JUST BETWEEN YOU AND ME
Jones has created the perfect balance of humor and insight in this touching novel. The topics of mental illness and fear are handled with grace, and readers will come away with a sense of God's love and compassion for their lives. Maggie's first-person point of view
is intimate and will resonate with readers.
Now her father calls and says her flighty, drug-addicted sister has disappeared yet again, leaving her precocious 8-year-old daughter behind. Maggie returns to help and is caught in a sea of things she has been trying to run away from for many years. (THOMAS NELSON, Sep., 304 pp., $14.99)
