Book: The Ex Files: A Novel About Four Women and Faith
Author: Victoria Christopher Murray
Review: August 18, 2007
The Ex-Files is a story that every woman that has had an EX can relate to. The four women in this story have been hurt emotionally and spiritually and are not handling their heartbreak well. Their pastor arranges the four of them to meet for prayer once a week.
Initially, these four women felt as though they had nothing in common and thought this prayer group would be a waste of time. However, little did they know, that they had more in common that they even realized.
If you are struggling with issues with an Ex. If you are hanging on to past hurts. If you are trying to forgive a family member, then I suggest you read The Ex-files. This novel will truly be a blessing and hopefully begin the healing process for you.
There are four ways a woman can handle heartbreak. She can fall apart, seek revenge, turn cold, or move on. The Ex Files is the story of these four women:
When Kendall Stewart finds her husband and her sister in bed together, she vows to never let anyone get that close again. But when she is faced with saving the life of the woman who destroyed hers, will she be able to forgive?
When an NBA superstar tells his mistress, Asia Ingrum, that he’s decided to honor his marriage vows, her shock quickly gives way to revenge…but her decision may come back to haunt their five-year-old daughter.
Every night Vanessa Martin wonders why her husband committed suicide. Even worse, she contemplates joining him in eternity. Will Vanessa be able to gather the strength to live again?
Sheridan Hart is finally finding her way after a lie destroyed her seventeen-year marriage. Her new love is ready to get married, but will she commit to this younger man or is her ex-husband taking up too much space in her heart?
When their pastor asks Kendall, Asia, Vanessa, and Sheridan to meet weekly for prayer, they can’t imagine they will have anything in common. But then a devastating tragedy strikes and these strangers are forced to reexamine their choices.
Will they find true friendship, or will prayer — and their union — fail them?
