This is the first book in the Yada Yada House of Hope series. Fans will notice some differences in this new series compared with Yada Yada Prayer. However, they will also notice some familiar characters.
Gabby is a great mother, but she is a depressed person. Her husband is controlling. She finds meaning to her life when she begins working at a shelter for the homeless. He gives her ultimatums to quit her job, give up her friends, and get over the God thing or he would divorce her and take their children away from her.
Neta Jackson does an excellent job breathing life into her characters. I did not like Gabby at first, but as the book progressed and her husband’s true character became known, I felt sorry for her. The ending of this book is abrupt. It is a cliffhanger, and I hope it will be resolved in the next installment. The moral of this story is that God is always there for us if we will turn to him and seek His presence. It is unfortunate that the next book in this series is not due out for almost a year. How can we wait that long to discover what happens to Gabby?
