Applause for THE UNRAVELING OF REVEREND G: From the opening pages of THE UNRAVELING OF REVEREND G, RJ Thesman grips the readers in a poignant and humorous tale of a minister facing Alzheimer’s. Told in the first person, Reverend G—Gertrude, a name she hates—relates her path to forgetfulness while never forgetting the One who made us all. The tale will make the reader laugh at the outlandish things Reverend G does, cry over her increasing loss of memory and rejoice in how God still uses her despite her disability. Even when she must live in an assisted living facility, Reverend G hears from God and ministers, and even finds romance once again. .  ~~ Grace Awards 2012 Women’s Fiction Judges Team
