Great follow up!

Ok, first off let me say, that I am a big fan of Kendra Norman Bellemy who also happens to be this auothers mother. Now when I heard, and saw that her daughter Brittany holmes had wrote a book, I knew that the apple couldn't have fallen to far from the tree, and let me tell you people, I was RIGHT! This young lady can lay it on good, and thick for the youth of today. Being young herself when he wrote her first novel {16 years old} helped add to the hipiness, and freahiess of her books. Ms. Homles 1st book centered around 6 high school seniors that go through a series of up's, as well as down, like must often youth does to today. As the story goes on, these 18 year olds go through things that will either make them, or break them, all while shaping who they are, and who they will be. In the follow up to that book these same chacters go through even more. Now in college while two of the them have kids of there own, others have learned to deal with what there lives have become. Some are pleased, and other's are not. As the story unfold's, an secrets are reviled, and they all will learn what it means to trust God through anything, when the relationships they are in are being tested. Weather to trust God to see them through it, or take matters in to there own hands. I now must say though for the fact that I am now also a Big fan of Kendra Norman Bellamy, and Brittany Holmes, the Mother~Daugther duo.

Testing Relationships

Testing Relationships by Brittany Holmes delves into the lives of a group of friends who have all decided to be saved and live a life for Christ. Mainly, they are practicing abstinence. Holmes shows the struggles that come with this new lifestyle. Shimone Johnson and Marques Anderson have dated since high school. They are now both in college and have a daughter, Ebony, that is three. Will Marques be able to keep his word to Shimone and God? Shimone has to also deal with forgiveness. Someone enters her life that she is not quite sure if she could ever forgive. Shimone's best friend, Neveah, appears to have the perfect relationship with her boyfriend, Ronald. That is until his family is torn apart by betrayal and abuse. Hoping that Ronald does not shut her out, Nevaeh does all she can to stand by her man. Necole, Ronald's sister, and Imani, Neveah's sister, are best friends. They have great examples to look up to but they are still tempted to go against what is right. Holmes does a great job telling this story from the perspective of young people. The scenarios are very relatable and can happen to anyone. Real situations such as STDs, abuse, suicide, and cheating are all in this story. Readers see how prayer can change things. Holmes is definitely one of the up-and-coming authors in Urban Christian fiction. Donnica Copeland APOOO BookClub Sista Talk Book Club


"Testing Relationships" Current mood: rejected "Testing Realtionships" by Brittney Holmes is an excllent urban christian novel. Brittney told a great story from a young person's point of view. She tells a story of deep love and betrayl. She showed you how easily it is for someone from all faith levels is tempted and can fall victim to temption. I loved how she used a group of friends and how each friend had their own problems in life, but in the end, all you have if your family and friends. I also loved how she showed that some realtionships can be resolved and others can't. She also showed that even tho' you may be 'saved', but if you did something WRONG pior to to it, you still have to live with the circumstances that follow that. All in all, Brittany did a wonderful job with this novel. Thanks Brittany! Can't wait to meet you!!!!
