Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The author of the hit Redemption Song returns with a sparkling new novel about looking for love in all the wrong places—and with all the wrong people.

Full of spirit and wisdom, the novels of Bertice Berry bring to life a rich tapestry of human experience. Now she turns her eye to matters of the heart, with an endearing main character who cant seem to keep bad men out of her life.

Bernita Brown is a quick-thinking, tireless social worker who is good at practically everything—except love. Her first marriage ends in divorce, a painful experience Bernita refuses to think about. Instead, she dives into a series of sad relationships and overwhelming commitments to community and church. But not even church can keep her from being courted by dogs; Bernitas married pastor begins making passes at her, then blames her for his backsliding. Along the way, the ghost of Bernitas aunt Babe weighs in with plenty of advice (after all, Aunt Babe says, “You dont need to be alive to tell folks how to live”). When a marvelous man finally enters Bernitas life, only time can tell whether she will be able to trust him.

Written with Berrys signature warmth and reliance on African-American ancestors who deliver homespun healing, When Love Calls, You Better Answer addresses a host of powerful topics, from abusive relationships to corrupt church leaders. Ultimately, Bernitas story will inspire readers to find the love they need, especially the love that can only come from within.

Synopsis:

Bernita Brown's appalling luck with men is legendary. Will the wisdom of a dearly departed aunt break the curse? Find out in this sweetly humorous new novel from Bertice Berry.
