This little book is packed with a powerful message to women of faith. It describes a brilliant woman who ignored the "writings on the walls" - even her own instincts - about a man she knew little about. And paid dearly, for doing so. I know many women from all walks of life - educated, financially secure, attractive, homeowners (outright), single, and leaders in our community who have been bamboozled like Cora. This book reminds us that we too can fall victims if we are not watchful. I can't wait for Part II.
