Leceila Turnage. A Gift to the Eye and More. West Babylon, NY: Urban Books, 2008.

Turning forty without a husband and children has Eva Liles down.  Has she set her sights too high?  Is she wrong to want a man who’s tall, handsome, college-educated, financially secure, romantic, and a churchgoer?  The older ladies at Community Baptist are only too glad to call her out for being picky, but how will they react when they find out that she’s seeing a man who’s in prison?  Eva tries to keep her distance from Xavier, but as she comes to know him and his family, she realizes that she has to make a choice: reject Xavier because he doesn’t measure up to her checklist or take a chance on what she feels in her heart.
