Ms. Philyaw really spent some time with these characters and made them into fully formed, tangible beings. You can tell she loved them despite exposing their flaws and contradictions. I was so engrossed by each one and felt like I really knew them. The Secret Lives of Church Ladies is a treasure of a work. I found myself at once wanting to hurry and finish every story but also wanting to slowly savor them too.
fantastic. just full of interesting and specifically relatable tales. this narrator is thee best too!!
The stories in this book are as unique as the women who tell them. All intertwined with a piece of religion, philosophy and with a twist you couldn't believe. I enjoyed this book. Some stories are more captivating than others, but a good listen while driving to Thanksgiving dinner with your sister.
The book was filled with surprises and the unexpected. Definitely a page turner. Loved the narrator.
Enjoyed the story and enjoyed the narrator.
