    I finished this quickly, but am pretty ambivalent about it. I think the plot had lots of potential, but the author took the easy way out and avoided pretty much anything that would make for a good "family drama". Glad it was free on my nook - would not recommend!

    Sins of The Father by Angela BensonSins of the Father by Angela BensonAbraham Martin, a very successful businessman, has a lot of 'splaining to do as Ricky Ricardo use to say on the I Love Lucy show. At one point in time, his life was totally out of control. All of his decisions seemed to be for his selfish comfort. This is why there are so many secrets and so much emotional following two families in the novel. Really, I could not see a light at the end of the tunnel for Abraham Martin or any of [...]

    Abraham grew up without a father and was raised by his mother alone. It was clear that there were struggles and poverty. When he grows up, he sets out and achieves every promise he made to his mother for a better life for both of them, but forgets along the line that money just can't buy everything and power can even get in the way. After his mother passes she leaves a letter behind telling him that while she loves him so much, but she feels that she has failed him as a mother by not teaching hi [...]

    This was a Nook Free Friday selection; I'm glad I didn't pay for it. There is enough of a story that I kept reading, but the characters are one-dimensional; the dialogue is banal, and the resolution predictable.

    I know why this book was free. I could not finish it. Soap opera material.

    Soapy family melodrama that kept reminding me of a key story line in the Luke Cage television series. Set in Atlanta, it’s about a media mogul who had two out-of-wedlock children and decides after they’ve grown he needs to make thing right with them. We see the reaction of his wife, his legitimate child and the two illegitimate as well as spouses, boyfriends and others. Not a lot of depth, but fun read.

    Entrepreneurial genius and entertainment trendsetter, Abraham Martin has a wife, Saralyn, and a son, Isaac. He also has another son, Michael, and a daughter, Deborah, and now, after thirty years of acting like they didn't exist, he's reaching out. Deborah and Michael grew up without their father. Leah Thomas raised them. She struggled as a single mother and not once did she bad mouth Abraham, who didn't do anywhere near as much as he could have to supply their needs. Not hearing negative comment [...]

    This was a 3.5 read for me.In the drama-filled book, Sins of the Father, by Angela Benson, the reader will be engrossed in reading what happens, once Abraham Martin decides to “publically” acknowledge his children by a former girl friend 30 years after he walked out of their lives to marry Saralyn to help advance his business ambitions. This change-of-heart came about after finding a soul-awaking letter from his deceased mother urging him to do the right thing and form a relationship with da [...]

He abandoned Leah and ran to the forgiving arms of his wife, Saralyn, who is manipulative and will not let anyone upset her happiness which includes her promised child, Isaac.Deborah longs to be her “daddy’s little girl” but her brother, Michael, on the other hand wants revenge and he is determined to make his fat [...]

    She has done it again. Angela deals with hard issues, she doesn't back down from anything! In "Up Pops the Devil" her main character is a man just released from prison after serving 2 years for dealing drugs. In "Sins of the Father" we get to meet Abraham, his wife Saralyn and his son Isaac with his wife Rebecca (sound familiar?). Abraham is a VERY successful media mogul that has a secret or rather HAD a secret. Oh, yes, he has a second family that he has only just acknowledged. That's right, a [...]

    This was a wonderfully, inspiring book that I related to at least in part. It was about a father who had two families. A woman he was never married to and they had two children and then his wife and son. The one family he basically cut from his life because he was a super "climb the ladder" type guy and this family didn't help him do that. His second family did. The book takes place after both sets of children are raised. His mother dies and leaves him a letter chastising him for not ever introd [...]

    Pretty good book. Held my interest until the family infighting started. No big mystery here. Felt the main charcter was a bit of a coward for not standing up tohis wife about his illegtamite children. The wife was pver possessive of her son with the main charcter. The main charcter's younger really had a chip on his shoulder by being negelected by his father all of his life and until a medical emergency occured he was unwilling or unable to forgive the treatment he suffered at the hands of his f [...]

    I started this book and could not stop reading it. The characters are so well blended and the storyline is truly believable. Families are torn apart and put back together through the grace of God. Abraham and his selfish ways decided to make amends to what wrong he did 30 years before only to go through the struggle of pulling together a dysfunctional family. A must readeven though you believe in God, there are some things that will test your beliefs.

    Ever want to strangke one or more characters in a book? How about all of them in this train wreck of a diva driven soap ipera. Alluded by ithers as a rewrite of the biblical saga of Abraham, this book reads more liike a cat scratching, boundaries broken, anticipating a hurrivcane, can you belive she/he did THAT kind of story. Not great, passibly "fun" unless it echos your life. I did read it, but I'm neutral on it

    Pretty good book. explored the consequences of neglecting the children born from an affair. Author did a good job of exploring both sides from how the wife and son felt to the guilt of the mistress and anger of the son and daughter born from the affair. This book turned out to be better than I thought.

    Talk about a broken family. The Martins and Thomas' certainly need a session with Dr. Phil or Dr. Sherry in order to repair the damage of the past. Sins of the Father illustrates what can happen if you hold grudges, don't learn to forgive and set out for revenge. Are you really ready to suffer the consequences of such actions? Is the price really worth it?

    If you like the show Empire, you may think that this book is interesting. There are a lot of similarities. It was a quick read, and I liked the subtle similarity to the story of Abraham and Sarah in the Bible. Wasn't one of my favorite books I've ever read but it was decent. By the end of the book I wanted more or maybe I'm just ready for the next season of Empire hahahaha.

    The father in this book had an illegitimate son that he never let his family know about. When he did decide to let his family know about his son, the wife refused to accept the son or her husband's infidelities. A lesson to be learned about cheating and how it can destroy a family. I read this book in 2010.

    I really enjoyed this book. Although a bit dramatizede book clearly had undeniable truth about the power of forgiveness through love. I loved the voice of the author bringing the characters to life and enjoyed the subliminal connections of truths of the heart. I feel like I need to await another episode :)

    This book was great. I enjoyed it so much. I loved all of the characters and what they represented. It was hard for me to pick a favorite character, because I could sympathize with all of them. The plot was one that wasn't too far-fetched and I appreciated that. I recommend this book to others because it was great.

    Heather
    I enjoyed getting to know the people in this book and was invested in the story right up until the events beginning in chapter 55. As an RN I absolutely could not accept the ***SPOILER ALERT*** illness and it completely distracted me.

    Debra Odom
    Very good story about love and forgiveness. Michael's character was a big much. I wanted to jump into the book and smack him. He was the most selfish and vindictive character in this book besides his stepmom.

    Sandra Menefee
    Amazing. Family secrets, family lies. Do you really think your family secrets are hidden forever? This is a must read. Amazing. Jealously, abandonment, doubt and forgivenss. What a combination. A must read.

    Marilyn Tafro
    Interesting story of a man who had a wife & a son (Issaic) and also a mistress & 2 more children, Deborah & Michael. He doesn't try to meet them until they are in their 30's. I didn't find the writing to be too good.

    Jewett
    i wasn't too sure of this when I started it and I'm still on the fence. Parts of it I like, parts I didn't.

    Kristi
    To long for what the story was. It was an okay story but seemed boring in some spots.

    Lori
    Predictable and slow.

    Valerie
    Good book about family life. Excellent writing and story. I didn't want it to end.

    Lynn
    A mediocre writing style and mostly predictable plot combine for a two star result.
