Lucy Come Home

I recently reviewed Stand by Me by Neta Jackson, so I jumped at the chance to review this one!  Unfortunately, somehow I missed the email with my e-book and didn't get this one until last week.  That still allowed me plenty of time to read the book...UNTIL my kindle broke.  One week after my 1-year warranty the screen cracked!  I don't know what happened, I turned it on to read a couple days ago and to my dismay there were horrible lines all over the screen.  And because it is after the warranty it will cost me $65 to get it fixed (or get a replacement, however they do it!)  Uggh!  Very frustrating.

I had already read some of this one and am anxious to finish it!   The characters are so real; I am very attached!  I could try to read it on the kindle for PC app, but reading on the computer is a bit tiring and often gives me a headache.  So I may have to wait until I can replace the kindle/screen!

Here's what I have to say, so far...
Lucy Come Home has vivid characters and descriptions, real and touching emotions, smooth writing and transitions.  It is a fun, light read with a strong Christian theme, and I can't wait to see how it ends.  I have not read the entire Yada Yada series and followed this novel perfectly.  I do want to read the rest of the series now, though!!  I would recommend this book, or any by the Jacksons, without hesitation.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Now we know the rest of the story. Not only Lucy's childhood but her early years as well as what was happening during her disappearances in the recent books. Lucy has an interesting story and I'm so glad Neta has given us this look into her life.

Lucy and her carnie boyfriend run away after her boss is murdered. They leave family behind and don't look back. It's a really sad story considering they didn't have to run at all. The things they go through are heartwrenching.
