The Blood Done Signed My Name - M. Ann Ricks

Are the sins of the father and mother visited upon their sons and daughters? Honey Lamb, like many, is a descendant of an unfortunate legacy of molestation, addiction, murder and bad decisions. As long as she could remember, she believed the unhappiness she experienced was somehow bequeathed to her. Not realizing God places people in our lives for a purpose, she reluctantly embarks upon a journey that will open her heart to a divine inheritance. Will she accept the spiritual blood transfusion that will change her life forever or will she shun the invitation and allow her carnal familial legacy to continue to the next generation. Either way, she will never be the same! - Amazon


This was a hard read for me and took me a lot longer than normal to finish a book.  Although I understood what Author Ricks was attempting to do by building to what caused the marriage to fail between Honey and Mason, it just did not go over very well.  I got frustrated while reading because everything would come back to Honey’s relationship with Mason.  Honey would be talking to someone else or doing something else and here comes the thought or image of Mason again.  It got old after the first couple of times.  
I wish Author Ricks would have told us what happened to their marriage in the beginning of the story and how they worked on it instead of extending the story.  The book really could have been over way before it was, but I felt like Author Ricks just kept the story going.   
In the middle of the story, the book turned to Honey’s relationship with her mother which was actually a nice and welcomed relief from the Mason saga.   It did provide some insight to her relationship with Mason. I would have preferred to see a little more of that storyline than of the Mason storyline.  
Although it seemed like it took forever to get to the end, the book did have a happy ending and gave a new meaning to the words - second chance.
