In Beverly Ligon's new book, A Preacher's Daughter ($16.49, paperback, 9781498495837; $8.99; eBook, 9781498495844) Uriah searches through her past to see where she went wrong in order to set things right, all in hope to see her mother again in heaven. As a preacher's daughter, she is raised up in the church and taught how to live a Christian life. However, during her teenage years, she turned away from her religious beliefs and succumbed to earthly desires, which led her into a life full of sex, lies, deceit, and physical and emotional abuse. After finally getting fed up with the way her life was going, Uriah finds the strength to love herself enough to make things better. Just as she progresses, she is hit with another tragic loss. Will this tragedy force her to give up on the God she was taught to believe in, or will she depend even more on Him to get her through?

Ligon says, "So many people (females) can relate to a lot of what I've been through (in the name of love).We have drifted away from our religious belief and what we know is right. I want people to know that God is real and will do exactly what he says He will. He will comfort and keep us even when we have no desire to be kept. Although things happen in our lives that we don't understand, trust God anyway to bring us through."
