Kurzbeschreibung

The Master's Plan is a realistic but warm and inspirational story of a woman’s struggle to find her purpose in life. The story is written with a touch of humor and a solid backdrop of both public service and church 'politics'! Snappy dialogue, interesting yet realistic plot twists, and strong likable characters who have an opinion about everything make this a fun to read and thought-provoking novel.

Selena Beatrice Jones, aka ‘SB’ to her friends, is married to Pastor Woodruff T. Jones, pastor of Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church, Smoothville, Georgia and still sometimes struggles with her status as the good Pastor’s second wife and the daily challenges it brings…with his family and his church of 25 years.

But after recently celebrating her 50th birthday, Selena thinks she's got it 'going on' and is excited about God's plans to use her to move Mt. Sinai into the 21st century via The Master's Plan. In her excitement to fulfill her purpose, Selena doesn't realize that when Commissioner Reginald Thompson II, aspiring political candidate, agrees to buy into her Master’s Plan, he does so because he has his own 'master plan'. One designed to get him into the State Legislature!

Selena is on a mission to fulfill her God given purpose on earth, confident that her steps are ordered by the Lord! Reginald is just as confident that his master plan will get him into office and that Selena B. Jones is the lady who can help get him there.

While the Commissioner’s staff struggle to convince him of the importance of adhering to the often painful and seemingly unnecessary bureaucratic details associated with federal funding of faith based programs, Selena attempts to garner the critically needed backing of church family, community and friends for the Plan. Suddenly her husband disappears!

The Plan takes on a life of its own and without the good Pastor’s approval. Selena's hands are full as she struggles to understand Woody's sudden and highly suspect disappearance while defending both his reputation and position as Pastor of Mt. Sinai to a disgruntled and sometimes hostile committee of church elders.

The Commissioner’s flagrant reliance on his charm, good looks and ‘massage the truth’ tactics to accomplish his mission causes his chief strategist, Shawn Mallory, to challenge the integrity of the plan. Deciding that his boss has finally crossed the line, Mallory jumps ship just as the master plan project is launched.

Unusual and atypical relationships form between government and church officials; old and new friends; and past and present family making this a ‘must read’ for everyone struggling to find purpose!

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Stephany's life changed dramatically in the fall of 2008. The professional contract and business writer was unable to find the senior manager job she expected to easily find after her relocation to Atlanta, Georgia. The move was for family reasons and a little sooner than expected but was a part of her personal life plan. Refusing to succumb to the heavy disappointment of not advancing her career in a city with such promise, Stephany struggled to understand purpose behind sudden and unexpected life changes. When her oldest son asked, 'why don't you just write a book? Do what you love to do?', after a few weeks of thought, she decided to give it a shot. She loves to write and realized that one of the reasons she succeeded as a proposal writer was because of her ability to 'create programs and program designs' ---so effectively that they were loved by her business clients and convincingly presented to and funded by grant sources! From inception to publication, Stephany worked for four years on her first novel, The Master's Plan, A Novel About Purpose. When thinking about how much she continually enjoys reading her debut novel, she writes, "I still laugh at all my favorite chapters and have yet to decide who is my favorite or least liked character. It's amazing! I was able to spin a tail around two frameworks that have had a major influence on my life: church and government politics. In writing The Master Plan, I was reminded of what a blessed life I have had and that despite what appeared to be very dismal circumstances, I was able to use my creativity and love of writing in a different way. Truly, I can see and believe, it was all part of a master plan." Stephany Tullis graduated from Russell Sage College with a Masters in Public Service Administration. She is the recipient of several leadership and career related rewards. She continues to consult for not for profits and lives in Georgia with her family. Her second novel 48 Hours Til Christmas is scheduled for release November 2014.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Exceptionally Well Done! A Must Read! 15. Juli 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The Master's Plan is a fast paced easy to read page turner! Selena Beatrice Jones aka 'SB' to her friends, 2nd wife of Pastor Woodruff T. Jones is convinced she's been called to move her husband's traditional Baptist church into the 21st century. Out to save her floundering marriage and tired of her daughter-in-law's jealousy and animosity, SB partners with a local politician who also has a master plan. Commissioner Reginald Thompson III leaves no stone unturned as he recruits a NYC operative to guide his singular focused search for power via his master plan.

The author's well developed characters and convincing dialogue thrust you as reader into the lives of a host of likable people and their day to day challenges; each following and several actively creating their own personal paths to purpose. Following the characters over their often intersecting and many times divergent paths made me feel as though I was 'walking a maze' never knowing where the next path would take me.
The novel is set in fictional Smoothville, Georgia where residents are just as quick to give you a hearty, 'hey y'all' as to curse you out--all in the name of their God!

I enjoyed this novel because it explores sensitive relationship issues including trust, marital fidelity, race, spiritual beliefs, family and friendships. I am impressed with Ms. Tullis' creative use of humor and satire to refine and shape her characters and tell their story. I commend the author on her debut novel and look forward to reading her next.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What is and what should not be 15. April 2014
Von M Sockel
Format:Kindle Edition
This beautifully told christian tale has it all; hope, subterfuge and redemption.

Selena is looking forward to moving, with her ever loving Pastor husband, to Mt Sinai to continue to spread the good word.
However, the nefarious Commissioner Reginald has his own plan to use Selena to catapult him into political office.
What lifts this amazing story so high above its contemporaries, is the authors understanding of characterization; Selena and Reginald really represent our own internal voices - one seeks to strive and do good, whilst the other seeks to indulge in the excess of base debauchery.

This is really a story of temptation, and through the two opposing characters we understand the allusion to the Temptation of Christ... and through Him, we better understand ourselves and strive towards the True Path.

Fans of Sally Stuart will love this, and new readers to the genre will fall in love with the message.
Recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A delightful read 16. Juli 2014
Von Big Bunny
Format:Kindle Edition
In "The Master's Plan", Ms. Tullis takes the reader through an enjoyable, and sometimes hilarious, romp through the local and church politics of Smoothville, Georgia. It is the story of Selena Jones, 2nd wife of revered Pastor Woody Jones. Wanting to aid her husband, Selena (SB to her close friends) naively has put together a plan - a master plan - to help him spread the good word. Throw in to the mix, Commissioner Reginald, who has plans of his own, his advisor Shawn, who is becoming disillusioned, Woody's daughter by his first wife who is hell-bent to see Selena gone, and a host of other marvelously drawn deacons and church-goers, the result is an outstanding read! Ms. Tullis keeps the reader in suspense throughout, wondering just what Selena's plan actually is and what in the heck is going on with Woody?

Anyone who enjoys vivid characterizations and southern literature will be delighted by Ms. Tullis' work. I highly recommend it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting Book! 14. Juli 2014
Von Anon Anon
Format:Kindle Edition
The author Stephany Tullis has done a great job of fleshing out her characters. I found myself caring about them and the outcomes of their decisions. They felt like real people with real problems, which made it all the more compelling for me.

One of my favorite quotes from the novel, “Janice’s body, with ample due diligence from its owner, finally relaxed. The deep breathing, meditation, and double dose of Xanax paid off. She drifted to sleep…felt like she had been out of it for an hour or so and was seriously fighting the call back to reality.”

5.0 von 5 Sternen Exceptional! 11. Juli 2014
Von Jim
Format:Kindle Edition
I am very impressed with this author. Her work in this book is exceptional. The characters are complex and real, so that you feel as if you know them and can relate to them. The book takes on some really difficult and important philosophical issues that are integral to and enhance rather that distract from the very enjoyable plot. The story is very engaging with plenty of interesting twists and turns to hold your attention. I highly recommend this book and hope to read more from Stephany Tullis.
