Sin No More is Kimberla Lawson Roby's tenth novel. We follow the Reverend Curtis Black trying desperately to save his marriage and his congregation. His personal life to date has been shaky at best.

With the Reverend's mistress threatening to make public the fact that she has had a baby by him, his wife is understandably upset. And his son is not his but rather the son of a man with whom his wife Charlotte had a brief fling. That man has appeared, demanding his rights as a father and threatening to file for full custody. To make matters worse, the Reverend's mistress has started stalking both Curtis and Charlotte, and his interim pastor is demanding that Curtis turn the church over to him. Yes, Curtis brought all this on himself, but he swears he has turned over a new leaf and dearly loves his wife.

With a plot that takes more turns than a meandering stream, Sin No More moves from one catastrophe to the next - with possibly a few too many catastrophes to swallow. And a little too much understanding conversation to ring true to life. Nevertheless, Sin No More does hold the reader's attention to the extent that the novel must be finished to see how it all turns out.
