WHO DO I TALK TO?
Jackson's second Yada Yada House of Hope book is engaging and compelling. The author's strength has always been her superb characters, and this novel is no exception. The faith element is strong and well integrated into the story.
Gabby Fairbanks is homeless after her husband kicks her out of their apartment and takes off with their boys. She and her elderly mother move into Manna House, the women's shelter where Gabby works. Slowly, Gabby begins to discover who she is and takes steps to gain more control over her life. (THOMAS NELSON, Oct., 416 pp., $14.99)
