Since the day I picked up the first book in the Yada Yada Prayer Group series, I have enjoyed Neta Jackson’s writing. Within the first few pages, I fell in love with the characters and their stories. When she had completed the Yada Yada series, I was happy to see that she followed some of her characters in the House of Hope series. So, imagine my excitement when I realized she had decided to continue the stories of her characters and introduce some new ones in her latest series, Souled Out Series. I enjoyed reading this book just as much as I enjoyed all of the previous books. Each series reveals a little more about her most beloved characters and makes you want to delve deeper into their world. I cannot wait until book number two in this series comes out!

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for this review. All thoughts are my own and I was not required to post a positive review.

Stand by Me, by Neta Jackson
Kathryn is a white woman who left medschool after many problems and recently found herself in religion by a Christian school, when she meets Avis, a black woman with a successful career as a director in the school and in life. They meet in the church and Avis to be older,judges Kathryn's character before she knows her. Women have many differences, but their paths will intersect. The author can descrive from a very real way the character flaws of each, as well as their qualities, all that defines them as women and as human beings. Both of them have family problems, but together they will try to cross these differences to be better people.
The book helps to reflect on the kind of person we are, and really try to improve every day, being more sympathetic to the next, in order to become more human, and better people.

    Disappointing

    I have read all of Neta Jackson's book and this is the first one that was not up to her standard. It was hard to read and rambling in places. I think her effort to combine all of her other series weighed this one down. I won't give up on her and will read the next and hope it's better.

    This is my first Neta Jackson book and will also be my last. The entire story could have been told in half the number of pages but dragged on and on. While a lesson could be learned about a diverse group of people getting along, it seemed like Avis Douglass was a bit of a racist.

    Here is another book ruined by all the plot spoilers bragging how they got the book for free then revealing everything about the book. Wonder how the publishers and author would feel if they knew these ppl are costing them sales due to their over excessive plot reveals?
