The first book in the Jacksons’ Windy City Neighbors series introduces some new characters and revisits a couple of familiar faces from Neta’s Yada Yada series. The plot is fresh and relevant, and the spiritual aspects of the novel are seamlessly integrated, yet at the forefront of the story. There’s an excellent focus on themes of prayer and friendship among many others.
