Don't Blame the Devil by Pat G'Orge-Walker

Don't Blame the Devil   by  Pat G' Orge-Walker  is about facing the consequences for one's actions and God's ability to show us how to redeem time wasted by selfish choices. The main character, Delilah Dupree Jewel-Pillar, abandoned her young son and husband in order to pursue her dream to be a professional singer. After 40 yrs. of chasing her dream, and experiencing quite a few hard knocks along the way, Delilah decides she wants a relationship with God (on her terms, of course). One thing she "orders" God to do is help her find her family (ever hear the saying "be careful what you ask for"?). 

Delilah is that underdog the reader winds up rooting for in spite of themselves. You actually want to see her get her family back and be forgiven for her past misdeeds. Blame is a book that can tear the reader apart because as much we like a good "prodigal story", there's the issue of an child being abandoned and what about her husband (and the son's foster mother whom daddy is thinking about dating?). One lesson Blame teaches us is that life doesn't always come in a nice, neat perfect little package, but for those whom love God and are called according to His purposes, things do work out for their good.

Mrs. G'Orge-Walker includes a Q&A (my favorite part) at the end of the book that invites readers to discuss the moral issues the book covers.

Don't Blame the Devil is available for preorder on Amazon.com (www.amazon.com) and Barnes & Noble (www.bn.com)

    Seems like this would be a very intriguing story.
