In book one, a wildly diverse group of women weathered storms together that brought them unusually close. These beautiful new relationships are now stretched to the limit in The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Down. Jodi Baxter is recovering physically and spiritually from her car accident that killed a young boy; MaDear comes to believe that Jodi’s husband helped lynch her older brother over 70 years ago in the Deep South; and during a Yada Yada prayer meeting, a heroin-crazed woman robs the group at knifepoint. As these events unfold, the Yada Yada Prayer Group draws close together, trying new worship styles at each other’s churches, dealing with estranged families, and walking out into deeper waters of faith. After the group’s first-year anniversary, they truly begin to live the meaning of their name and discover that getting down on their knees is the most freeing place of all.

About the Author
Author 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.
