Never met a Neta Jackson book I didn't like and this one is no exception. She has such a gift. Her characters are so believable and I have to admit that I am Jody Baxter in real life. I truly recommend that you start with the Yada Yada series and read them all. But be prepared! You will do nothing else but read once you start. You can't put them down. Then go to the House of Hope series. Which leads us to Stand by Me, the first in the Souled out Sisters series.
Avis Douglas, principal of an elementary school and leader of the Yada Yada prayer group is reaching a critical point in her life. Her and her husband Peter are at a crossroads and need to make critical decisions in their lives. But Avis daughter and grandson are missing and then through in the mix the group of college kids who move into their building for the summer.
It moves me because the character is a leader and well thought of person but makes mistakes and has doubts just like we do. God doesn't let her down though and sees her through. You will love this book.....five stars!
