Fascinating Story of an Unfaithful Pastor  Jul 20, 2008
Velva Holt, the author of "We Suffered In Silence", lived the story she wrote. Far from being a boring autobiography, the story pulled me in and I read the book in one sitting. It was sad to read how the pastor's wife and daughter suffered emotionally in knowing that he was sleeping with women in the church whom he was supposed to be counseling. The story also points out how leaders of the church seemed unwilling to believe that one of their pastors was being unfaithful, so they let it go on for many, many years.

Happily, through God's healing power, both the wife and daughter eventually found peace. In fact, Virginia Holt-Coombs, the daughter of the author, wrote a chapter with her insight on the topic. Virginia's husband, Bob Coombs, and Mable Dunbar, both professional counselors, each wrote a chapter providing helpful advice to readers who might be dealing with similar trauma in their own lives.

I highly recommend this book.
