Left Bank Books presents author Carl Weber, who will sign and discuss his novel, The Choir Director 2: Runaway Bride (Grand Central Publishing, August 2014), on Wednesday, August 20, 7pm, at the Schlafly Branch of the St. Louis Public Library (225 N. Euclid).
It’s been three years since Aaron Mackie succeeded in helping his friend and mentor, Bishop T.K. Wilson, dig his ministry out of financial ruin. With his life in order, Aaron decides the time is right to propose to Tia Gregory, the church secretary who inspired him to shed his Tiger Woods-like tendencies to become a one-woman man. But the wedding of the year quickly becomes the disaster of the year when Aaron is left at the alter without explanation. Now, during his own hour of need, Aaron turns to the bishop for help. Unfortunately, the line he asks T.K. to cross will force the bishop to choose between faith and friendship, or as he puts it, “between heaven and hell.”
A review of The Choir Director 2 from Publishers Weekly says, “Weber…successfully explores the multiple mega problems challenging this church family and scores again with a lively mix of church politics and bedroom follies.” RT Book Reviews claims, “Weber weaves a tale so captivating, thrilling, sexy and insane that it’s enough to make a preacher curse.”
