FROM THE PUBLISHER

Albertina Merci, a talented R&B singer, toured with Ray Charles, James Brown, and Wilson Pickett, until the fateful night her voice gave out in front of a sold-out crowd. Encouraged by her fans, she offered a little speech in praise of Jesus instead of a song. Her spontaneous words became the seed of "Sanctified Blues," a song that soon captured the hearts of millions and gave Albertina the financial security to follow her true calling, sharing the Gospel with those in need of spiritual comfort.

Sanctified Blues is the story of Albertina's encounter with Maggie Clay, the biracial beauty who is TV's reigning sitcom diva. A sudden mystery surrounding Maggie has the entire country wondering: Is Maggie having a nervous breakdown, and if so, why? What caused it? And who can save the star from self-destruction?

Sanctified Blues introduces a heroine in the vein of Jessica Fletcher (of Murder, She Wrote) and Precious Ramotswe, head of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. Her quiet but determined mission to solve spiritual mysteries and dilemmas will endear Albertina to both secular and Christian readers.
