Title: Glory…The Hair
Author: Sandra Hamer
Glory…The Hair centers around the main characters Jennifer Williams and Troy Smith. Jennifers hairdresser, Sheila Kennedy, clips a bit too much of her hair. Jennifer ends up taking Sheila to court over hair. In the end, you learn about their spirituality, their men, their past and their future. It deals with men and how they love hair. It deals with women and their jealousies. It deals with hairdressers who systematically try and destroy a womans glory. This affects a womans self-esteem. It affects her peace. It affects her on the dating scene. It affects her job opportunities. But everyone agrees that God is bigger than any problem.
This is a very engaging read that causes the reader to think about what struggles a woman goes through, especially when she loses her glory. In the case of this story, this is represented through hair. Lots of Christian messages throughout the story, and this was definitely different from any other book I have read. If you’re looking for something uplifting and thoughtful, this is the book.
