"My wife also read the book, and, surprisingly, liked it a lot.
She's a tough critic, and a pentecostal minister to boot."
E. Alan Long, Carroll County
Newspapers, Berryville, Arkansas
"I did enjoy the books. Sarah is a part
of so many individual personalities that we all know- even our own
at times. I became absorbed with her antics and yet wanting to
better understand and accept her tribulations while hoping she can
finally learn from her mistakes. ... A small Southern town with the
complexity of personalities living there, each with his/her own
problem-solving and the judgmental traits so often found is told in
an absorbing manner. I feel like I have known Sarah for many years,
and yet her characterization is fresh and exciting. I want to
respond, 'Tell me more'"
J. Huge Vernon, Houston, TX
"Just finished The Spiritual Side of Sarah today and it was GREAT! I
could hardly put it down once I started reading it. My husband Jeff
is an ordained minister and raised in the Pentecostal Church. He and
I talked and laughed a lot about Sarah and he says Patricia Paris
got it all down right which must have required enormous research.
Jeff says he knew a lot of "Sarahs" in his day, those who thought
they were spiritually helping people with their lies. We also
discussed the recounting of the Tent Revival Evangelist and how Ms.
Paris got that right on the money too. I really got into Sarah but a
few times I wanted to slap her silly because she never seemed to
learn. This book is begging for a sequel!"
J. Ramey, The Christian Arsenal,
"Hats off to Patricia Paris for the
delightful The Spiritual Side of Sarah. As with her first book, I
was again appreciative of the attention given to nostalgic detail
and the author's blending of the true characters of a given era with
fictional ones. Many a Tennessean will identify with shopping at
country music promoter/grocery chain operator Cas Walker's. Sarah
and her self-serving escapades had me laughing aloud, especially
those with the tent preacher."
"This preacher's wife gives The
Spiritual Side of Sarah an A+ although I won't be giving this book
to my young granddaughter to read for a few years. Sarah deserves a
sequel; maybe we can make a saint outta her yet!."
"The Spiritual Side of Sarah sure kept
my attention. That Sarah is one ornery little lady. Couldn't help
but love her though. I have no doubt that anyone who picks up this
book will love it"
"Early on Patricia Paris moves easily
between characters developing them thru internal dialog. We see
right away Sarah saying and doing what she needs to get what she
wants. I notice unique interesting descriptions that typify good
writing. Very nice. Sarah's character is the primary one we see and
I find her disturbingly familiar. She's a hypocrite but so am I and
so are you. So are we all.
"But she is more than that. Hopefully
when we repent we know why and what for and come to the real Lord to
have a relationship with Him.
"The story Patricia Paris has given
us is not that one but it is one well worth reading. This story
reinforces my own experience that the Holy Spirit resides in
buildings of flesh rather than brick and mortar."
