LUCY COME HOME by Dave and Neta Jackson

This is the first book I’ve read by Dave and Neta Jackson, but it won’t be the last. I read a lot of fiction, both Christian and otherwise. Christian fiction is often tepid and disappointing. Lucy Come Home is not tepid or disappointing. It’s well-written, yet easy to read and had me hooked from the beginning.. I loved it.

It wouldn’t be easy to create a believable story about the life of a feisty woman who makes it on the streets as a homeless person, and still keep her likeable. This book does that. I particularly liked the tension created with the back and forth from an elderly woman today to who she was in her youth.  It is well done.

I was drawn to this book after reading Water For Elephants. A book about an elderly woman who looks back on her life with carnivals and amusement parks sounded similar and I was eager to read it. It didn’t disappoint and I highly recommend it.

I’m grateful to have received this copy of Lucy Come Home compliments of Litfuse Publicity Group for an honest review.
