'Keeping Up With The Neighbors' is a beautiful story and I love that these characters are people that we may encounter in our everyday lives. They are flawed, some are Christians and some are not. The beauty in this story is that the Christians don't come off as superior to those that are not. They show more than tell that they are believers in Christ.
Tracy Krauss shows that we are all neighbors; that we must love and help one another regardless of race, color or creed. She smashes the stereotypes and lets us know that ultimately, people are just people. The story reminds me of the bible verse in the book of Mark, Chapter 12, verse 31; Love your neighbor as yourself. I highly recommend this book.
The characters (the Malloys—five young men and their sister) are earthy, relatable, often humorous, and interesting. We follow them as they find jobs in construction, the oil patch, the woods, the local bar, and a hair dressing salon, and socialize in the evenings with the locals at a neighbourhood watering hole.
These salty characters are not without their realistic problems and flaws, so be prepared for a little more edginess than you’d find in some Christian fiction. But Kraus incorporates faith as well in plot twists that feel plausible and inevitable.
Keeping up with the Neighbours is a lot of fun as well as thought-provoking, dealing with subjects like loyalty, conflicts between immigrant parents and their adult children, alcoholism, religious faith, and more. It’s a bit like reading a Calgary-based season of Cheers.
