About the Book
Mary should have been in the kitchen with Martha, but she sat at the feet of Jesus. When Naomi commanded her daughter in law to go back home, Ruth vowed to stay with her. She played a central role in God’s plan to bring Jesus into the world. Because these women broke the rules, God was able to do so much more with their lives. Unthinkable shows you what happens when you break out of the mold and join hands with the One whose dreams are bigger than you can think!

The Mahogany Books Indie/Penned author series is a specially curated event highlighting independent, self-published authors of African descent. The goal of the series is to give self-published authors a platform to share their insights, stories, and creativity while also providing the reading public access to works often overlooked by publishers and literary agents. The Indie/Penned author series is both a celebration of the drive and creativity of authors who won’t take no for an answer as well as a forum for community discussion, introspection, and action.
