The novel, Mariah Jennings – The Battle, is forty years in the life of a woman who was born on hell’s hit list. Her story is played out in a battle between God and Satan. The battlegrounds are her personal life, her workplace – a Detroit consulting firm forced into corruption, and her overly zealous church. Satan’s weapons in Mariah’s life are abuse, rejection, jealousy, betrayal, harassment, false accusation, and isolation.
The riveting cliff hanger novel is based on the premise that everyone is born with a purpose and a spiritual enemy to keep us from achieving that purpose. The forces of good and evil are revealed in a way that enables readers to readily recognize these forces in their own lives.
Laced with humor, this mesmerizing tale grabs you from the beginning. Mariah’s story is gripping – even shocking as she delves into areas where few are brave enough to tread.
The novel, though highly entertaining, is also quite educational. There are lessons for everyone who has incurred a moral dilemma at work or at church.

THE AUTHOR, REBECCA DUNBAR
Rebecca Dunbar and her over-active imagination grew up Baptist in a small farming community in Louisiana with her parents and seven siblings. She received her bachelor's degree in Accounting from Southern University in Baton Rouge, LA and her MBA in Finance from the University of Wisconsin @ Madison. Rebecca has worked in financial management in corporate America for more than twenty-five years.
In 1997, she moved Colorado, having lived in Michigan and Virginia. Though not totally shucking her Baptist roots, she began attending a non-denominational church, "which initially scared the living daylights out of me," she readily admits. She currently describes herself as Bapti-costal.
When asked how she came about writing her novel "Mariah Jennings – The Battle: Too holy for the corporation; not holy enough for the church," Rebecca says:
"One day in corporate America, I sassed my boss (not a recommendation folks!) and got suspended from work—without pay for 10 days. The 'what if's' kicked in. I decided to write a novel, where I could safely share my 'what if's.'
