However, she is stunned with what she perceives is a betrayal by ex her husband Philip. He has run up exorbitant debts gambling and needs to pay them off immediately. He begs Gabby to give him the funds. Her Yada Yada prayer partner Jodi Baxter, her friend retired cop Harry Bentley offer her solace but not much practical advice besides not helping her husband as does Lee the lawyer who loves her. Gabby turns to God for guidance though her first inclination is to let Philip be punished especially when his actions threaten the House of Hope.
The third Yada Yada House of Hope inspirational tale (see Where Do I Go? and Who Do I Talk to?) is an entreating story that Yada Yada fans will relish as Gabby has come so far. The cast is strong in particular the heroine who has difficult issues still to confront, but has the strength of being "Souledout" which enables her to lean on the Lord for help. Newcomers will enjoy this tale, but reading the first two entries of the House of Hope series will enhance the experience.
Through the many Christian friends she amasses, a legal aid attorney that is sweet on her and mainly the strength of God she has managed to get an apartment and her boys back. Her mother recently passed and left Gabby a large chunk of money which she decides to try and purchase the 6 flat apartment house she is living in. She wants it financed for low income mothers trying to have a safer existence for them and their offspring.
Complications arise everywhere and Gabby loses her mojo until she is once again brought in to the arms of Jesus to rest and listen to His plans. Quirky fun characters abound, while strong faithed people are there to hold Gabby up so she can meet her dreams with the Lord's.
This was suppose to complete this series but too many loose strings were left everywhere and now I am excited to read the next offering. Neta Jackson has a way to pull me in, have me feeling the spirit of God moving, while thoroughly enjoying a story.
Nicely done, Neta Jackson.
This story is a bit slower than the first two and lacking some of the fun that came from "bag lady" Lucy, who is infrequently seen in this book, and other lively characters. This is definitely not a stand-alone book and will likely only make most sense to readers of the second (and perhaps both first and second) installments. Despite these detractions, this story still offers wonderful insight into the struggles of trying to adjust to major changes in life and still honor one's Christianity.
