Five Star Reviews

Keisha Bass
Congratulations to Brittany Adams. She is the winner of Kathleen Y'Barbo's Sadie's Secrets.

This week I welcome Keisha Bass as my guest. Her new novel, Permanent Resident at the Purse Table released last month to great reviews. Here's a sampling of the 5 Star Reviews on Amazon.

For a debut novelist, Keisha Bass has nailed it. Her mix of ethnic dialog and imagery is wonderful. At times you will chuckle, at times gasp. Her characters seem real and she deals with real life situations openly, but respectfully. Ava, her main character, suffers from poor self esteem due to an over-critical mother and a weight problem. In a country where the norm is now a size 14-16, this is a timely book for every girl or woman, no matter your race, ethnicity or viewpoint.

This was so entertaining & I couldn't put it down. Love the scriptures throughout the story. Great read! I can't wait to read the next one or see the movie.

Its been a while since I've read a good book. I definitely recommend this book! 42 chapters in 4days = good book! I can't wait for the next one Keisha Bass! Thank you for my personalized copy! God is good, All the time!

I loved every word, I did not want it to end. I can't wait until the next one. Real people with real issues working through real problems with God's help. Uplifting! 

Back Cover Copy/Blurb

If you’re size six, you dance. If you’re Ava Alexander, you watch the purses while your girlfriends dance. Each man that passes her by takes a little of her self-esteem. After escaping a mentally abusive relationship, she promises God she will wait on Him to bring her the right man. And she means it—Until Ishmael. When her best friend’s fiancĂ© throws a few compliments her way, she travels down the path of betrayal. Ava’s choice strains her friendship and sends her into a depression.

Ava receives spiritual guidance from Dr. Glory Moses. Through God’s Word, there is a glimpse of hope for a restored friendship, and a newfound love for the woman she is. In addition, a man she meets at the counseling center offers her a glimpse of what could be if she lines up with God’s will for her life. Will Ava be able to overcome her insecurities and step into the life God plans for her, or will she continue to self-destruct?
