Jones can distill the heart of a woman better than most authors. This novel is a wonderful treat that women of every stage and circumstance of life can treasure. There’s no judgment here — just the love of God and the love of true friends.

Scarlett Jo Newberry is a pastor’s wife in the South, and she isn’t afraid to pray for others or attempt to get in their business if she thinks they need her. Grace Shepherd just moved into the neighborhood, and although she has some secrets, Scarlett Jo is there to help when things fall apart. And when Zach and Caroline Craig’s marriage implodes, the connection continues in unlikely ways. (TYNDALE, Mar., 380 pp., $13.99)
