Item description for The Taste Of Good Fruit by Marita Teague...
Overview "When Sydney is suddenly widowed, the preacher's daughter--who made sure her life not only followed the Word but a well-planned schedule--doesn't know which way to turn. Although she knows her Scripture, nothing gives Sydney comfort--not the love of her sister, Sherese, or her best friend, Chanel. The black sheep of the family, Sherese could never abide by her parents' rules, and the demands of the church seemed outrageous to her. But when she learns a devastating secret about her past, Sherese realizes that if she doesn't have faith to lean on in a crisis what does she have? Chanel has come a long way from her impoverished childhood; now she has all the trappings of success: a good business, a loving husband, a beautiful child. But when life is not up to her expectations she allows temptation into her cozy family. All becomes exposed and Chanel realizes she needs something bigger than herself to reconcile the terrible mess she has made."--p.  of cover.

It's simple...GET THIS BOOK! Dec 9, 2008
This book is so well written that it will make you feel as if you actually know the characters, and are in the book with them. I actually CRIED OUT LOUD with these ladies! I also rejoiced with them in their faith. It's perfect. You won't need a dictionary every other page, but you know that it is not written for a fourth grader either. The author skillfully uses the main characters as narrators which allows the reader to "get in their heads", without getting confused. Get one for yourself, your mom, and your BFF. It's a great book for discussion. Clear your calendar for the day you read this because you won't be able to stop once you start.
A Powerful Book!!! Dec 1, 2008
The Taste of Good Fruit is an excellent book. It starts out with the storyline in the beginning of the book. It is a book that you can read on and on easily and cannot put it down. I can really picture the characters in my mind as I read this book. I would recommend this book to anyone.
Leaves you feeling uplifted Nov 6, 2008
This is a story that entertains while encouraging the reader. The characters are regular people--down to earth--who have a lot to learn about who they are and why their plans are not always God's plans. The author, MaRita Teague, is an excellent storyteller and if you enjoy reading fiction that gives you something to think about and leaves you feeling uplifted, this is the book for you!
Outstanding!!! A must read Oct 24, 2008
The "Taste of Good Fruit" is "Outstanding"!!! This is a "Must Read". It is extremely well written, and so true to life. I feel as if I really know Sydney, Chanel and Sherese. Although primarily from an affiliate perspective, I could actually understand and appreciate each character's scenario.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it. I strongly encourage and challenge everyone who hasn't read the book, to go online or to your local bookstore and secure your copy. Add a copy for a friend (makes a great Christmas gift).
The Taste of Good Fruit Sep 25, 2008
Simply wonderful! I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. I could not put it down...I was so touched by the powerful and overwhelming spiritual message of the book that it kept me captivated. I don't see how anyone who reads this beautifully written book would not be moved. I could see so much of my own life in some of the characters. The author does an outstanding job of allowing the reader to actually feel like you are right there with the characters. I absolutely loved the book and am anxious to read more from this wonderful author. I was truly blessed by this reading!
