, if only she can crumble the wall of doubt in her heart and let the joy come through-.

Helped My Faith Grow  Dec 17, 2007
Dear Ms. Billings,
This novel came at a point in my life when I could really relate to the challenges of aging with health issues. I could never put into words my fears of having a hysterectomy. You have done an excellent job of portraying a fairly common issue for middle age women of color and how we associate our femininity and sex appeal to our womb. Thank you for helping me to understand and make my loved ones understand.

I ultimately ended up having an alternative surgical resolution to my fibroid issue. But it taught me about faith in God in all circumstances. He helped me build strength within myself, and my marriage. I thank you sincerely for telling my story. I will look for your novels because I simply like your style. Merry Christmas and may God bless you richly. Warmest regards, Robbin
AN OKAY READ.......  Aug 30, 2005
If you're looking for drama and suspense, keep going. This book will not hold your attention. On the other hand, if you're looking for a little something to pass the time, this one may do the trick.

The main character receives the news that she has fibroid tumors and may need surgery. Fibroids are so incredibly commonplace among African-American women that I had difficulty taking seriously all of the drama the ensued as a result of her diagnosis. One would think that she had received news that she had a life-threatening illness. But minimal drama in a solid, God-fearing household is something of a literary anomaly these days. Adding to Lynnette's struggles with her health, is the sudden need for the comfort of her birth mother, who deserted her when she was very young.

A good, solid, clean novel. A sarcastic thanks to BayBBlaze for managing to ruin the entire story with the second sentence of her review. Please be more considerate of folks who are just looking for an opinion on the story/novel, without revelations of critical storylines.

I'm sorry to say but this book is really really boring. I guessed from the 15th page that Rose was Lynnete's mum because the book is so damn predictable. Therefore, u guessed it- it's a perfect little ending. I don't think that Lynnette reacted deeply to her tumours as she should have. I know she cried a little but i'm sure the author could have focused on her sorrows a little more. Um.. Joshua and Miranda were a little too sweet and perfect for my liking. I know they had thier litlle story line gonig on there but soon they still returned to their perfect little world. In fact the whole family before the news about the tumours was so perfect they would reach distinction for an audition to be on the front of a cereal box. I really hate authors who skip time periods for like 3 months at a time beause it doesnt explain what has happened in that time period. And when Simone had her car crash, the author didn't focus on the impact of it. I mean I know it was only small but a car crash must be a daunting experience and the writer didn't even express that. Simone was supposed to have had a change of heart but but because the car crash wasn't written in depth, the whole change of heart didn't seem genuine. I mean the whole car crash scene lasted for only a page!!!!
Because I am only 14 people must think that I don't know a good book from a good book but i have read nearly all the books in the african/carribean section in the library so I'm criticising for a reason, u gemme! London stand up TALL!
Such a Whiner!  Feb 16, 2005
I wish I had read the reviews before I bought this book. I am just on page 23 and already Lynn has gotten on my nerves so bad with her constant whining and feeling sorry for herself. I probably will not finish this book.
What faith are we measuring?  Oct 15, 2004
Unfortunately, I didn't find this book as inspiring as others here. In the first chapter, Lynn is informed by her doctor that she has fibroids. And understandbly her initial emotions are of fear, anxiety and worry . However, after the 3rd chapter I just couldn't take anymore of her whiney, self-centered attitude and her constant complaing. She continually takes her frustration out on her VERY supportive husband, Robert.

It's obvious that Lynn doesn't have faith, so I assume the "measure" the author here is referring to is NULL. I say that because she is so focused on the fibroids and the negative outcome of it and all the "what ifs??". I found myself arguing with Lynn at times saying "Didn't the doctor said that there MIGHT be a chance of this" or "There COULD be..." I wanted to just shake her and say "Girl! You're a child of God! You need to quit acting like this and focus on God and confess the word and stop letting Satan rob you of your healing!!"

I can say this because I had a fibroid tumor removed in April. And there were people who will actually talk fear into your life "Aren't you worried?" or "What if they remove your uterus?" or "If I were you ..." Instead of saying "You are more than a conqueror.." or "No weapon formed against you..." GIVE ME SOME FAITH TO HOLD ON TO PLEASE!!

In fairness, the author has wonderful writing skills! But this character (Lynn) portrayed such a negative attitude I just couldn't relate - the kind of person that makes you want to put your head in the sand and give up all hope.

There are other plots that develop throughout the story but I'll let you discover that on your own. Happy reading.
