About the Author
In this autobiography, Evangelist Darlene King relives her life giving an intimate perspective of her
mistakes and life lessons as she lays everything on the line. Travel on a journey in her shoes as she
recalls her struggles of being infected with HIV by her husband--a church pastor--and still constantly
having to fight for her marriage through her husbandís on-going adultery. She learns the hard way that
if HIV doesnít stop him from cheating, nothing will.
Darlene suffered from verbal abuse by her cheating pastor husband who aimed to break her spirit with
insults such as, ďI married beneath me,Ē to dealing with the pain of lies and deceit that come with drug
addiction. This is an eye opening story of one womanís triumph over divorce, depression, disease, and
distress. Darlene invites you to join in her emotional roller coaster that will make you laugh, cry, feel
happy, sad, joyful, loving and inspired. This book is full of stories that will leave you saying, ďI didnít
know that,Ē and ďNO, he didnít do that!Ē This book is definitely an eye opener for women who don't believe
the worst can happen with a man cloaked in holy clothing.
