On Tuesday, I finished reading The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Tough. It was a good continuance into the lives of these women who formed this unlikely prayer group. While the first three books in the Yada Yada series weren't as heavy, this fourth novel was particularly heavy tackling the issue of racism head on.
Neta Jackson's novel is very well worded, and thought provoking. She writes about this issue bringing in perspectives from each of the ladies. Through it all, no matter which walk of life the women are from, they are united in their faith and the strength they find in prayer.
While the men in the series have always been a part of Ms. Jackson's other books, they are more at the forefront of Yada Yada #4. We get to see exactly how this prayer group has not only affected the women, but has also influenced others: husbands, children, siblings, and...well...others they would have never expected to influence.
So now with Yada Yada #4 under my belt, I have now moved on to #5 titled The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Caught. So far, I''m on page 3, but I'm sure this book will go just as swiftly as the others.
This book is 401 pages long, so I have 398 pages to go. Wish me luck!
