What you won't do for love...

I can only describe this book with one word awesome! A story well told


Mrs. Warren gives us another book I'm sure many of us can relate to. This book came at the right time with the situation(s) I'm going through. It made me look at my situation like Charmayne had to look at hers sometimes we (women) would rather go through hell and high water to keep a man than wait for the one the Lord is preparing for us. We've all been there and done that...some still doing. Anyway: We meet Charmayne, an over-weight, VP of a bank, living the good life, but she's missing one thing, Mr. Right. Everyone from her mom to the First Lady is pushing her towards finding the man of her dreams. Then unexpectedly she meets finer than wine, smooth talking, Travis-every woman's fantasy. Everything's going as planned, but read to see what happens when the Lord starts talking to her heart, giving her warning signs, but when there ignored everything starts to crumble even the lies surrounding their relationship. This book is and was an eye opener-Listening to the Lord will keep us out of a lot of trouble... if only we would stop and listen. Thank you so much Mrs. Warren!!!

(RAW Rating: 4.5) - Life Turned Upside-Down

Thirty-six year old Charmayne Ellis is successful in her career and with her relationship with the Lord. She's the president of a financial institution and is an active member of her church. However, it seems as if her life is missing something. Although Charmayne knows she's no social butterfly with her weight problems and self-esteem issues, when her beautiful best friend is on her way down the aisle, it becomes painfully clear to Charmayne that she's seriously lacking in the love department. When Travis Moon, the hunky maintenance man at her job, walks into her life, Charmayne sees a glimmer of hope for her romantic endeavors. Beneath the surface, however, are dark secrets that could endanger Charmayne's career, finances, and friendships and further drive her self-worth into the ground. I thoroughly enjoyed Warren's sophomore release. While it held fast to the messages of forgiveness, patience, and listening to God's advice, it was in no way overly preachy or admonishing. Instead, Warren's story spoke for itself. I was a willing participant with Charmayne, and was easily able to feel her deep emotions, frustrations, and humorous moments. This was my first time reading work by this author, but it certainly won't be my last. Reviewed by CandaceK of The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers

I want to be happy

Charmayne Ellis is everything that a lot of people would like to be. Attractive, intelligent, kind hearted, a Christian with a good job. Charmayne is tired of everyone thinking that she needs a man in her life in order to be complete. Although, she's overweight, she still feels like she should have a man of her choosing. Not that she needs a man to be complete, some companionship would be nice. The pastor's wife along with her best friend, keep trying to set her up. The men they select are either rejects or haven't had a date in years. They lack in personality, are too old, or just downright ugly. Both, her mother and sister believe that she's a hopeless case, sprouting that, in order to be considered somebody YOU must be married. Without anyone's assistance, Charmayne meets Travis Moon, a fine, Christian, single, working brother. He's employed at the bank Charmayne manages. At first, she was skeptical about accepting a lunch date because of their working environment, but Charmayne decides against that. Now happy, people are looking at her, as if she has to BUY Travis. Seeking prayer and guidance from God, Charmayne has asked if Travis is the man for her. God has answered her prayers and she has accepted what the Lord has said but, is she hearing correctly? Are the signs for a GO to marry this strong willed man of God, or to let him go? Farther Than I meant To Go, Longer Than I Meant To Stay, is a very good book! I highly recommend!!!
