In Stand By Me, Neta Jackson sets up an unusual relationship between two opposite personalities. However, in the end, the purpose of His doing would begin to bring restoration and healing to the character named Kat. Kat was a young women newly saved and seeking her place in life. She was somewhat estranged from her family and longed to be accepted and loved by her parents. When hearts begin to change, things begin to happen.
If you've never read any of Neta Jackson books, I would definitely recommend all the books including Souled Out Sisters.
Disclosure of Material Connection- I received Stand by Me A Souled Out Sisters Novel by Neta Jackson for free from the The B & B Media Group. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.
This book draws you into life situations and you find yourself actually praying for the characters to come through their personal trials and troubles. Very well written. The Yada-Yada's have split off into their own personal stories. The writer does a great job of doing this and it very much worth the reading. Enjoy!
I haven't read Jackson's Yada Yada Prayer Group novels, so this is the first I've been introduced to Avis Douglass. I liked Avis more than any other character in this book. She's a strong black woman, a strong Christian woman, a devoted wife, and a loving mother and grandmother. Her story was most interesting. What was going on with her daughter? How were things going to turn out with her job? What decision would she and her husband make concerning their - or I should really say his - plans for their future? I kept turning the pages to find out the answers to these questions.
Kathryn `Kat' Davies is a young college student and a Babe in Christ - a Christian who has just begun the spiritual life. Judging by the cover, I thought she and Avis were close friends, but that was not the case. Avis didn't know what to think of Kat and sometimes neither did I. She was kinda out there every now and then. She's a `we are the world' character, which was good, but she had naively optimistic views. She was also flighty and so, so pushy and a bit irritating at times. And the whole dumpster thing? I didn't like it at all.
There are parts of this story that made me feel as if I was reading inspirational and encouraging Bible devotions and I loved that. I could have been bothered by the conversation in the ladies restroom, but I appreciated the author's honesty. I understood how Avis felt after what she'd overheard, but I hoped she'd do her best to get her mind back on Jesus. Jackson did not sugarcoat, but showed how some Christians feel about integration in the church and how two-faced some Christians can be. My thinking is this: Anyone who claims to be a Christian - a believer in Jesus Christ - has to know that GOD IS LOVE and LOVE is not rude, LOVE does not discriminate, and LOVE does not see a person as less than because of skin color.
Stand by Me was a pleasure to read. Jackson writes clever similes and her descriptive sentences helped me to get a good visual of the characters and the atmosphere - I felt as if I was right there. Jackson clearly shows that Christianity does not mean perfection; that although we Christians are saved by grace we're not always so quick to show grace to others. I plan to read the next SouledOut Sisters novel.
