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.
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.

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.
