  • This is a different style of writing for Vanessa, in comparison to the Rain and Storm series that I loved so dearly since it covered redemption and anyone can turn their lives over to God In Yesterday s Promise, speaks about two people stubbornness, where Melinda helps her father, Bishop Johnson, mega church ministry and expects to be next in line to lead the flock but sees it was passed on to her ex fiance, Bishop Steve Marks Steve Marks believes he can rekindle his love and ask a second time f [...]


  • Can one woman fulfill her dream and still be granted the love of her heart I have never read a story where a woman wanted to be a preacher I started the book a bit apprehensive I am very conservative and wasn t sure how the author would write the story and convince me, without making me feel I was going against my beliefs.I was pleased Melinda starts out a determined woman A woman determined to serve the Lord as a minister for Him Her main focus, the pulpit What I enjoyed the most about this sto [...]


  • I really LOVED this book Now I didn t jump at this book, because it didn t seem like the normal Vanessa Miller type books however after speaking with her personally at the Indianapolis Black Expo I bought the book I was pleasantly surprised Melinda who is the main character in the book is a female who has been called to preach however she lives in a man s world She feels that because she is a woman every man is against her preaching including her father the Bishop When he steps down and she is f [...]

  • This is a different style of writing for Vanessa, in comparison to her Rain and Storm series that I loved so dearly since it covered redemption and anyone can turn their lives over to God Now, I am reading a story of two people stubbornness but want to be in the will of God and re commit their love relationship for one another after they see the light of God s views on women in ministry She will be on April 25, Sunday, 5pm CST blogtalkradio Dream4More


  • I liked this book a lot My emotions went back and forth quite a bit with this book At times I thought the Bishop made a bad choice, at times I thought Melinda was being a baby and sometimes I thought Steven was clueless But the book was a nice read I wasn t disappointed.



  • I loved this book but my all time favorite by Ms Miller A Long Time Coming Vanessa is one of my favorite author.
