 About the Book 

I had handled all of my conference obligations. The quiet of my hotel room and the king-sized bed were welcome rewards. Then the phone rang. Hello, I said, trying to sound a little energetic. Hi Ronni. Eric Lewis here. Hey, I know youre leavingMoreI had handled all of my conference obligations. The quiet of my hotel room and the king-sized bed were welcome rewards. Then the phone rang. Hello, I said, trying to sound a little energetic. Hi Ronni. Eric Lewis here. Hey, I know youre leaving soon and Id like to see you tonight. Please say yes? There was something different in Erics request. Maybe he thought I would be a cure for his being homesick. I wasnt quite sure, but something in his voice connected and I knew I couldnt refuse him, and said yes. Im on my way. Be there in a few. Click. ------------------------------------- As I drove closer to the hotel I wondered whether I would be met with any of Ronnis famous silver bullet questions. What was I thinking coming over like this? Did I think that shed fall all over me? Of course not. Shes an amazing woman and I know it usually comes back to God with her. Any answer I might give without some spiritual connection would probably be shot down so I thought, even before I arrive, I may as well prepare to exit as gracefully as I could. ---------------------------------------- I fell back on the bed. What was I thinking? I didnt want to fall victim to one of my flesh backs - that passion-plagued pothole that was once Erics and my trademark. I looked in the mirror. I heard a scream and realized it was coming from within me: Help me somebody? H.V. Bennett and W.E. Lawson offer a unique female/male perspective of She Thought, He Thought, moreso than She Said, He Said. These fictional characters may ring true for many readers. Is this love deferred a delay, a deception, a delight, or a delusion? Is it Man-Manufactured or God-Given?
