After three years of marriage, Denise Hightower discovers that her husband, Pastor Bryce Hightower, has a secret addiction that not only jeopardizes his marriage, but impairs his ability to effectively preach the gospel.
Yielding to pressure from her mother and her husband, Denise agrees to keep his addiction a secret, although her self-esteem plummets. Her life as the perfect First Lady is falling apart at the seams. Denise suffers in silence until she is confronted with the addiction from a trusted member of the church.
Self-centered and determined to uphold his pastoral image, Bryce is oblivious to his wife's emotional state. He's convinced that he can overcome his "little problem" on his own, so he rejects the spiritual help God sends him. But when his secret is discovered, will he be able to come clean with himself, God, and his congregation before he loses it all?

It's the oldest trick in the book. The Enemy slithers his way into the mix, tempting people to question God and ask the "what if" questions by planting seeds of doubt and confusion. Denise has always been a confident woman, quite satisfied with her curves. With the burden of carrying her husband's dark secret, her world begins to unravel.
Have you ever lost your self-esteem trying to please a man? Do you know a friend or relative who is in this same boat? We hope you will purchase Illusions to learn more about Denise' story. Leave your comments below and let us know your thoughts.
