Who Is My Shelter: A Book Review

About The Book:

Gabby knows God is the God of second chances.

But can she give one to the man who betrayed her?

When she was thrown out of the penthouse she shared with her husband and their sons, Gabby didn’t know if she’d ever find a soft place to land. But after seeking refuge at the shelter where she works, extraordinary things happen as she is reintroduced to God.

From the ashes of her marriage comes the House of Hope—a safe haven for homeless moms and their children.

But now those ashes of her destroyed marriage are being stirred again. When her long-gone husband’s life hits rock bottom, he reappears and asks for one more chance. And Gabby faces what feels like an impossible choice. Take him back. Or keep moving forward without him. Toward someone new who hasn’t betrayed her.

Is God redeeming what Gabby thought was gone forever? Or is He leading her down a different path and giving her something—and someone—new?

About The Author:

Neta Jackson's award-winning Yada books have sold more than 400,000 copies and are spawning prayer groups across the country. She and her husband, Dave, are also an award-winning writing team, best known for the Trailblazer Books--a 40-volume series of historical fiction about great Christian heroes with 1.5 million in sales--and Hero Tales: A Family Treasury of True Stories from the Lives of Christian Heroes (vols 1-4). They live in the Chicago metropolitan area, where the Yada stories are set.

My Review:

I have been a fan of Neta Jackson for many years, so was very excited to read the final book in the House of Hope Series, Who Is My Shelter. Once again, Jackson did not disappoint with a fun, fast-paced book with characters that all readers will relate to. The book is very well written, organized and easy to read. Perfect for young adult aged readers and up!

I think the characters and their life experiences are what initially drew me to the books, and to this one in particular. Who Is My Shelter is a fantastic story of forgiveness and what happens when we give God all our life and allow His Grace to come over our life. It is probably my favorite book in the series and I look forward to reading more of Neta Jackson in the near future, and I love that she plans to release more Yada books in the future.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
