Marsha D. Jenkins-Sanders' spellbinding story of love and redemption delves behind the scenes of a passionate marriage tested by the temptations of sudden fame.
Katlyn has never forgotten what her husband said to her on the night they first met: "If given a chance, you'll fall in love with me." Katlyn was determined to settle for nothing but a perfect fairy tale of true love, and Justin Kincaid--an ambitious, aspiring recording artist--set out to give it to her. True to Justin's word, Katlyn fell in love. But now, two years into their marriage, cracks are beginning to show. With a number one song in the charts and beautiful, willing women all around, Justin is being thrown back to his single life. He knows he owes Katlyn big time--his name wouldn't be a household word if it weren't for his support--but gratitude isn't enough to keep him from straying. Now, it's becoming clear that the only thing keeping them together is a commitment Justin can no longer honor. And as Katlyn is forced to let go of her fairy tale for the reality of being in love with a man she's supposed to share with the world, she embarks on a life-altering emotional and spiritual journey in this intricate and thoroughly engaging novel.

"Katlyn Kincaid is used to women throwing panties at her husband but she does not count on someone challenging her authority in the most public way. The Other Side of Through is every woman's nightmare come true. This compelling novel pulled me through all sorts of emotions, and murder is high on the list. If you've ever been in these shoes you must read this book."
-- Tina Brooks McKinney, author of All That Drama, Lawd Mo' Drama, and Fool Stop Trippin'
"The Other Side of Through is an engaging and inspirational story of one woman's journey to find herself after becoming lost in the needs and expectations of others; especially her unappreciative and unfaithful husband. With the glamorous Hollywood music scene as its backdrop, this fictionalized tale based on real events will have you riveted to the last page."
-- Shelley Halima, author of Azucar Moreno, Los Morenos, and Blinding Mirror
