The Book

Shar Gracey wants nothing more than to sing the
Lord’s praises, so she jumps at the chance to join a traveling choir led by the
father of black gospel music, Thomas A. Dorsey. Better yet, the opportunity
will give her money to pay for her ailing mother’s medical care.

While on tour she falls under the tutelage of
gospel great Mahalia Jackson—and falls for the handsome but not-so-great Nicoli
James, whose desires for Shar are fueled by his own greed. Shar would do
anything for Nicoli—and he knows it—so when his life is threatened after a night
of gambling, Shar agrees to help pay Nicoli’s debt, only to have her faith and
dreams shattered.

Reeling from the betrayal, Shar loses her voice
and she believes that she will never sing again. She has no place to run except
back home to her seriously ill mother—and the man she left behind, who would
move heaven and earth to make Shar’s pain go away. Even if it means he has to
let her go . . . again.

Vanessa has been writing since she was a young

glorify God.

Series. She is currently working on the Forsaken series, Second Chance at Love
series and a single title, Long Time Coming. Vanessa believes that each book
will touch readers across the country in a special way. It is, after all, her
