Reviews - What do customers think about Crossing Jhordan's River (Lift Every Voice)?
Forgiveness is the rule, not the exception Apr 2, 2006
Anything worth having is worth fighting for, but how hard is it supposed to be? Kelli Adams knew that marrying Jhordan, the love of her life, wouldn't always be perfect, but she never expected to be completely rejected after less than a year of marriage. Surely, a wife could expect love and affection from her husband on the regular. Crossing Jhordan's River is more than Christian fiction, or romantic fiction, or chick lit, or all the other labels we may try to put on it. It's a story that could be about any one of us, trying to live with the choices we've made without beating ourselves up over things we can't change. Jhordan and Kelli learn lessons of forgiveness in different ways. Jhordan let his past take center stage in his present. Kelli, not knowing Jhordan's motivation for doing so, allowed herself to become enamored of a man while she was at her weakest point: trying to make her husband love her completely again. Jhordan's "river of guilt" became a chasm of distrust in their marriage. As unfair as it was to Kelli, Jhordan held his love for her hostage in an effort to protect his heart. Kelli, on the other hand, seemed to hurriedly jump ship toward another man, despite warnings from friends and family. The passion, the strength, the pain, and the love could be felt on every page. Wonderful job, Kendra!

This book was beautifully written. I fell in love with all of the characters and I truly enjoyed it. My heart went out to Jhordan and all that he went through. Kelli and Jhordan were truly amazing and had alot of obstacles against them.
Keep up the good work.

Beautiful Job Feb 8, 2006
What an inspirational novel about Love,Family,Friends and Relationships. Jhordan and Kelli are newlyweds and their marriage is in trouble. Jhordan is the man that every woman in life wants God to send her he is gorgeous, hardworking and a true family man but he has some issues in the bedroom that are about to take a toll on this family. This was a pageturner I could not put it down. At times though I felt Kelli was given a raw deal. This is what African American fiction is all about.
