The word congregate means “to come together in a group, crowd or assembly”. That is generally what we do when we go to church that is why we are called a congregation. But what is underlying in the congregation is what makes us unique and gives that certain bond that makes us more like family than we truly understand.
Mark and Amber Coleman are typical preacher’s kids who fell in love. Mark is the son of the Pastor of Third Baptist Church and Amber is the daughter of the deacon of the church who happens to be his best friend. They grew up together and it is natural that they would fall in love and get married. Just because they show up at church and church functions all smiles and giggles look can be deceiving, after all they do have to play the part they are the son and daughter-in-law of the pastor.
Terrence and Asia are the perfect couple. Terrence is a successful surgeon that looks like a model, clean-cut, six-foot four inches tall, a chiseled two hundred and forty pounds, smooth chocolate-brown color and a perfect set of pearly whites. Asia is a successful bank executive with a perfectly toned body of an athlete that could rival any woman ten years younger than her. They have all of the material possessions that they need, now if their marital relationship was plentiful as their material possessions they would have the world.

They can’t get enough of each other and their love is evident to everyone, everyone except Issac’s mother Mrs. Silver-Patton who feels like Veronica isn’t good enough for HER Issac. Will Issac have to choose between the two women in his life who mean the most to him?
The Congregation is a very interesting story about relationships and conflicts but the storyline is inconsistent. At one point you are reading about one set of characters and the very next paragraph you pick up with another set of characters, it was slightly confusing but you eventually came back around to catching up about the previous characters. There is a Congregation Part II coming out, I look forward to seeing what changes are going to be made in this next installment.
The Congregation is available for purchase through Amazon.com (paperback and Kindle), BN.com (paperback and Nook) and on Smashwords.com.
