Neta Jacksons STAND BY ME


I love Neta Jackson’s books so much I succumbed to getting an ereader so I could read her latest book.  J Not really, but I did get a Nook for my birthday and Stand By Me was the first book I read on it. I have never been disappointed in any book by Neta as she has a way of making you feel like her characters are your neighbors so you get involved and take a personnel interest in the story.

This is the first of a new series, the SouledOut Sisters. The main characters are some of the original Yada Yada Prayer Group. The opening one of the series is about Avis Douglas, the initial leader of the group and an elementary school principal, who just happens to be African American. Mix in some eager, naïve Christian college students who sublet one of the apartments in the same building as Avis and her husband Peter, a multi ethnic church with the stirrings of racial tension and you have the beginning of a tapestry that only God could make something beautiful out of. 

I would not hesitate to recommend this book to every woman who loves to see the truth of how God can and does work in our lives. 

I received this book free from Thomas Nelson to read and give an honest review.
