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.

I too have fallen in love with Neta Jackson series from the first series she wrote Yada Yada prayer Group to the House of Hope and was super excited to read this one. She is one of my favorite Christian authors.

Neta Jackson, does it again with another great book in her House of Hope Series. This is one of those books that keeps you totally engrossed until the end. Phenomenal writing, characters, plot and descriptions throughout. I not only feel like I know the story but rather that I am apart of it! It's GREAT!

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.

*sigh* I just could not finish this one. So I won't give it a star rating since I would think that unfair. But I will say that I am sure others may enjoy this book but I just could not get into it. Not too mention a couple inconsistencies that irritated me i.e. in the beginning of the book Avis says that when she tries to call her daughter's cell it says that the number is no longer in service but then not even two pages later she is contemplating leaving a message on said cell, then proceeds to think about calling her again a page later. How can you leave a message on a cell that when called says the number is no longer in service? That was not my only reasoning for not liking it though. I have previously read a book or two by Neta Jackson a few years ago that I can recall liking but sadly this one was just not my cup of tea. ** The publisher provided me with a complimentary copy of this book through BookLook Bloggers for review purposes. **

Loved this book just like all the books you feel like you know the people as if they were your neighbor, and things that can happen to anyone the stories are not fantasies they can be anyone's life. Already started second book.

I was a little caught off guard with this book. I really wasn't expecting to enjoy the characters as much as I did. I've read a lot of reviews  about Neta Jackson and her Yada Yada Prayer Group series. I haven't read any of those but after reading this and the way she is so  detailed with her characters and their interaction with each other, I'm going to look into that series. Kathryn is a white woman  who after finding herself with many problems left med school and found religion by going to a Christian school. She meets a very successful black woman by the name of Avis who judges Kathryn without knowing her first, as I'm sure we all can relate to.. I know  I can. Throughout the book you read about the struggles these women go through in life and family and how their paths cross and how  they deal with these things to become better women, better people.t really makes you think about yourself as a person and what you can do to improve yourself as not only a woman, in my case, but also as human being. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through Booksneeze Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

This is a truly wonderful, Christian novel! It helps show how the Lord can use two women, who seem to be opposite in many ways, to enrich the life if each other! This was a great book and I recommend giving it a try!

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.
