Who Do I Lean On?

You can only walk forward when you learn how to lean.

Just months after her husband threw her out of their penthouse and sent their two sons away, Gabrielle Fairbanks is finally getting back on her feet. She has a job she loves at the homeless shelter, an apartment for her and the boys, caring friends, and even a new love interest. Best of all, an unexpected windfall has given her a brand-new dream--a House of Hope for homeless mothers and their children.

Piece by piece, Gabby's new life is coming together--but the old one keeps dragging her back. First her husband Philip hints at a reconciliation...then hits her up for a loan to pay his gambling debts. And when Gabby tells him no, he makes a desperate move that puts them all in harm's way. How can she even think of embarking on a new venture when so much is up in the air?

Gabby is realizing that she needs something far greater than her own strength or even that of her friends. That to move forward, she must first lean on the only One who knows what the future holds.


Have you read the Yada Yada Prayer Group series? If you haven't, you can still read the Yada Yada House of Hope series. You won't have a background of some of the characters, but you can do it. But you need to start with the first of the series before you read Who Do I Lean On?, the third book in this series.

I just like this series. I can't help it. I really like the person that Gabby has transformed in since the beginning of the series. She kind of got on my nerves at first, but she's really become a strong woman. She needs to work on patience, but then again, so do I. She wants things to happen now!

I'm glad she didn't let Philip walk all over her, but they get a divorce? Will they somehow figure out how to work it out? You know they should, but he's such a jerk, you just want Gabby to kick him to the curb. You also want her to smack P.J. for being too much like his father. How do you deal with a teenage boy with such an attitude and prejudices against people?

In September, Neta's husband, Dave, has the second book about Harry Bentley coming out. It takes place at the same time as this book, but features the male counterparts of the Yada Yada sisters. I'm ready to read it!
