Pride and Pumpernickel
by Aisha Ford
Reviewed by Tyora Moody
Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. (Proverbs 16:18)
Aisha Ford writes a delightful novel with a unique story line. Dana is a successful regional manager for a well-established bakery. Due to competition that has entered the area, sales at the bakery have slowly decreased. The owners hire Ethan, a famous chef, to spruce up their menu. Dana is very passionate about the bakery's current menu, while Ethan is equally passionate about his recipes. While sparks fly between the two in the kitchen, a romantic spark starts outside the kitchen. Unfortunately, Ethan and Dana find it increasingly difficult to separate work from their budding relationship.
This was the first novel I read by Aisha Ford and I was pleasantly pleased from the first to the last page. Ms. Ford wasted no time drawing the reader into the story line and these two characters. Like many other Christian fiction novels, the reader is inspired and learns something about herself at the same time. Pride is indeed a downfall and there is no room for it in a relationship at any stage. Its through only humbleness and prayer we see these two individuals truly reach their God potential, not only at the workplace but in their relationship. I look forward to reading Aisha Fords other works.
