Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Her future was just coming into focus. But what will she do when everything becomes a blur?

Indigo Burns's life is going according to plan. She possesses the ambition and talent to be a professional photographer, and she thanks God for all the blessings that surround her. Now, all at once, Indigo's family life, love life, and hopes for success have flipped upside down. Indigo loves the Lord, but can she trust him to work his plan in her life?

Worth a Thousand Words dramatically explores the tough decisions one woman must make in the world of love, relationships, and career. Will Indigo find the courage to face her own truths--and accept those being harbored by the people she loves most? Either way, she risks losing everything she's ever wanted.


"A novel that will reawaken the power within you to be free to become all that God has created you to be. You will be delighted, inspired, and transformed."--Marina Woods, president , GoodGirlBookClubOnline.com

I'm eagerly awaiting the next book in this series.

Indigo faces this issue and we have to wait to see if she will break Brian's heart to pursue her dream career or unselfishly give it up for love.

I have never read anything from Stacy Hawkins Adams before and all though it was not a bad book I just couldn't get into the story.

I just finished reading both "The Someday List" and "Worth a thousand words" and they were both enlightening! I loved the characters and how Ms. Adams speaks to the reader in the situations that a character faces. She included some great advice for marriages, for those who want to give their lives to the Lord and those who were true believers in what God can and will do if they have faith. Indigo truly listened to what God was putting on her heart, and followed it. She dealt with a lot over the summer but grew from it immensely. Thank you so much for such inspirational reads and I am waiting anxiously for the next one in the "Jubilant Soul" series! Keep up the good work and may God continue to bless you!

Format: Paperback
Indigo Burns, a twenty-three year old recent college graduate, is on top of the world with a very bright future ahead of her! Life is wonderful for Indigo - she has a summer internship and graduate school beginning in the fall. However, a surprise marriage proposal from her boyfriend, Brian, may change all of Indigo's future plans. After the proposal, a fast downward spiral begins for both Indigo and Brian. Her plans to become a world class photographer and graduate student now hang in the balance.

Indigo is forced to make new decisions and find answers - marriage or career? Why the rush to get married? Indigo, however, is not the only one struggling to find answers. Her fiancé, Brian, is battling past demons that could tear the relationship apart. With the help of their families and their faith in God, both Indigo and Brian will try to make decisions that are right for them individually and as a couple. In the process, there will be huge price to pay.

It is interesting that "Indigo" (blue) is the color of a deep midnight sky. The color and word is often synonymous with wisdom and spiritual realization - similar to the character and her journey. Regardless of the best made plans - they are never designed to work out perfectly - nothing in life is easy. Author Stacy Hawkins Adams has written a top notch love story with just enough twists and turns to keep the reader turning each page to find out what the next secret or surprise will be. Add this one to your library!

Indigo Burns was on the bridge of getting everything she wanted, so of course this bridge was bound to collapse. It seems like this is the time that these things always happen, she thought things were going great then all of a sudden..bam. Now she has to deal with a lot of family issues, plus a health issue of her own, but the big one is Brian.

Brian wants to get married so that she will go with him to where ever he will get stationed after OCS training, he figures she can get a job taking pictures there, but he also has ulterior motives for his actions. Indigo wants to go to grad school and doesn't understand why all of a sudden Brian wants to get married right away, and she is a bit uncomfortable with everything.

I have never read anything from Stacy Hawkins Adams before and all though it was not a bad book I just couldn't get into the story. The story moved along because the chapters where short but it just didn't hold my attention. I do believe that not all books are meant forever one so I am not saying that this is not a good book but just not for me. I have read a lot of good reviews about this book, and I recommend that if it sounds like a nice book that you should give it a try.

Format: Paperback
Indigo Burns has been accepted into a prestigious graduate program for photography. Her life's dream has always been to become a major photographer and her chance is before her. The question is will other things get in her way. Will the fact that her boyfriend, Brian, who has proposed marriage, get in the way of her dreams? Or will family drama or other personal hazards stymie her dreams? Worth a Thousand Words by Stacy Hawkins Adams addresses these issues and others.

Indigo is unsure how to deal with Brian's desire to marry immediately. She really loves him and would love to be his wife. However, she would like to get her graduate degree before getting married. What she does not know is that Brian has his reasons and his reasons could be earth-shattering for the couple. Indigo is also trying to deal with a potential health hazard that could end her career before it even starts and her family's medical and personal drama is also time-consumptive.

Ms. Hawkins-Adams does a good job of revealing the problems that arise in Indigo's life and she does it in an entertaining, spiritual, yet non-preachy way. Worth a Thousand Words is the perfect book for lazy summer days and is recommended for those who love Christian and mainstream fiction.

Indigo Burns and Brian Harper dated three years in college. Brian asks Indigo to marry him and she says yes to his proposal. Then Brian goes off to Officer Candidate School so he can then move on to flight training school. Indigo's left in her hometown of Jubilant, Texas dealing with one issue after another and it begins to look like her life plan will have to be put on hold. Will she and Brian be able to work things out so Indigo will not have to give up on her dreams? Does Brian even care about her dreams? And why is he so eager to get Indigo to the alter in the first place?
This is Book Two in the Jubilant Soul series and it is a good read. Rachelle Covington and Aunt Melba are back and I like them; especially Aunt Melba. Things happened that I did not expect; some sad, some surprising. Serious issues were tackled and important lessons were taught.
