Book Title: Couples Therapy
Publisher: Kensington/Urban Books
Synopsis or Blurb: Four couples take a leap of faith when they participate in couples’ therapy, a new ministry at Chicago’s Christian Fellowship Church. The couples are grappling with issues that run the gamut from coping with unemployed children who return to the family nest to an unplanned pregnancy, and the trials and tribulations of a newly married interracial teenage couple.
Meesha Morrison, president of The Helping Hands Club, who proposed couples’ therapy to the church's official board, has ulterior motives for wanting the new ministry to succeed. She's desperate to save her own marriage, since her husband's climb up the corporate ladder leaves her feeling like a single parent.
Secrets and lies are exposed, and stereotypes are shattered in this powerful tale that examines the importance of communication and the power of forgiveness.
