A House Divided is the 10th installment in the Rev. Curtis Black series by Kimberla Lawson Roby and if you have been keeping up with this series you know that there is excitement and twists around every corner.
Life seems to be repairing itself for the Black family since we were last here. Curtis and Charlotte are doing well in their marriage after surviving yet another fiasco. They are embarking on a new adventure in their lives – preparing for the birth of their first grandchild, and they couldn’t be more excited. Matthew, Curtis and Charlotte’s son and his girlfriend Raquel are about to give birth to their baby boy and couldn’t be more happy and scared at the same time. Matthew is continuing his education and away at Harvard while Raquel is home in Mitchell, IL, so the stress of being so far apart during this time is stressful enough without adding the stress that has already begun between Charlotte and Raquel’s mother Vanessa. In typical Charlotte form she wants things her way, but she has run up on a mother that will not allow her to walk all over her or her daughter and we definitely see the explosion that is building within that situation. Curtis and his ministry at Deliverance Outreach are growing and doing great but when Curtis receives a anonymous letter from his past this worries Curtis. Curtis is well aware of his past and what additional problems it may cause him and his family but if he could just figure out what this mystery person wants, maybe his skeletons won’t fall out of the closet, this time. With the luck that the Black family has had with visitors from the past, Curtis just knows this could cause major problems for him.
A House Divided is a very eventful read. There are twists in there that make you speak out loud because you can’t believe that this just happened, but you definitely don’t want to stop reading until you get to the end ~ just remember to breathe because I found myself holding my breath when I got to certain parts! Roby doesn’t disappoint with this installment, she keeps us on the edge of our seats with her strong story line and feisty characters that mesh so well together it is more like watching tv than reading a book. I enjoy Roby’s work she is the continued professional and friend that is writing for US! Keep up the great work, I look forward to more of your drama!
