When her husband goes away on business trip and the kids are sent off to the grandparents for a month, Rachelle takes up the challenge of a dying friend to start a list of things to do before she dies. She heads back to Jubilant, Texas, to reconnect with her past, her purpose, and herself. But when her ex shows up in town looking very fine and very single, Rachelle must confront feelings she thought she'd long buried. Will she give up everything to recover the past?

Reviews - What do customers think about Someday List (Jubilant Soul V1)?
Wanting to know more Apr 30, 2010
I truly enjoyed The Someday List. I think that the main character, Rachelle Covington, is someone that many people could relate to. She has everything: beautiful children, handsome husband, wealth, and societal status. However, she feels trapped in an unhappy marriage. Throughout the novel, we see her struggle with maintaining her current marriage or giving in to feelings for her first husband. I enjoyed seeing the spiritual changes in the main characters, but the ending was sort of a let down. I wanting more resolution. Overall, the book was a fast read, and I would definitely recommend to others.
Mistakes and Missteps Mar 21, 2010
Rachelle Covington is a wife and mother, who, while she enjoys the amenities of her life, is wondering about the what ifs. With the children off to spend the summer with her parents, it seems as if she and her husband, Gabe, are virtual strangers. Sure she knows everything about him, but does he know anything about her? For that matter, does Rachelle know anything about herself?
Gabe is off to a medical conference and then on a mission trip to Africa. Rachelle can't wait as she's got plans of her own that don't involve the children, or her husband. Unfortunately, as she lands in Los Angeles to visit Jillian, her childhood best friend, she learns that the life she's become accustom to doesn't exactly define her.
In her visit to Los Angeles, Rachelle just isn't ready to return home. Instead she heads to Jubilant, Texas, where she went to college to visit her aunts and uncle. What Rachelle soon discovers is her past has pulled into town right along with her and it's time to deal with `the what ifs.' Unable to decipher all that's going on in her life, Rachelle turns to the only person who can truly help her, GOD. It appears that she isn't the only one making transformations. Will this be the beginning of a new life or the end to an old life?
THE SOMEDAY LIST by Stacy Hawkins Adams was a very good read. I enjoyed that the story explains the past without detouring from the current story. The characters are entertaining and I can see myself continuing in this series. I especially loved how relevant forgiveness, love and God are to the story, as in life.
A must read! Mar 20, 2010
If you are going through marriage issues and struggling with faith, this is for you. This book couldn't have had better timing for me. I know this is fiction but the facts are still there. God is always there, even for heathens like me.
Reality Check Mar 18, 2010
This book is a very good book that will open the eyes of all readers. It is very touching. I have created a somedays list and after reading this book the reader will have no choice but to want to do the same.
Nothing great, but not horrible either Mar 15, 2010
Not a page turner, not unpredictable. Glad it was free. Didn't make me want to reexamine my life.
