Does it take a love interest or a romantic fantasy to stir the embers of a dull, lifeless marriage? Seven years ago, John and Valerie were in love. “After her marriage …and the depression that followed her marriage had begun to unravel like a poorly crafted pair of baby booties,” said Valerie to herself.
The Allure (the African American imprint of Moody) is a book that is great for book clubs, because it provides a catalyst for discussion among women who may also be in difficult marriages – but don’t every want to admit it.
Can a marriage seminar really solve their problems? Does Valerie ever quit blaming John? Readers learn that you can never correct what you don’t confront. Author Jackie King Collins, a veteran Dallas-based journalist provides a lump-in-your throat novel that leads you through the maze of a complicated marriage where God is ultimately revealed.
