The Ring Does Not Fit
"If you ever want to be in a relationship, you need to read this book! It's worth your time to sit down and take in all that this story offers because this book contains hidden wisdom about taking nothing for granted, fighting for what you want and accepting God's best!" -Excerpt from the Foreword written by News Producer Travis Rodgers
Alena is stuck in a mundane marriage and longing for something different. New clothes. Bigger bling. Flashy cars. Miraculously and inexplicably, it all happens in a flash and she is finally married to the man of her dreams, but something still seems to be missing. In all her excitement, the one thing she's looking for is the one thing she can't seem to keep.
"I couldn't put this book down! It really stresses the importance of appreciating what you have. Sunshine Rodgers is a great author; the story is truly amazing, and I was captivated with each page. I gained great insight into reading this book and it is such an inspiring read, especially for those who doubt God's presence."

"The grass is rarely greener on the other side. In "The Ring Does Not Fit" Sunshine Rogers takes readers on a fascinating and winding journey of hard lessons and profound revelation. She shows us that what we really need to make our lives complete is often to be found in what we already have. We blind ourselves to the love that surrounds us and our human nature neglects and takes this for granted, as we contemplate how "material objects" could somehow enrich our existence. We (as humans) are born to want more, born to yearn for greater success, but it is the actual nature and form of what this success is that Sunshine explores with such insight and imagination."
- Andy Carpenter, Voices of Freedom
"I just finished reading “The Ring Does Not Fit” by Sunshine Rodgers. I absolutely loved this novel!! I enjoyed traveling through the life of Alena. The many changes that occur in her life and how she copes with the challenges on her path to find her faith, are incredible. I could actually see myself in some of the pages of this novel. I recommend taking the time to sit back and take in every word, and put yourself in Alena’s life. The words will surround you and encourage growth in your own faith."

"Your work was found to be an engaging and thought-provoking narrative. The vivid and colorful prose coupled with the relatable themes will captivate readers drawing them into the story and leaving them anxiously awaiting the characters fate. Readers will identify with Alena as many of us have wished for a different life as we felt something was missing." - Austin MaCauley Publishers

"I finished "The Ring Does Not Fit"....I promise that is the best book i have ever come across...Sunshine also walks the walk...I am amazed how awesome Sunshine is...I am lost for words...Please read this book...It will change your life...and please know...I take notes!" - Joel B.
"I would recommend this book to any age, but especially any women who feel stuck in a life that she didn't sign up for. When all of us feel, "is this it?" This is a book that makes you realize that your life isn't that bad, it could be worse and just maybe you have many blessings in your life you never realized you had. This book teaches through a great story of love and how God puts people in our lives for our blessings. I loved this book and couldn't stop reading it, I started and didn't put down until the last page, it has many twists and is unpredictable...... I would love to see this as a Hallmark movie, it would be so enjoyable." - Deb's Book Reviews
"The Ring Does Not Fit " by Sunshine Rodgers is a book that truly is worth the short time it takes to read it. I recommend this book to everyone that is married, or engaged or wants to be married. It is a story to show that we need to appreciate the things we have and not to take them for granted because they might disappear before we know it. I love the book and the message that it gives. That message is that we need Jesus before things can be right. I really like the different marriages portrayed in this book." - Debbie C.
"This story reminded me of “It’s a Wonderful Life,” with a twist. A very special guest in the story takes Alena on a journey through several “marriages,” that she thought would be better. The author does a great job of showing Alena what her life may be like and as the journey continues she starts to realize how much she misses her husband." - Deana D.
"What an interesting story! This book kind of reminds me a little bit of the movies 13 Going on 30, and Isn't it Romantic?, with a Christian fiction twist and a story that is all it's own! This story is a quick read that kept me flipping pages super fast because I had to know what would happen next!" - Caitlyn S.
"I loved the message of this book! I thought it was one that needs to be out there, since it can be easy to get caught up in the romance and forget that the true love story is when we sacrifice and work through things, making a marriage out of what life throws at you. This is an excellent story to pick up!" - Amanda N.
"This book provides an excellent look at what can happen without Jesus in a marriage. But it also provides a look at the blessings that can come when we invite Jesus into our marriages as well as our lives. This work of fiction is definitely worth reading." - Patti P.
"I enjoyed the book and definitely agree with the premise upon which it’s written. Sometimes all a marriage needs to succeed and for both parties to be fulfilled is Christ at the center. This novel was entertaining and had a very straightforward message." - Andrea C.
"This is an eye-opening cautionary tale that is pertinent to most people. The subject is marriage, and it is applicable to men and women before or after they are married. Many different aspects of marriage are brought up, and more importantly, the question of what kind of person should one be, and what kind of spouse should one look for, going into marriage. This book is not long, and it is easy to read. It is also a book to make one think, so I recommend it." - Kathy J.
"I was pleasantly surprised that the book really was good. The concept was fun and unique. Alena had lots of wants and dreams for her life, but when given a glimpse of what might have been she found out that it wasn’t quite what she had imagined. Each “husband” and life was vastly different from her own and I found myself caught up in each story to see what Alena’s life could have been if she had made different choices. The story was enjoyable and was one that has left me thinking since I read it. I look forward to reading more of Rodgers' works." - Donna C.
"Similar to Scrooge, Sunshine Rodgers takes the main character on a journey to understand the power of prayer and faith. Without it, a marriage is not sustainable - love is not enough. I found this to be a great read and I suggest it to my married and single friends." - Poetess April J, host of Your Oral Diktion Academy on Black Love Poetry Series Network
