I was very intrigued by this story, more so for the situation than the actual events, which were a bit cliche in some respect.
For some people it may be a shocker (the ending definitely is!), but the attitudes presented are very familiar within the modern day church. Many so called "Christians" are a bit hypocritical.
To anyone that is familiar with the black church and social relations, I would definitely recommend this.
Set in the urban church, after the death of the first lady, four women compete to win the heart of the pastor to decide who will be the next wife. There's Marlene, the pastor's former girlfriend, mother of his child. Second, there's Monique, the woman constantly in the eye of the men and woman of the church due to her voluptuous body dressed in skintight clothes as well as her widely known flirtatious manner. Third in line, Savannah, a long-haired beauty who is helped to reach her dreams as a solo artist by the pastor himself. Last but not least, there's Sister Lisa Mae, who is seemingly the ideal match: already established in the church business, friend to the former first lady, and an acceptable choice to the church, but does she have what it takes to win his heart?
The character that will stand out is Sister Monique, since she manages to seduce the pastor into her bed before he realizes what's going on. Tension ensues when Monique's period is late. Is she carrying the pastor's next offspring?
