Preying On The Church, is an inspiring novel about an African American middle-age woman Margie, who is well-known in her community through her job as a Realtor, serving as a representative on the Rockford Town Council, and giving her portion of life at Rockford Baptist Church.
A tragic accident happens that no one could ever believe. After a church shooting, Margie loses faith as her life is shattered into pieces losing someone close to her that causes her to journey through the five stages of grief.
It takes her to the lowest possible point of survival: isolating herself from friends and family, losing faith, drinking alcohol, almost getting arrested, and losing her job to realize she is on a path of destruction.
The paramedics placed Margie on the stretcher and rushed her outside to the ambulance while the cops placed tape around the church, which is to determine a murder scene.
Meanwhile at home, Barry heard the news on television. Wait, Margie and Jason are at the church. Why did no one call me?
He jumped up, put on his shoes, grabbed his keys, and ran out the door to his work truck.
When he arrived at the church, Barry glanced around the church and noticed red and blue lights blinking from all the police cars. There were crowds of people surrounding the church. He heard the cops telling everyone to move away and go home.
He ran up to the tape and his eyes widened as he realized that something terrible had happened inside. Barry started screaming, “Where are my wife and son? Where is wife and my son? Can somebody tell me where they are?”
“Calm down, sir,” said the detective. “I’m Detective Earl. Four of the victims have been rushed to the hospital, but we haven’t identified the bodies inside yet.”
“I can help you identify some of the victims because I attend this church with my family and I practically know everyone!” yelled Barry.
Barry knew that would be the only way to get inside to see if Jason and Margie were all right.
“Okay, just stay right here, sir, for just a minute.”
The detective went over and talked to the chief of police. They looked back and forth toward Barry and glanced at him sideways with narrow eyes.
