Harry Bentley's Second Sight

Book #2 in the Yada Yada Brothers series

By Dave Jackson

He couldn't see his way clear ... until God gave him a "second sight."

Retired Chicago cop, Harry Bentley, was doing just fine. He had custody of his grandson, DaShawn, giving him a second chance at being a good parent. He was enjoying a second romance with the enchanting Estelle Williams. He had finally connected with God, thanks to the Yada Yada brothers. And he was even enjoying SouledOut Community Church and helping at Manna House shelter for women.

So, why was his eye giving him fits?

A blind spot had developed in the very center of his vision with strange distortions around it. Was it a brain tumor? A stroke? Diabetes? Worse ... was he going blind? There was no way he could face life like this ... let alone raise his grandson or propose marriage to Estelle.

Where was God? And why, at the height of his crisis, did all sorts of other complications crop up—his alcoholism, Estelle's emotionally disturbed son, his renegade boss from the Chicago Police Department, and an attempt on the life of Gabby Fairbanks' estranged husband?

He couldn't see his way clear ... until God gave him a "second sight."

This story parallels Who Do I Lean On? the third book in Neta Jackson's House of Hope series, but from another perspective. It's like reading in 3-D and seeing more than you ever imagined was there.

More About Parallel Novels

From the beginning, Harry Bentley was a friend to Gabby Fairbanks, the main character in Neta's House of Hope novels, but you’ve seen Harry only through Gabby’s eyes and may not realize he is a retired Chicago cop who put himself on the line by blowing the whistle on a corrupt and dangerous colleague.

He and Estelle are “an item,” but have you been on a date with them?

He’s raising his grandson, but why?

He saves Gabby’s estranged husband from being shot, but how?

He’s found faith through the Yada Yada brothers’ Bible study group, but can it carry him through the most frightening experience of his life?

The Yada Yada Brothers novels by Dave Jackson parallel Neta’s House of Hope novels and represent a different kind of reading enjoyment, three-dimensional literature, if you will. It’s something that only a husband and wife writing team could pull off. Each novel stands alone but takes place in the same time frame, same neighborhood, involving some of the same characters living through their own dramas and crises but interacting with and affecting one another … just the way it happens in real life.
