Glory Unbound (book) by Deborah L King. Book coverIN THIS SECOND BOOK of the series, Glory Bishop has finally broken free of her mother's oppressive grasp and is offered a new life by a seemingly altruistic Chicago socialite, but there may be more than good intentions at play. Against the advice of trusted friends and family, Glory chooses the protection of Malcom Porter, her adoring, much older, bad-boy-turned-minister fiancé.

Thrust into a gilded world of wealth, society and privilege, Glory struggles to overcome the guilt of loving her new life. The whirlwind of 1980s designer clothing, penthouse views, and first-class travel is a far cry from her former existence.

With this new reality, comes unexpected complications and temptations. As she struggles to remain true to herself and her fiancé, Glory wonders if she will ever truly feel at home in this new world. Follow Glory Bishop in her continuing search for freedom and independence, as she once again strives to be her own savior.

Author's Notes

This is not an autobiography.
I have to say that a lot. Even though I include the names of people I know and some characters are based on real people, everything is fiction. Ok... maybe the kitchen scenes are close to what actually happened in my life... but I think women-in-the-kitchen is a common scene in many families.

Glory Unbound is the longest book I've ever written, but I hear it's a quick read.
