Description
NOW A NETFLIX MOVIE Bishop T.K. Wilson, the popular pastor of the largest African-American church in Queens, New York, has decided to run for borough president. But his family values platform is on shaky ground, because the Wilson kids are giving in to the same temptations as any other young adults. And their parents have no idea what's going on behind closed doors... As the bishop's son, Dante Wilson is treated like royalty. Personable and smart, he's expected to assume his father's position one day. The problem is, Dante wants to be a lawyer, and that's not the only secret he's keeping. Dante's younger sister, Donna, is as sweet as they come, yet she isn't exactly the virginal princess her beloved daddy thinks she is. And thanks to her suspicious, ambitious mother, he's about to find that out—and more. Even Bishop Wilson has some skeletons in his closet. Now all the Wilsons will have to face their demons...and discover what family values are really about. CATCH UP WITH BISHOP T.K. WILSON AND CHURCH MEMBERS IN THESE BOOKS So You Call Yourself a Man The First Lady Up to No Good The Choir Director

        December 13, 2004
        A pillar of the community runs for local office on a family values platform and is undone by those in his household in Weber's (Player Haters,
        etc.) entertaining novel. Bishop T.K. Wilson, head of the largest African-American church in Queens, N.Y., enters the race for borough president. He is a formidable candidate with an unmatched record of good works in the community, and he has the support of his devoted wife, Charlene, and their two children: Dante, a recent college graduate; and popular 20-year-old Donna. Trouble rears its head when Donna's secret affair with Terrance Reynolds, her father's protégé, takes an ugly turn; meanwhile, Dante's budding relationship with Tanisha Jones, a girl from the projects who struggles to care for her crack addict mother and 12-year-old brother, rubs Charlene the wrong way. Everyone is keeping secrets, but the most devastating one—involving the troubled pasts of Charlene and the bishop himself—is revealed as the election approaches and the bishop's leadership of the church is threatened. Using rotating narrators to provide close-up accounts of events as they occur, Weber spins a lively, revelation-packed tale deepened by genuine emotion, convincing detail and smart dialogue. Agent, Marie Brown. Author tour.
