Glory’s mother will stop at nothing to keep her daughter from worldly temptations…

Glory Bishop lives her life in pieces. At work and with her friends, she reads novels, speaks her mind, and enjoys slow dances and stolen kisses with her boyfriend, JT. But at home, Glory follows strict rules and second-guesses every step. Though she dreams of going to college and living like a normal teenage girl, her abusive mother has other ideas.

When JT leaves to join the navy, Glory is left alone and heartsick. The preacher’s son, Malcolm Porter, begins to shower her with lavish gifts, and her mother pushes Glory to accept his advances. Glory is torn between waiting for true love with JT or giving in to the overzealous Malcolm.

When a stranger attacks Glory on the street, Malcolm steps in to rescue her, and her interest in him deepens. But the closer she gets to him, the more controlling he becomes. Glory must eventually decide whether to rely on others or to be her own savior.



“Deborah King has written a compelling, thought-provoking novel that engages readers and made me wish the story would never end.” -Chicago Writer’s Association Windy City Reviews

“If you enjoy complex characters, you’ll love this book. From a zealous and abusive mother to a free-spirited best friend much older than Glory, the cast is as engrossing as Glory herself. Deborah King maintains complete control of the narrative, manipulating perception of the characters even as their actions go in other directions. In some ways, you may even find yourself sympathizing with the violent boyfriend.  Deborah King wields the pen in such a way as to grab you by the wrist and pull you along like you’re best friends. Glory Bishop is Chicago’s answer to Judy Blume!” —JORDAN EHMANN  – Indies today

“Glory Bishop is an enthralling novel, sad, yet hopeful, written beautifully and masterfully in a way only a true storyteller can accomplish. The characters are complex, and unravelling their motivations, desires, strengths, and weaknesses, will keep readers thinking about this novel long after the last page.” —-USA Today bestselling author Kelly Stone Gamble

Glory Bishop is timely and timeless. This book should be required reading for every woman who thinks she must be obedient to be loved. Glory is a protagonist who has a lot going against her, but Ms. King makes her strong, and it is a delight to see where that strength takes her.— Barbara Conrey USA Today Bestselling Author of Nowhere Near Goodbye

“From the powerful first scene of Glory Bishop to its emotional ending, I was all-in. Deborah L. King is a fresh and compelling voice in women’s fiction.”— Jennifer Klepper, USA Today bestselling author of Unbroken Threads

Coffee and Wander Book Reviews


My reading is all over the place…but bends mainly toward middle grade and younger books. Believe it or not, I only like happy endings and kid stories usually have happy endings. Not listed here are Encyclopedia Brown, Archie Comics, and Little House books… and of course the incredibly suspenseful The Monster at the End of This Book.

● The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis

○ The second to last book in the Chronicles of Narnia series, this is the story of a kid on an adventure and the birth of Narnia. It taught me the concepts of in-between places and infinite choices… and the consequences of deplorables. The most significant thing to me, though, was the curse. When I read it, it seemed like an innocuous little ditty in the story, but what I didn’t know was that by reading it, it planted itself in my spirit and affects my every decision now. I’ve read this book probably 12 times since I was 14, and I still love it.

● Star Trek The Return by William Shatner

○ Just WOW. This is the story that bridges gaps and connects so many storylines… plots written decades apart by different authors before some concepts were even developed. Here’s a teaser – Spok, Kirk, and Picard are all Borg!!

● Star Trek Federation by Judith Reeves-Stevens

○ This one tests the Federation principles. When two Enterprises meet in a time rift, Kirk wonders if the Federation as he knows it has survived for a hundred years,

and Picard wonders if the stories of Kirk’s clever lawlessness and dedication are true. It explores the concepts of trust and enduring legacies.

● Wild Seed by Octavia Butler

○ Anyanwu is an immortal shape shifter, and Doro is a spirit-consuming, body-shifting life force. Anyanwu just wants to be left alone, but Doro wants to breed her with other exceptional beings in his quest to create a superior gifted race… then he wants to eat her.

● The Red Tent by Anita Diamant

○ Jacob had twelve sons and one daughter. This is the story of his daughter and the women who raised her. It’s not a mild story, and it touches on some biblical dogma that will likely upset some people, but overall, it’s a really good story.
