Book Review: One Sunday at a Time

About the Book

Purchase Your Copy
In this soap opera in print, the main character, Deborah, asks herself, “What does crazy look like?” Let Deborah tell it, it's the reflection that looks back at her in the mirror. She has a career she loves, two beautiful children and a handsome and successful husband. Her life seems to be the blueprint almost every woman she knows would kill to live. But working full-time, being a full-time mother, full-time wife and a full-time Sunday only Christian seems to be taking its toll on her. With all the scheming and shenanigans Deborah orchestrated to get this lifestyle, she might have to come up with a whole set of new ones to maintain it.
Lynox is Deborah's husband who she thanks God for putting back into her life after a game of cat and mouse that defies the laws of romance. He feels that all Deborah needs is to let her hair down, maybe make some new friends and live a little. When Deborah agrees and then suspects Lynox of having an affair with the woman that he suggested she form a friendship with, will he live to regret his own 
advice? 


My Review

I read One Sunday at a Time over a few days. Each time I read, I couldn't help but think of how Deborah represents so many women I know. We have full-time jobs. We have a family to take care of. Some of us have husbands or significant others as well. We sometimes become overwhelmed with all we have to do. What drew me in was that Deborah refused to seek the help she needed. Many times, people who are suffering from mental illness do not view counseling or medication as God's resources. Deborah took me on a crazy journey. Her husband, Lynox, was strong and faithful. This read will make you reflect and make changes for what is important: Our relationship with God, our health, and our relationship with our loved ones. Everything else is secondary.
