Sins of the Father ARCs

Advanced Reading Copies (ARCs) of my September release, Sins of the Father, arrived on Monday.  If you’re interested in a copy, please comment on this blog post.  All I ask in return is that you write a review on your blog or on Amazon or anywhere and let me know where you post it.  The winners will be announced on June 1.

Sins of Father by Angela Benson

Successful media mogul Abraham Martin has great wealth, an elegant wife, Saralyn, and a rebellious son, Isaac. He also has a secret: a second family that no one knows about. Now, after thirty years—driven by the urging of his long dormant conscience—Abraham is determined to do the right thing by finally bringing his illegitimate children into the light…and into the family fold.

But beautiful, manipulative Saralyn will never accept the proof of her husband’s indiscretions. Isaac the heir, shaken by his father’s revelations, will fight mercilessly when his world is threatened, and may lose everything that matters as a result. And while Abraham’s forgotten daughter Deborah is open to the undreamed-of possibilities suddenly awaiting her, son Michael cannot forgive the man who cruelly abandoned them to near poverty. And he’s driven by only one desire: revenge!

Sins of the Father is a powerful story of a house bitterly divided—a rich, multilayered family saga of betrayal and redemption, rage and compassion, faith, forgiveness, and ultimately, of love.

  1. Wow Angela,

    This sounds too good to be true! I am pretty sure I know where you got your inspiration, so I’m looking forward to your interpretation!

  2. This story sounds really interesting. Can’t wait to read it. I’m sure I’ll enjoy it as much as I have all your others.

  3. I would like a copy. I would love to put this on my church book club list for the summer. I also have friends who really enjoy your writing.
    So I am going to pass the word around to some other book club for the fall. Keep writing!

  4. Your books are great for the following reasons:
    1) Interesting plots that hold my interest.
    2) Unlike “Urban Lit”, you don’t need a half-naked picture on the cover to capture my attention.
    3) I feel comfortable recommending them to Christian friends.
    4) I feel comfortable recommending them to non-Christian friends.
    5) Need I say more!!!!!

  5. I would love to read your new book, it sounds so fascinating! Such an excitng plot concept,and your character development jumps out from the synopsis, not an easy thing to do! 🙂 God bless!

  6. I’d love to read this book. Comes at just the right time. I’m getting my summer beach reads together and this would be perfect!

  7. Angela, I am already drawn to the story because of the names of the characters; Abraham, Saralyn, and Isaac. Girl, you are a mastermind when it comes to weaving in a message from God’s word with your stories!

    Since I read my first Angela Benson book in 2008, I have rediscovered a love for reading. I have also been enriched by the spiritual lessons you teach through each realistic and colorful portrayal of your characters’ experiences.

    I am proud of you and cannot wait to see how Sins of the Father unfolds. Thank you for teaching us how to read the bible too. You position biblical ideals in 21st century situations, so we can laugh while we grow.

    All my best to you!

    I’m proud of you!

  14. Hi Angela,

    I have finished reading “Sins of the Father.” I loved every word. I need your help. I’m ready to post the review on my blog, I am also ready to post the review on Amazon or Powellbooks and ApoooBooks. Is it alright for me to go ahead and publish the review? Thanks for your help.


  15. Ms. Benson – thank you!. Saw that I was one of the luck winners of an ARC of you newest – Sins of the Father. I can’t wait to receive. Don’t know if
    I’ll be able to hold off an read which vacationing. I just might have to read as soon as a I receive! Keep writing the wonderful, inspiring, stories that you do.

    Be blessed.


  16. Ms. Benson – I just finished reading the ARC of Sins of the Father. WOW! I loved the book. I hope there is a continuation/sequel. I need to know more! The characters were well developed – some you loved; others you just downright hated for their mean spirits (Saralyn). Others you think – I need to have her spirit of seeing the good and waiting & wanting this to work out while on the other hand understanding that if they don’t I must move on and do what’s right for me (Deborah & Josette). I’m glad Abraham did some soul searching and began to do the right thing (late) but good.

    Do you plan on a continuation/sequel to this book?

    Thank you for the opportunity to read the book before it “hit the streets”.
