When Perfection Fails by Tyora Moody



Excerpt from When Perfection Fails

No one had the perfect life even if they went to church. Serena’s mamma dragged her to church when she was younger. All that shouting sure didn’t stop what happened to Serena. Seemed like her life had become one big heartache after another. She concentrated on what she was good at – getting the story.

“The truth shall set you free.” Serena spoke as she closed out the church website. “Serena will certainly bring you the truth, honey.”

An email notification popped up in the right hand corner of Serena’s computer. She glanced at the notification as it faded away. A name caught her attention. She clicked over to see her full mailbox and opened the email. The FROM line was from somebody named Lance Ryan.

“Two first names? Really?” Serena sat up straight in her chair.  “Let’s see what Lance Ryan has to say.”

Ms. Manchester,
I thought you might want to know there is trouble brewing in your city. You may be the best person to help bring justice. Would you be interested in meeting for more information?  I promise you won’t be disappointed. You will thank me later.

Thank you later. The boldness of this man with his two first names.

Serena smiled and hit reply. She typed, “Mr. Lance Ryan. I look forward to meeting you. Name the time and the place.”

She hit send. Who knows? Lance Ryan might be the man she was looking for in her life. With that she laughed and grabbed her bag. Desperation does not suit you, girl.


About the Book

Reverend Jonathan Freeman and his wife Lenora are quickly becoming Charlotte’s “it” couple. All eyes are on them as Jonathan is named pastor of a church following the death of his father and Lenora has become a sought-after wedding planner. The Freeman's are media darlings and a model couple; the picture of perfection. Or are they?
Behind the scenes, Jonathan struggles with his role as pastor of a megachurch while Lenora grows increasingly and uncharacteristically distant. A number of odd and tragic incidents push her further away from the love of her life and the facade of perfection begins to crack.
A carefully guarded secret catches up with Lenora and it threatens her security as well as that of her family. Has an imperfect past finally caught up with her? Will the ghost of someone she thought long dead rise like Lazarus from the grave and destroy all she has worked to preserve? Or will Lenora fight to protect the man she loves and the beautiful life God has blessed her to have?

Sample Poem from the book

Life

In life, some things are the same
Some things are different
When things change, we don’t always like them
Change is not easy
It takes time to do things in a different way than we are used to
Always do your best
You have it inside you to do the best you can with everything you do
No one can stop you but you

No matter who you are or what you do, always remain to be you.
