)-- Author, Wanda B. Campbell due to release her latest novel Illusions, February 2009 is currently in the midst of a great blog tour. Join in at http://bit.ly/illusions-blog-tour
Illusions is a page-turner that exposes the taboo topic of addiction and church leadership.
After 3 years of marriage, Denise Hightower discovers her husband, Pastor Bryce Hightower, has an addiction. Pastor Hightower’s subsequent denial and casual attitude toward his addiction jeopardizes not only his marriage, but impairs his ability to effectively preach the gospel.
Following the biased advice of her mother and yielding to pressure from her husband, Denise agrees to keep his addiction a secret, although her self-esteem plummets. Denise’s life as the perfect “First Lady” ravels apart at the seams following the revealing of a family secret and betrayal at the hands of her best friend.
Illusions is a poignant tale about a religious family in crisis. Secrets, denial and recovery are at the forefront of this story.
“Although fiction, Illusions not only exposes a very real secret addiction that many Christian men face, but also offers an insightful resolution that will point them to the road to recovery. It is an eye-opener that should be required reading for men’s ministries everywhere.”
~Kendra Norman-Bellamy, national bestselling author of Crossing Jhordan’s River, More Than Grace, and In Greene Pastures.
“Illusions is a definite page-turner which reveals the naked truth about the effects of pornography and church leadership. Wanda B. Campbell dares to bring this taboo topic true-to-life as she brilliantly describes the sexual struggles of a young, sincere pastor, and an initially hopeful but now seemingly hopeless and heartbroken first lady. I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next!”
~Kim Brooks, author of, He’s Saved…But is He for Real? and He’s Fine…But is He Saved?
