You may have heard you don’t always know what’s going on in the house next door. Even if it looks like the perfect situation. In her debut novel, The Sunday Morning Wife Spartanburg author Pamela Rice tells the fictional story of a Preacher who beats his wife. From the outside looking in, Yolanda Clarke appears to have it all. She's a beautiful woman, and her husband, Timothy, is the pastor of BrightStar Tabernacle. They seem to have the perfect life. But, looks are certainly deceiving. Yolanda has become a puppet on a string, totally controlled by Timothy. While everyone at church thinks he walks on water, Yolanda knows the person behind the mask. His constant verbal tirades, physical and emotional abuse has become unbearable. Will Yolanda finally climb from the abyss of despair she's lived in with Timothy and move to a brighter tomorrow with Andre? Or will she forever remain "The Sunday Morning Wife?"
Pamela was a guest on the television show Your Carolina on January 13, 2010. She spoke with Jack and Kimberly regarding her new novel and the affects of domestic violence. During the show Pamela stated her inspiration stemmed from witnessing a domestic violence situation while riding to church on Sunday morning with her husband.
Pamela is an employee of Spartanburg Regional Hospital and plans to host a book signing there in the near future. You can find out more about the book at Pamela’s website.
