Random House, Inc.
The congregation at the Freedom Temple Church of God in Christ doesn't know what to think when their pastor, Bishop Lance Howell, returns from a vacation in Jamaica with a wife in tow.

As if Lady Elect Arykah Miles's false eyelashes, scarlet red fingernails, and fishnet stockings aren't flashy enough, the blond wigs and sky-high stilettos she wears send Mother Gussie Hughes and Mother Pansie Bowak into panic mode.

The mothers of the church don't take too kindly to the fact that Pastor Howell chose to marry outside of the congregation. One look at Lady Arykah and the mothers know that she isn't likely to be controlled. Arykah proves that to be true when she refuses to tone down her attire.

Determined to oust Lady Elect Arykah Miles, the mothers put a plan in motion to show Arykah how much she isn't liked or wanted. An all-out war ensues, and the church mothers are willing to try some pretty devious antics to get rid of Arykah. What they don't know is that Arykah is from the streets, and she fought hard to get to where she is. She's ready to prove to the whole congregation that, like it or not, she's here to stay.

This was a very good novel about how other people, especially religious people tends to judge others. It lines up with my experience within the church realm, how those who put on a false front in fooling others that they are truly following Christ. The characters in this book were malicious towards Arykah, just because she wouldn't bow down to their threats. She prevailed in the end, even though she had to suffer some physical stuff, but God was on her side, and if you really believe in Him, then he will never let you down!!!!!

Fantastic read. I like to read books that make want to complete them due to the suspense. Lady A is something else. Good Christian fiction or is it fiction?

The female character in this book was no ordinary first lady. Keep reading!! What happened in this story is what I wish (and hopefully you too) would happen in churches today!! Happy reading!!

OMG. I really enjoyed this book! Lady Elect Arykah Miles-Howell was not a member of the Freedom Temple Church of God in Christ, so when Bishop Lance Howell introduced her as his new wife the Mother Elders had a huge problem with her. She tried to be the best First Lady that she could be, but was always met with adversity. The Mothers tried so many different ways to get her away from the Bishop. Lady Arykah ended up being physically hurt at the hands of someone known to the church Mothers.

A trick can't be seen on the arm of her man because sh is not worthy. She s not even second best. She's told when to speak, when to sit, and when to deserve to be treated like a queen. P 155-156
