Books for the Heart & Soul

Cover of Finally by Rolanda T. Pyle


Awarded: Best Inspirational Poems, 2008 by Christian Storyteller

A strong black woman, a social worker and a devoted member of a loving family, but above all else, Rolanda Pyle is a woman of God. Her first collection of poetry, Finally, is an intensely personal rumination on the way her indomitable faith has guided her path in life. Pyle writes passionately about the challenges she has faced — her painful struggles with relationships, weight loss and sickness — and the divine light, which inspired her to overcome them. Her verse sings of survival, celebrating God's love and the power of perseverance.
