Good women's fiction Dec 21, 2006
Four women with very different problems end up attending P.O.W.E.R meetings, Purpose Oriented Women Equipped and Righteous. They're not sure they want to be there, and at first they are reluctant to open up and share. There's Zora Bridgeforth who recently lost her parents in a tragic accident, just a few months before the date of her wedding. While going through their papers, Zora discoveres that the people she called Mother and Dad were not really her birth parents. She was adopted. She's still trying to work through her grief and now she has been hit with this.
Monet Sullivan, Zora's best friend, is helping plan for the wedding. Monet is single, and hasn't had much success playing the love game. Tired of being disappointed in her relationships with the opposite sex, she's ready to give up, but God has a plan.
Paula Manns married for status and money and it turned to ashes in her hands. Her husband is seldome home, he's gambling away their money and she suspects he's having an affair.
And then there's Belinda, whose mother has cancer. She and her husband, Thomas, have just adopted a six month old daughter, Hannah, and Belinda is the primary caretaker for her mother. She's stressed to the max, with no relief in sight.
Zora's Cry is a heartwarming, touching story about four women struggling to make sense of their lives. It's a tribute to the strong bonds of sisterhood, and as the four women strive to overcome the roadblocks in their journey to God, we learn from their situations. When Belinda is overwhelmed by the changes in her life, she complains to God about being taken by surprise. He replies, "You may be caught off guard, but I never am." No, He's not, and that's one of life's greatest blessings. Tia McCollors characters are realistic and well developed. I thorougly enjoyed reading Zora's Cry, and I'm happy to recommend it.

An excellent choice that honors culture and faith Aug 14, 2006
While browsing the bookshelves at my local Christian bookstore, I picked up Tia McCollors's Zora's Cry. I didn't know what to expect, but I was initially drawn to the book when I noticed that the author was an african-american woman. Once I began reading the book-- digesting it's contents, message, characters--I was completely hooked and couldn't put it down. Not only were Tia McCollors's literary skills on display throughout this book, but also her adherence to biblical standards and her obvious connection to contemporary african american culture. Needless to say, I was thoroughly impressed and am now a committed fan. I am thankful for the gifted ministry God has given to you, Tia McCollors. Your book has inspired and encouraged me!
Zora's Cry is a great book. Tia has opened two genres in one book. She writes this book as a Christian Fiction but opened the door for a Mystery. I can't wait to find out what happens to the characters in this book.
