*Religion, romance and a frequent fall from grace is what has undergirded the immensely successful trail of novels by New York Times bestselling author Kimberla Lawson Roby, who launched the series with Casting The First Stone in 2000.

Mrs. Lawson Roby’s latest book is “The Reverend’s Wife,” and once again the subject matter is the dysfunctional private life of the publicly devout and once fallen, Rev. Curtis Black.

Kimberla segues into the current story in a manner that new readers are not lost to the indiscretions of Rev. Black’s past, which have cost him two marriages and a very troubled third state of matrimony.

This time it’s Mrs. Charlotte Black who has had the affairs and abandoned the plastic role of the sterotypical preacher’s wife.  This of course is after previous infidelity from the Reverend.  Charlotte seeks amends  but the Reverend is ready to file for divorce and is being vigorously pursued by a woman who wants to be the next Mrs. Curtis Black.

Kimberla Lawson Roby tells EURweb why she has tackled and profited from writing about controversy in the church.
