Sometimes the person you most need is the one least like you. Kathryn Davies is a bright young woman from a prominent Phoenix family. But after making a leap of faith at a Christian music fest, dropping out of med school, and moving to inner city Chicago, her family all but disowns her. When Kat discovers SouledOut Community Church, she longs to become a part of the multicultural church family. But her tendency to immediately say whatever she’s thinking steps on the toes of nearly everyone she meets — especially Avis Douglass. Avis has a strong faith, is the principal of one of Chicago’s highest performing elementary schools, and is a founding member of SouledOut. But the country’s economic downturn has thrown both her and her husband’s jobs in question. And Avis hasn’t heard from her youngest daughter in months — an estrangement that gnaws at her every day. Where is God in this? Kat’s flamboyant zeal for living a “radical” Christian life is a stark contrast to Avis’s more reserved faith. But in God’s timing, the two women discover they need each other in ways neither of them expected.

Author Bio: Neta Jackson

Author Bio: Neta Jackson

Neta Jackson and her husband Dave have won numerous awards for the books they have written together. Born in Winchester, Kentucky in 1944, Neta Jackson is the daughter of a Christian-school principal father and a school librarian mother. Her childhood took her from Boston, Massachusetts, to Longview, Texas, to Seattle, Washington. She barely noticed because she always had her nose in a book—when she wasn’t drawing pictures of horses. Her love of perfectly placed words never wavered. As a high school senior, she took the winnings from a Scholastic Magazine First Place Award for story writing and bought a typewriter. She hasn’t quit writing since.
