The Other Sister

(2010)
(The first book in the Jefferson's series)
A novel by

 
 
In her latest novel, Cheri Paris Edwards weaves a heartwarming tale of faith, redemption and forgiveness in this modern take on the Parable of The Prodigal Son.

Bishop James Jefferson and his wife, Lena, are elated when their daughter, Sanita, breezes into town after a mysterious disappearance. Not so thrilled is Sanita's older sister, Carla, who's instantly suspicious and resentful of her parent's eagerness to welcome Sanita back with open arms and no questions about her whereabouts. The two sisters have never been close, and Sanita's absence has widened the distance between them.Sanita quickly eases into the comforts of home, but she's haunted by dark secrets, lies and the shame of a lifestyle that took her far from her roots as a minister's daughter, and jeopardizes her attempts to rebuild her life-which now includes a blooming romance with Terrence Catchings, a handsome former basketball player. And despite Carla's efforts to uncover what really sparked Sanita's sudden return, she's facing her own challenges as the new principal of the town's charter school, sending her on an emotional rollercoaster and into the arms of a familiar comforter: food.

As each sister struggles with her own baggage, insecurities and the burden of keeping it all together, James and Lena must balance ministering to their daughters with the demands of their fl ourishing congregation. But when Sanita's skeletons begin to tumble out of the closet, a battle-worn Carla discovers that the man of her dreams-none other than Terrance-has eyes for her sister, and James's and Lena's marriage faces its own threat, the family must embark on a spiritual and emotional journey that will test their bond, the limits of their faith and their understanding of grace and true forgiveness.
