BLOG TOUR: Sins Of The Father


Meet Angela Benson, author of Sins of the Father

Tell us about Sins of the Father.

I really like how the back cover describes the book:

Sins of the Father is a powerful story of a house bitterly divided—a rich, multilayered family saga of betrayal and redemption, rage and compassion, faith, forgiveness, and ultimately, of love. Successful media mogul Abraham Martin has great wealth, an elegant wife, Saralyn, and a rebellious son, Isaac. He also has a secret: a second family that no one knows about. Now, after thirty years—driven by the urging of his long dormant conscience—Abraham is determined to do the right thing by finally bringing his illegitimate children into the light…and into the family fold.

How did you come up with ideas for this book?

The idea for Sins of the Father came from the biblical story of Abraham, Sarah, Hagar, Sarah's son's Isaac and Hagar's son Ishmael. I wondered how Ishmael felt and what would have happened if Abraham had later claimed him as his son.

Who are your main character(s)?

Like most of my books, Sins of the Father has an ensemble cast. The major players are Abraham Martin, his wife Saralyn and their son Isaac; and Leah Thomas and the two children she had with Abraham, Michael and Deborah. Then there's Isaac's wife, Rebecca, and Michael's wife, Josette.

Did you have a favorite character(s)? Who and why?

I liked them all, but Saralyn has a special place in my heart. She's not the nicest person but I really understood why she behaved the way she did so I couldn't hate her. Sometimes it seems easier to make a problem go away rather than to deal with it. She just wanted her problem to go away.

Did you have to do quite a bit of research for this novel?

Not a lot, but I did have to research a few health issues because I used them in the book.

What do you hope readers will learn/discover from reading Sins of the Father?

I want absentee fathers to realize how much their children need them, regardless of the children's ages. I want the children of absentee fathers to forgive them. And if there's a chance for reconciliation, I want them to explore it and not let past hurts keep them from knowing a parent. Above all, I want these children to realize that God will be a father even if their biological father is not present. I know this to be true because it was true for me.

Okay, a not-so-fun question. How important are reviews to you as a writer?

I like good ones and bad ones make me feel down for a minute or two. I've gotten philosophical about it though. If everybody loves my book, it means that I didn't have good distribution. I don't expect everybody who reads my work to enjoy it. I don't think that's realistic.

About the Book

Successful media mogul Abraham Martin has great wealth, an elegant wife, Saralyn, and a rebellious son, Isaac. He also has a secret: a second family that no one knows about. Now, after thirty years—driven by the urging of his long dormant conscience—Abraham is determined to do the right thing by finally bringing his illegitimate children into the light…and into the family fold.

But beautiful, manipulative Saralyn will never accept the proof of her husband’s indiscretions. Isaac the heir, shaken by his father’s revelations, will fight mercilessly when his world is threatened, and may lose everything that matters as a result. And while Abraham’s forgotten daughter Deborah is open to the undreamed-of possibilities suddenly awaiting her, son Michael cannot forgive the man who cruelly abandoned them to near poverty. And he’s driven by only one desire: revenge!

Ms. Angela,

Thanks so much for stopping by SORMAG on your tour.

I started the book last night and had to put it down because I needed to sleep. LOL

I'm enjoying it and feeling the emotions of the kids. I had a some timey father so I can understand.
