Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - Naomi Blackburn
Ms. Crosby has yet again given readers a protagonist to cheer for and want to wrap their arms around in Jubilee. The cast of characters are back (and strongly developed) from Spare Change, including Ethan Allen.

Meet the Author

Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby brings the wit and wisdom of her Southern Mama to works of fiction—the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away.

Crosby’s work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. Since then, she has gone on to win several more awards, including another NLAPW award, The Reviewer’s Choice Award, four Royal Palm Literary Awards, two FPA President’s Book Award Gold Medals and three Book Award Silver Medals.

Her published novels to date are: Cracks in the Sidewalk (2009), Spare Change (2011), The Twelfth Child (2012), Cupid’s Christmas (2012) and What Matters Most (2013). She has also authored “Life in the Land of IS” a memoir of Lani Deauville, a woman the Guinness Book of Records lists as the world’s longest living quadriplegic.

Crosby originally studied art and began her career as a packaging designer. When asked to write a few lines of copy for the back of a pantyhose package, she discovered a love for words that was irrepressible. After years of writing for business, she turned to works of fiction and never looked back. “Storytelling is in my blood,” Crosby laughingly admits, “My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write.”

    The is the second book in the lovely and heartwarming Wyattsvill

    The is the second book in the lovely and heartwarming Wyattsville Series.  Though not completely necessary, this story will be much more enjoyable if you read SPARE CHANGE first, as there is a lot built on the first story in this series. Young Ethan Allen and his "Grandma" will befriend Jubilee in this book and the empathy they feel is because of their back story.




    That being said, this is once again a beautiful story of God's working in the lives of children without families, and the people of Wyattsville who take them into their hearts and homes.  Seven year old Jubilee and her teen aged brother, Paul have just become orphans. They have lived in a small mining town in West Virginia, but now that their miner father has died, they must leave the company house.  Paul has been caring for Jubilee all her life because of their mother's severe illness and death.  Now they are traveling to Wyattsville to look for their illusive Aunt Anita,  whom they've never met or talked to in their lives.  All they have are some old letters that their mom had saved.




    On arriving in town, Paul goes to inquire about a job he saw advertised in a store window, but finds himself caught in the misfire of a holdup.  Both Paul, and the store owner are injured and in comas.  The robber has run away.  With no reliable witnesses, there is conflict between the policeman who concludes Paul was a robber, and the policeman who feels Paul was in the wrong place at the wrong time.  While all this is happening, Ethan Allen has brought the little girl in the park home with him, as she has no place to go.  His Grandma wants to help her, and this story begins in ernest.




    Lovely story, wonderfully written!!  God has a plan for our lives and that plan is perfect---but it just might take some time and anxiety to see that plan play out.

    I just finished Jubilee¿s Journey. It is a suspense novel writte

    I just finished Jubilee’s Journey. It is a suspense novel written by Bette Lee Crosby. Jubilee and her brother, Paul, lose both of their parents. On the way to find their only living family, Paul gets involved in a robbery and is wrongfully accused of doing it. Jubilee is left without anybody she ever knew or loved because of it. Will Paul be found innocent or will he be arrested for a crime he didn’t commit?




    I want to start off by saying that I really loved this book. I have to be honest and say that I haven’t fully read the first book yet. It’s called Spare Change. I did read some of it though and can’t wait to finish it. Both of these books have the power to sink you in from the very first few pages. I found that I felt for many of the characters. I love how well she picked up on the close minded hostility many southerners seem to hold on to as well. This isn’t an insult; just a fact. 




    I hated getting to the last page knowing that the story was now over. I’m left with a wicked book hangover wishing I knew what happened to the characters after the story ended. I’m sure there are many stories out there like this for me. It was beautifully written nonetheless. I’m so glad that I got the opportunity to read this book. 




    I fully recommend this book to everybody. I especially recommend it if you love suspense and thrillers. This is a real page turner for sure. Don’t get this book if you don’t plan on getting hooked on a book. Trust me on that. It is a book that you can really sink your teeth into. I can’t wait to read many more books by Bette Lee Crosby.

    The way sibling should be

    You will fall in love with Jubilee after about two pages of reading. She is steadfast in her love for her brother, and no amount of adult interference is going to make her believe that her brother is guilty of the crime he is being accused of! This is an excellent book - you will really enjoy it!

    Loved it!

    This sequel to Spare Change is just as heart-warming and real. The characters are all people you know or want to know, and the story is one of love and triumph. Not sure I "loved" the end, but I certainly loved Jubilee's Journey.

    Great follow-up

    I enjoyed this as much as I did Spare Change. I can relate to the young person helping another in straits similar to what he knew. I only hope there are follow-up stories to this one.

    In the style of Grace Livingston Hill

    This book was fantastic. Has you reaching for a kleenex one minute and laughing hysterically the next. Kind of reminded me of books I read years ago by Grace Livingston Hill - good, clean, heart-touching story. I haven't read the first book, but I definitely intend to now!

    I was among the lucky individuals who received an ARC of this book.

    I absolutely LOVED Spare Change and was thrilled there was a sequel to it (Jubilee's Journey). One of the characters in these books is named Ethan Allen and I am so in love with this precious little boy.

    This book is written with a wealth of southern charm and the story is fabulous. There is no way you can read this book and not come to care of each and every character. This book has a magical allure to it and as you read it and fall deeper in love with the plot and characters, it is almost like you are in the book with them. I laughed and cried and was thoroughly entertained throughout the entire book.

    By no choice of her own, Jubilee is plunked down in Wyattsville on a bench and told by her brother to wait there until he returns. After hours of waiting for her brother, a young boy, Ethan Allen, enters Jubilee's life and this is the telling of Jubilee's story and her faith in her brother.

    Definitely a 5 star read
