Unresolved Issues, by Wanda B. Campbell, was a great read. The author did a great job in developing the plot and the characters of the storyline and made them relatable to real life situations that Christians or anyone, for that matter, face on a regular basis.

Dr. Derrick Garrison, has always been an over achiever—every since he was abandoned by his father. Derrick, a successful, dentist has carried his daddy-issue-baggage well into adulthood and into his marriage.

Staceyln Garrison loved her husband, but she realizes that he has some unresolved issues; however, she thinks they have to do with her. Stacelyn, Staci for short, ignores the warning of her mother and the many warnings from God, that although Derrick was the man He had chosen for her, he was not ready to marry. Against God’s wishes, the two fall in love and marry, only to find their problems start immediately.

While Staci is waiting for Derrick to grow up, she decides she shouldn’t have to suffer at the whim of her husband’s hurtful ways, and befriends Malcolm. Malcolm has intentions for Staci, except she is to blind to see it. She ignores God’s whispers in her ear and she soon finds that ignoring God’s word has deadly consequences.

Unresolved Issues never gets boring and I found myself, throwing myself into the story as I talked to many of the characters. It was ironic that I know, and we all know, someone in this book that can relate to the characters in this book. Great read Wanda!
