Miss Brenda and the Loveladies

This is the heartwarming tale of how a crazy rich white woman took in a group of rag tag hardened criminal women on parole and helped change their lives, in the process changing hers. After narrowly avoiding going to prison herself, Miss Brenda decided that she should do something for the women in prison and help them get back on their feet. She opened her mansion to them, and after a rocky start she was able to convince the felons that all she wanted to do was help them. A few women failed to live up to her expectations and were thrown back into prison, but nearly all of them enjoyed being Loveladies and turned their life around with help from Miss Brenda. This story is mostly told through Brenda's perspective but several chapters contain accounts from the women she took in. It's amazing that one small act has since grown into the largest faith based rehabilitation program for female felons and addicts in the country. An uplifting story that will make you want to get off your butt and go make a difference in the world.

For fans of Christian memoirs, addictions abuse recovery, and feel good stories.

I received this book for free from Waterbrook Press in return for my honest, unbiased opinion.
