Format: Paperback
This novel is an easy-to-read story about Gabby, whose husband locks her out of her home and takes away her sons. She is left with her frail mother and her dog and has nowhere to go but the homeless shelter where she has been working. There, the women around her encourage and support her, especially her friends from the Yada Yada prayer group. Gabby finds strength through their prayers and her growing faith in God.

This book is written in a fun, entertaining way despite the difficult circumstances. It is a good reminder of the power of God and the importance of prayer and trust in Him.

fine contemporary character study Sept. 27 2009
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In Chicago, Gabby Fairbanks knew her husband Philip was upset, but did not realize how much so until he kicked her to the street by changing the locks on their penthouse, ripped up her credit and debit cards, canceled her cell and vanished with their sons PJ and Paul. She is homeless along with her elderly mom and their canine Dandy. Gabby can handle a lot and is not overly concerned about where they will live as she can stay at the Manna House women's shelter where she also works, but she is angry and despondent feeling betrayed especially concerning her kids.

Filled with grief to her bone marrow, Gabby tries to recover her sense of self worth as she now lives with her "clients". The Yada Yada Prayer Group and the residents try their best to encourage Gabby to move on, but also go after Philip as she has rights too especially since her children need her. Still she has no one, not God, her lawyer, her two sisters or her aunt, to talk to as the big hurt is deep inside her soul and will soon worm hole even deeper.

The second Yada Yada House of Hope tale continues the life crises facing Gabby as she has temporarily answered her previous question WHERE DO I GO? Now she mentally feels like a tsunami has passed through her brain as she wonders WHO DO I TALK TO? Readers will fully relish her tale of anguish and rage even at God as more personal catastrophes assault the beleaguered Gabby.

The BEST!! Oct. 7 2009
By JanCath - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved the character development in here and am so glad to have my favorite Yada sister take a more prominent role. This had humor and lessons in humility and of grace and enough intrigue to get me to buy the next book! I think it's my favorite book of all the Yada Yada Series! It is the only book that I reread the ending twice (last 50 pages) because it was so good and I didn't want it to be over - haven't done that since I was a teenager! Highly recommend.

what do I talk to? Oct. 21 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved this book, I have enjoyed everyone of Neta Jackson's books, in the Yada Yada series, I have read both of the House of Hope books, and look forward to more.

Neta Jackson gives us stories we can all relate to. You go into each heart of the people involved. Looking into eyes of the bag lady that before you would try not to notice, those are the things that touch my heart. The love and hurt everyone goes through at some point in our lives. I have learned no one escapes some kind of trial, just or unjust. We all have issues.

Thank you Neta Jackson for touching my heart with your stories, and love to pass them on and give them for gifts to friends who would not have otherwise read one of your stories.

You are bright light in my world.

God Bless You.

Somehow, not as compelling as "Where Do I Go?" April 14 2011
By C. Donovan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Neta Jackson's "Who Do I Talk To" is the second book in her four-part Yada Yada House of Hope series. In book #1 ("Where Do I Go?"), we meet dutiful housewife, Gabrielle Fairbanks, who recently moved to Chicago with her wealthy husband to support his business career. Unfortunately, Philip shows himself to be self-centered and emotionally-abusive. After Gabby takes a position serving as Recreation Director at the local women's shelter and finds herself as the primary caretaker of her elderly mother, Philip decides to take matters into his own hands. He tosses her belongings out, changes the locks on their doors, and tells their two sons that "Mom can't take care of you anymore."

The story picks up in book #2, "Who Do I Talk To," where Gabby learns to rely on her new Manna House friends and co-workers, as well as prayer and Bible study, for the strength to get through the difficult times she faces. The story is a nice reminder that even when things seem hopeless and desperate in life, one can take heart that there is a bigger plan at work.

However, I've been trying to put my finger on why, exactly, I found #1 "Where Do I Go?" to be a much more compelling read than #2 "Who Do I Talk To?" Perhaps because in #1, I wanted to read to find out what kind of vile thing Philip would be up to next? Or maybe because in book #2, Gabby seemed like the self-centered one? She was so busy bouncing from one "Hey, this just might be crazy enough to work!" plan to the next, that she ended up putting her own wants ahead of her mother's healthcare. This, for me, resulted in a disappointing ending.
