New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author, Kimberla Lawson Roby has published 23 novels. She is best known for her depiction of real-life social issues written in a fictional format. Kimberly has also won numerous awards for her talent. Her novels deal with very real issues, including corruption in the church, drug addiction, infidelity, gender discrimination, and racism to name a few.
Kimbela gets even more love from me, since we share the same Alma Mater; Cardinal Stritch University.
Roby is best known for her Reverend Curtis Black series , and A Sinful Calling is the latest in this series.
The review for this book, does not reflect how I feel about the overall series. I rated the book a 4 for the following reasons; Dillon’s character was not significant enough for a spinoff, and I am totally over Alicia. She is beyond confused, and it just became annoying. I get it, we are uncovering major issues we are faced with today in the both of them. However, I just feel it was overkill.
Ill elaborate more on the issues outlined in this book. Dillon suffered from major depression, which turned into acholism. Alicia suffered from psychotic depression, which caused her to try and commite suicide. We go through things in our lives, and we are taught to just deal with them. Mental Illness is a real thing, and it affects so many people. We can not be too proud to recognize when we have a problem. Also, as friends we have to support others who may suffer from Mental Illness.
