Sometimes you find hope in the last place you look.
Gabrielle Fairbanks has nearly lost touch with the carefree, spirited young woman she was shen she married her husband sixteen years ago. But when the couple moves to Chicago to accommodate Philip's ambition, Gabby longs for the chance to find real purpose in her own life.
A chance encounter with a homeless woman suddenly opens a dooor she never expected. The women of Manna House Women's Shelter need a Program Director--and she has the right credentials. Gabby's in her element, feeling God's call on her life at last, even though Philip doesn't like the changes he sees in her. But she never anticipated his ultimatum: quit your job at the shelter or risk divorce and losing custody of our sons.
In this moment, Gabby's entire foundation shifts. She must find refuge, as in the song they sing at Sunday worship: "Where do I go when there's no one else to turn to . . . I go to the Rock I know that's able, I go to the Rock."
For everyone who loves the best-selling Yada Yada Prayer Group novels comes a brand new series sprinkled with familiar faces and places from the Yada Yada world. It's the perfect novel to start with--or to meet friends from past Yada stories.
Where Do I Go? is realistic and easy to follow. Gabby is three-dimensional and relatable, her problems are real, and her reactions to them are believable. Her relationship with her husband is quickly distinguishable as one that is strained and unhealthy, whereas those that she forms with the people of the Manna House are godly and edifying.
Gabby is a refreshing change from most Christian fictional characters I have experienced. She has her own personality, rather than bits and pieces of other personalities. She finds herself thrown up against very real, yet common problems. Gabby finds more and more throughout the book that she does not have it all together, as she thought, but her relationship with God is believable in that it is built up gradually from almost nothing. There is no definite point at which she surrenders her life completely and embarks on a flawless walk with God; she continuously struggles with her faith in a very real way. The people she interacts with at the Manna House are not perfect, either. They all have their own struggles as well, but they lean on each other to make it through.
Overall, I was extremely impressed with this novel. I would recommend it to any woman who cares for realistic Christian literature that could have a powerful impact on her life. -- Rebekah R. Blomenberg, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
D AnnSidney, OHAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Thoroughly loved this series of booksMarch 19, 2012D AnnSidney, OHAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am a fan of the Yada Yada series (wish I could find a group of praying women like that)! I was a little concerned about buying the next series, Yada Yada House of Hope, but it more than met my expectations. Read the whole series in a week. Would definitely recommend this series!
Granny DHanover, PaAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5This is a great series about 'real life'.March 12, 2012Granny DHanover, PaAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have had the first book in the series for over 2 years and within the last month I got the second one. Well last week I started to read the first and did it in one day and then the next one in a day and then the next day I bought the next two as ebooks and have just about finished the last one all since last Thursday. I must tell you I am a fairly recent retiree with time to read. Neta writes stories of 'real life type situations' that are just to hard for me to put down. I have read all her Yada Yada series and now this series has some of the same 'people ' in it. Just can't get enough of them. I now think I have to start with her husband's series about some of these 'people' from a man side. The only problem is I can't wait to get them and so I can't get them from a library but need to buy them.

Things just kept twisting and turning and you could feel her pain and turmoil. What a well written book! I can hardly wait to read her next one in the series. This is the first book I have read by Net Jackson, but it will not be the last one! I think this would make a great gift for a highschool girl or young married woman.
