Item description for Where Do I Go?: A Yada Yada House of Hope Novel (Yada Yada House Of Hope #1) by Neta Jackson...
Overview Manna House needs a new service director; Gabrielle Fairbanks has a social work degree and wants to feel useful. A perfect match? Not according to Gabrielle's husband who issues an ultimatum that she must quit the shelter job or risk divorce and lose custody of their sons.
Sometimes you find hope in the last place you look.
Gabrielle Fairbanks has nearly lost touch with the carefree, spirited young woman she was shen she married her husband sixteen years ago. But when the couple moves to Chicago to accommodate Philip's ambition, Gabby longs for the chance to find real purpose in her own life.
A chance encounter with a homeless woman suddenly opens a dooor she never expected. The women of Manna House Women's Shelter need a Program Director--and she has the right credentials. Gabby's in her element, feeling God's call on her life at last, even though Philip doesn't like the changes he sees in her. But she never anticipated his ultimatum: quit your job at the shelter or risk divorce and losing custody of our sons.
In this moment, Gabby's entire foundation shifts. She must find refuge, as in the song they sing at Sunday worship: "Where do I go when there's no one else to turn to . . . I go to the Rock I know that's able, I go to the Rock."
For everyone who loves the best-selling Yada Yada Prayer Group novels comes a brand new series sprinkled with familiar faces and places from the Yada Yada world. It's the perfect novel to start with--or to meet friends from past Yada stories.

More About Neta Jackson
As a husband/wife writing team, Dave and Neta Jackson are enthusiastic about books, kids, walking with God, gospel music, and each other! Together we are the authors or coauthors of over 120 books. In addition to writing several books about Christian community, we have been privileged to coauthor numerous books with expert resource people on a variety of topics from racial reconciliation to medical ethics to ministry to kids in gangs.
But over the years we have especially enjoyed writing for children and young people! This includes our award-winning TRAILBLAZER series, historical fiction about great Christian heroes and heroines for young people ages 8-12, and the four-volume HERO TALES: A Family Treasury of True Stories from the Lives of Great Christians, and the companion book, Heroes in Black History.
Somewhere along the way, our own children grew up! Son Julian is Director of Experience Design for the Alder Planetarium in Chicago where he “provides the experience of exploring space” for visitors. He has two sons, Liam Isaac and Elijah David. Daughter Rachel graduated from Eastern Mennonite University and after working in the field of rape-crisis prevention went on to earn a Masters Degree in counseling from the University of Illinois. She is now a counselor at “Uni High School” in Champaign, Illinois. She is the loving mother of Havah Noelle (our first grandchild!) and Noah Zion, our youngest grandchild. The Jackson family also includes a Cambodian foster daughter, Samen Sang, who has four children.
We live in Evanston, Illinois, where for twenty-seven years we were part of Reba Place Church, a Christian church community. We are now members of a multi-racial congregation in the Chicago area.
Neta Jackson currently resides in Chicago, in the state of Illinois.

Reviews - What do customers think about Where Do I Go? (Yada Yada House Of Hope V1)?
Didn't want to like this but.......... Dec 11, 2009
Really I didn't even want to like this. Being a great fan of the Yada, Yada series I was disappointed that Neta Jackson was starting a new series that the characters from Yada would appear in but not be central to the story. I figured if the characters I loved were just going to skim the sides of the story it wasn't worth it and a new character couldn't be as good as the ones I knew. Boy was I wrong. I just finished "Where Do I Go?" and immediately picked up "Who Do I Talk To?" (I'm on chapter two now). I admit sometimes I wanted to scream through the pages for Gabby to stand up and give her husband a real piece of her mind but despite not completely relating to her character she still pulled me in and page after page I wanted to know more and find out what happens to her. And it turns out the Yada characters do more than just float in and out of the book - they're a big part of the story and if you know them already it's fun to see how they look through Gabby's eyes. In all Neta Jackson has started another great series; I'm looking forward to finishing the next book and I'm being spoiled by reading them back to back because I'm sure when I'm done I'll be waiting very impatiently for #3.
Don't want the book to end. Nov 25, 2009
There are so many wonderful reviews already that I don't feel as though I can contribute any more, except to say that I find the story so rich and powerful that I don't want it to end. I read, re-read, and relish each page.
Yada Yada House of Hope Series Nov 2, 2009
I just finished Where do I go? and just picked up Who do I talk to? It was a great continuation of the Yada Yada Prayer Group Series. I love Neta Jackson's writings.. There is just enough of the fiction and just enough of the Christian Story to make everyone happy!! But dont get me wrong I LOVE IT JUST THE WAY IT IS!! Keep up the great work NETA!!
Sickly Sweet Oct 22, 2009
I am all for a feel good beachy read kind of book, but this one was just over the top for me. Perhaps it was this cold and damp Chicago weather that ruined it for me, but I just couldn't relate at all to the characters in this book.
Oh my gosh! Sep 27, 2009
Neta Jackson outdid herself this time. The endearing new believer, the sleazebag husband, the innocent children and all the characters from Manna House - some new and some from Neta Jackson's previous series- this book is definitely worth the time to read it. I can't wait to enjoy the next in this series.
