Even more timely than when it was written, this novel by Sleem explores discrimination against women in the ministry. When Maggie Dillitz trades in her Harvard MBA and a lucrative career in the business world for a Yale Divinity School degree and a career in ministry, she expects relief from the competitive pressures of business and a life of satisfying service. What Maggie encounters are many subtle and not-so-subtle forms of discrimination against women in ministry, especially against women in pulpit ministries. The title was published in large print hard cover by Simon and Schuster's Thorndike Press in Nov 1998. With chapters set in Jamaica and Boston as well as the deep South, the novel was intended as the first title in a mystery series, and the author is working on the sequel, tentatively titled Fall from Grace.
