FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla (PRWEB) February 23, 2013
Taking inspiration from her own life experiences, author Geraldine McCall pens the story of a woman who winds up with a man much different than the one she thought she married in the sprawling new novel, “Unequally Yoked” (published by iUniverse).
“I learned about the topic by living it,” McCall bluntly states. “This is the story of my failed marriage.”
“Unequally Yoked” centers around the life of Valerie Chase, a happily single woman living in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., who loves her church – African Missionary Baptist Church – her family and her friends. After Hurricane Wilma destroys much of the area, Oscar Bradford, a man she’s dated off and on for several years, convinces Valerie to let him move into a vacant bedroom in her home. The majority of the book focuses on what happens after Oscar moves in and the rollercoaster of emotions that Valerie experiences after she realizes that Oscar, who she winds up marrying, has a problem.
“Many women have made bad decisions and experienced pain, loss and heartache at the hands of someone they loved,” McCall writes. “Women the world over have attended church all their lives and have preachers, ministers, deacons and deaconesses on a pedestal, not realizing they too are only human. This book will show just how human they are.”
