Behind every skyline there are neighborhoods, relationships, people, and stories …
By Neta Jackson
In the last place she ever imagined she'd be,
Gabby will discover what she's made of—and for.
Gabrielle Fairbanks knew her husband was upset with her. But she never expected him to change the locks on their Chicago penthouse, cancel her credit cards, and disappear with their two boys. Now she’s literally on the streets with her elderly mother, her mom’s dog ... and $220 to her name.
Thank goodness she has somewhere to go—Manna House, the women's shelter where she works. But even in the bustling shelter—surrounded by residents and the Yada Yada Prayer Group—Gabby feels more alone than ever. She longs for someone she can really talk to, someone to help mend together the pieces of her broken life. Her warm-hearted lawyer seems ready to offer more than legal counsel ... but is he the answer to prayer or just a pleasant distraction?
As her fragile plans fall apart, Gabby hits on a possibility so wild and wonderful it has to be one of those “God things.” Something she's only seen happen to other Christians. Until now.

“Who Do I Talk To? is one of the strangest books I've ever read,” wrote Neta's editor after reading the manuscript. “Don't get me wrong, I loved it—love it! But seriously: It's about [Gabby Fairbanks] learning to walk in faith while homeless, trying to get her sons back from her conniving husband. And then her mom dies, and she [along with Jodi Baxter] drives the corpse across country in a casket in the back of a van with her homeless friend [Lucy] and Dandy the dog in tow.... And yet you pull it off beautifully. And I was so blessed by the journey.”
And now you are invited to come along for the ride!
As reviewer Lori Kasbeer wrote, “I believe a good author has you thinking about the book even when you are not reading it. Neta Jackson is that type of author. I found when I set the book down, I was often wondering why Gabby made certain decisions, what if she tried a different alternative. Who Do I Talk To? has unexpected twists and turns, but through it all you see God's hand moving in unexpected ways.”
For everyone who loves the best-selling Yada Yada Prayer Group novels, the Yada Yada House of Hope series features familair faces and places with a fresh new life all its own.
And if you haven't caught up with what has been happening with Gabby's friend, Harry Bentley, the affable doorman from her “former” penthouse apartment, be sure to order Dave's parallel novel, Harry Bentley's Second Chance, A Yada Yada Brothers Novel. Because Harry, Estelle, and the other characters you've come to love play an important role in Who Do I Talk To?
