Have you ever trusted God for something so strong, that nothing else mattered?
Not wanting to be ‘spoilt goods’, Sister Georgina holds onto her virginity as evidence of her fundamentalist Christian beliefs. However, she never anticipated the challenges facing an African American woman in Washington D.C. with a very limited supply of eligible men and her growing sexual frustration.
Sister Georgina’s faith in God is unwavering and she strives to be the perfect Christian woman in order to be the perfect Christian wife. Without hesitation or reservation, she pushes her beliefs onto everyone who is willing (or not willing) to listen and doesn’t mind that her quest for “holy perfection” leads straight into a world of alienation. Despite the obstacles, she believes that by sticking to God’s plan, He will provide the man of her dreams. Unfortunately, Sister Georgina discovers that things don’t always go as planned.
The Righteous Sin follows the evolution of Sister Georgina from a child through adulthood as she seeks to make sense of the world in which she finds herself. But an unspoken request, together with thoughts that have “haunted” her since childhood, finally awakens something deep within, causing her to take an unexpected turn in her journey by committing the Righteous Sin.
Sister Georgina learned at an early age the art of prayer and being a faithful servant of God and your marriage. Watching her mother, she vowed to one day live up to her righteousness. In doing so Sister Georgina became a faithful steward of the church.
Can someone be too Holy? Sister Georgina in her quest to be the best Christian possible becomes the type of Christian most people avoid. She’s condescending and arrogant yet she doesn’t see that in herself. She only sees her services to the church and God in the best way.
The growth of Sister Georgina is also hindered by her almost passive ways. No, she doesn’t let people tell her what to do, or how to do it, but her interpretation of faith and the lesson she learned from her mother stunted her growth. This act leads Sister Georgina down the path of acceptance. Budding on the age of 40 Sister Georgina was desperate to fulfill her just cause, a wife, and mother. This lead to her pursuing and accepting a proposal from a man that wasn’t even into her. Like He didn’t have any feelings for Sister Georgina at all. Three years into the marriage and still a virgin, Sister Georgina almost has an awakening.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review. And honestly, I put it down several times. I couldn’t get into it, in the beginning, chapeters. Sister Georgina worked my last nerve with her righteous. However never failing to complete a review, I started over and over until finally I completed this novel. The book was well written, the characters cause emotions to stem within you. The development and process of the storyline were well thought out. I just couldn’t get past that first couple of chapters. They were detailed and progressed at a slow pace. Overall this book has a lesson buried deep within if you can trudge past the beginning.
