Item description for Soul Matters by Yolanda Sanders...
Wendy, a teacher and young Christian woman, is accustomed to living the good life with her wealthyhusband.

"Soul Matters" is Food for the Soul Feb 10, 2007
This was an awesome debut novel for the author. This book exposed the "lukewarm" Christians of today. It gave all facets of the Christianity Stuggle. From how do you react when the water gets hot? How do you handle the skeletons rattling in your closet? How to fix a back stabbing "friend"? What can happen when you jump to conclusions and not have the "Fruits of the Spirit" working in your life? This book has it all. A great read. The flow,intrigue and element of surprise of the book keep it very interesting. Ironically, it was the man initially labeled "the dog" in the story line, who proved to have more moral values than the self proclaimed "do good righteous women". After reading this book you are sure to understand someone in your life just a little bit better. Keep up the good work Yolanda! The Regal Sister's are anxiously awaiting your next novel.
Excellent book Jan 3, 2007
I have had friends in similar situations like the woman in the book. It was a very good read.
Wonderful Read Jun 16, 2006
I enjoyed this novel and would definitely like to read another by this author. It showed that what we think we see is not always the truth. This novel explored human nature and the importance of befriending people that have integrity!
A Powerfully Wonderful Debut! Apr 26, 2006
Soul Matters was a powerful and inspirational testament to the trials and tribulations Christians may experience in their walk with God.
The story dealt with some real life issues and how they may challenge our faith and our relationship with God, the Father.
Will we lean and draw closer to him in times of adversity or will we take matters into our own hands?
I really appreciated one of the messages resonated throughout the book...do not look to others for your salvation, seek God for yourself, the church is not perfect because we are not perfect! God accepts us and loves us in spite of all our faults and short-comings, he is a God of more than a second chance!
I want to extend a hearty congratulations to Ms. Sanders for a wonderfully powerful story of inspiration for the soul!
I am looking forward to your next work! May God continue to shower you with his bountiful blessing!!!

Silver Rating recommended read Apr 2, 2006
Sanders writes a good story that starts slow but picks up quickly. Though the main character was a bit hard to cheer for it was an easy read with lots of moral introspection sparked by the subtle prompting of the story line. The plot has been done but is presented in a way that makes you want to make it to the end. The sub characters steal the scenes away from the main characters at time but not in a way that makes it hard to complete the story. An easy story that delivers in the morals department although a little slow at times. While hosting more than the desired number of predictable characters still a great read which is why it received a Silver rating.
