Purple Church tells the story of Brother Jimmy Russell, a vulnerable and lonely Baptist minister who has everything going for him until his life falls apart after leukemia claims the life of his devoted bride. Brother Jimmy is then tempted by the young and beautiful Ashley White, who was abused by her father as a child and then raped by her fiance's father when she was in college. Ashley's tragic past leaves her empty and starved for attention, a perfect combination that leads her to skid row on a lofted stage in a popular Memphis strip club. The tale is one of redemption and spiritual consequence for both the handsome preacher and the lovely coed, whose salvation is Brother Jimmy's only reason for living.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Starner Jones' impressive first novel, "Purple Church," is a sharply written narrative of sin and redemption that carries the reader quickly and surely through a fast-paced plot with many unexpected turns and reversals. The surprise ending, which involves the antagonist and protagonist, who have been changed forever in the course of the action, reminds one of O. Henry."--George Core, editor, "Sewanee Review"
