…But Hope May Be Just Across the Street
Grace Meredith is a beloved contemporary Christian recording artist whose career–and personal life–hits unexpected turbulence. She feels grounded–in more ways than one.
Grace s fiancé, bothered by her outspoken stance on purity and her near-constant travel, has broken off their relationship. Exhausted and unable to continue her current concert schedule, Grace returns home to Chicago, where she is soon stranded in a major snowstorm. Facing new questions about her future and her faith, Grace finds herself connecting for the first time with the residents of her neighborhood. What she discovers in these unexpected relationships could change everything.Welcome to the Neighborhood
The first in the Windy City Neighbors series, Grounded is an uplifting, contemporary story about ordinary people wrestling with the spiritual and practical issues of real life. The series employs the innovative storytelling technique of parallel novels, each with its own drama and story arc, but whose characters lives become intertwined and affect one another. Grounded welcomes you to Beecham Street–a typical, isolated American neighborhood that might just be a place of hope.
My Comments:  I don’t know how they do it, but Dave and Neta Jackson create story after story weaving in characters from previous books.  Pretty soon, I’ll know all the people in Chicago!  This books seems very real.  Grace Meredith, a protected girl, has been sheltered from various situations in life and takes upon more guilt than God intends, since He has it all covered by His death on the cross.  EASY to relate to how she feels though.  Oh, to have a neighbor like Estelle – or better yet to BE a neighbor like Estelle.  She inspires me!  I found this book to be very engaging and a challenge to my faith-walk.  I will probably read every book the Jackson’s publish.  I recommend this book!
Thanks to NetGalley again, for providing this book in exchange for my honest review.
