About the Book:

book coverFounded by Bishop Cedric and Lacey Jones. Although known to be a charismatic preacher behind the pulpit, he has some internal demons that he must conquer if he is to remain the leader at The Sanctuary.
First Lady Lacey Jones has been hiding behind the shadows of her husband. She has a thriving ministry, a successful publishing business, and an adorable husband. She has it all. Or so it seemed. How does Lacey learn to maneuver her way around what is facing her dead on, and find hope, restoration, and joy once again?
“The Sanctuary, a gripping Christian Fiction tale of unyielding faith, dark secrets, and the difficult road to redemption.”
Dominique’s Review:
The story was awesome! I loved the deep storyline that was created bringing a realness and a relatable book to many readers. The book took a very long time to come together. There were certain situations in the book that I thought came out of nowhere that should have had some type of development. I really didn’t understand the  drift between husband and wife in the beginning. In this part of the book, I would have liked  little bit of a backstory.  I think the ending was truly amazing and the book came together in a wonderful way. It showed just how Christians go through many things in their life and that prayer and faith is what pulls us through.  I liked the characters. I liked the dialogue. Great story! A must read! Very inspirational!
