Long Time Coming
Abingdon Press (November 1, 2010)
Vanessa Miller


Vanessa Miller of Dayton, Ohio, is a best-selling author, playwright, and motivational speaker. Her stage productions include: Get You Some Business, Don’t Turn Your Back on God, and Can’t You Hear Them Crying. Vanessa is currently in the process of turning the novels in the Rain Series into stage productions.

Vanessa has been writing since she was a young child. When she wasn’t writing poetry, short stories, stage plays and novels, reading great books consumed her free time. However, it wasn’t until she committed her life to the Lord in 1994 that she realized all gifts and anointing come from God. She then set out to write redemption stories that glorify God.

To date, Vanessa has completed the Rain and Storm Series. She is currently working on the Forsaken series, Second Chance at Love series and a single title, Long Time Coming. Vanessa believes that each book will touch readers across the country in a special way. It is, after all, her God-given destiny to write and produce plays and novels that bring deliverance to God’s people. These books have received rave reviews, winning Best Christian Fiction Awards and topping numerous Bestseller’s lists.


Two women from different worlds find hope together.

Faithful Christian Deidre Clark-Morris is a professional career-minded woman with a loving husband, but no children. Kenisha Smalls has lived in poverty all her life. She has three children by three different men and has just been diagnosed with inoperable cervical cancer.

While the meeting between these two women appears accidental, it becomes their catalyst of hope. Neither woman expects the blessing that God has in store for her. While Deidre will guide Kenisha on the path to eternal life with Jesus Christ, Kenisha will teach Deidre how to stand strong against the hard-knocks of life.

My Review

Vanessa Miller did an excellent job with this book.  I was hooked from the beginning.  Loved reading and finding out how life would play out for these women, both with struggles, both with doubts, both with fears.  Loved how she wove their lives together even though they were so different, one from the projects and one middle class.  Love how what started out as a bad situation ended with Deidra becoming such a wonderful friend.  
This book is not only enjoyable, it is motivational.  It really makes you want to find your “Kenisha” and make a difference in her life.  It makes you think about the blessings you have and how you can use those to impact someone else, not only physically but spiritually.  It really helps you to remember why we are here!!  
She does a great job addressing the issue of what appears to be “unanswered prayers”.  God’s timing is “on time”, it just may not be our time.
I really enjoyed the emotional roller coaster this book took me on.  The ups and downs, the laughter and the tears.  I would recommend this book to everyone.    Definitely one of the best I have read/reviewed this year!!
Thank you Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for the complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
Happy Reading!!
