Marilynn Griffith sent me a nice Thanksgiving gift last year, a copy of her latest gospel diva read- If the Shoe Fits.
Shoe designer, Rochelle Gardner's love life is raining men, honey. She
has a deacon on her right, her baby daddy on the left and a young
waiter trying to push himself up the middle to her heart. Which man
does God want her to be with, if any? This novel is too many things and a touch too close to my own love dilemmas. (Y'all know about it!!) Anyway...
After reading the first few pages I called Mary. Called her. Y'all I don't have time to call people about their books anymore. But I had to call her and tell her. That this novel is her upside down and sideways. Mary is funny, smart, on point, crazy, God inspiring, just too many things.
And I love this story. I love washing the feet--something we do every
Mother's Day in my home church. I love the rituals. The cool things the
Sassy Sistahood get her into. This book is light and fun and a good
pick me up on a cold, toe curling, man-hating day.
Now in its second printing. You can If The Shoe Fits (Steeple Hill Cafe) right here.
Dee Stewart is a christian entertainment publicist, book enthusiast, and speaker. You can find her at The Master's Artsist every 2nd and 4th Monday.
