Don't Blame the Devil by Pat G'Ore-Walker - 5 starsI haven't read anything this funny in years. Delilah and Thurgood are a old school couple that spent 40 years trying to find their way back to each other. After a hot mess at a night club separated their family, another drama filled few months may bring them back together. G'Orge-Walker is a master writer of Christian comedy. I was falling on the floor laughing at Delilah's antics while Sister Marty was praying for the families salvation. Jessie, Tamara and countless church members fell in line keeping secrets, playing church and all things that families do.
Really enjoyed this!
You can’t Blame The Devil for everything, especially when she shows up 40 years later. Deacon Pillar has more skeletons in his closet than a graveyard. One he thought was long gone shows up in the church parking lot. Delilah has her own interpretation of religion, and she thinks she’s owed something. Delilah looks like Lena Horne, sings like an angel but is hell in a Navigator. She and the deacon have some unfinished business that has come to pass. Unknowingly the time has come. The aging but still sassy diva has found some skeletons too that she abandoned but had been searching for, wrapped up in a neat package that includes Deacon Pillar. Jessie and Tamara have no clue what is going on between the deacon and Delilah, or that there is any history. They are wondering what in the devil got into the deacon little do they know the devil is Delilah, and the deacon also finds out you can’t bargain with her either. Don’t Blame the Devil is a 5 Star story was really hilarious. Pat G’Orge Walker did a phenomenal job with this "Devilishly" funny tale.
Prepare for deceit, faith, and love in G’orge-Walker’s Don’t Blame the Devil. Sixty-three year old Delilah finds her way back to her orphaned son and estranged husband after 40 years. Starting in a church parking lot, her life begins to unravel along with her family members. Though initially unwelcome by her son, husband, granddaughter, and her husband’s girlfriend, Delilah eventually finds the love of God and the love of family. This story took a while to build; in fact, the climax was about 50 pages from the book’s end. It seems that this story belongs with a set of related stories that, perhaps, take us through Delilah’s sordid past. The characters’ traits and expressions were well written. G’orge-Walker’s talent is sure to lead her to success in the future..Natasha R. HinesAAMBC Reviewer
I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!! It is always good to read a good drama. Don't Blame the Devil Was full of excitement and laughs and heart-stopping moments. Delilah Dupree Jewel and Decon Pillar are the funniest two characters since Sister Imahellraiser. This book has substance and depth with biblical references - whether is is King James version or Delilah Dupree, and it gives you a true storyline. The cast in this book could be your neighbors because their story is everyday life. Kudos to Pat G'Orge-Walker on this book, keep up the great work!
The book was interesting full of humor and showed how a realtionship that can go sour can reborn again. And that no matter if you were not a every day church goer does not mean that you do not read the bible. And prayer does work.
If you've ever read a book by Pat G'orge Walker, you know you will get the gospel truth, as well as the elderly shenanigans. As always this story had a lot of lessons, a Whole lot of God and a ton of laughs.
This book was awesome!!!!!!!
