Who Do I Lean On? is the third book in Neta Jackson’s House of Hope series. Where Do I Go? and Who Do I Talk To? are the first two books, where we met Gabby Fairbanks after her husband kicked her out and changed all the locks. Now in Who Do I Lean On? Gabby is back on her feet, ready to gain custody of her two boys and planning something so big only God could be in charge of it all.
Gabby braces herself for a tough custody battle. Instead she found that her husband does not want to fight her and he is over his head in gambling debts. At the same time Lee, Gabby’s lawyer has made hints he would like to be more than friends. With Gabby’s new project, her boys adjusting to a new school, and trying not to run ahead of God’s plans, she finds her life spinning out of control. Gabby has found her strength lies in abiding in God’s word and in his love. God continues to show Gabby He has everything under control.
I have enjoyed this House of Hope book series and I feel there is still a lot more to be shared about Gabby’s story. This book had a lot of sub-stories that did get to be a bit confusing at times. I enjoyed each story but felt they were only glassed over and then moved on. I like how Neta Jackson’s books do not end with a tidy bow at the end. Life is messy and we may not always make the best choices, but God is there working in our favor and using some of our mistakes to His glory. This is a book I recommend, but I would recommend the first two stories in the series first. Each story builds upon each other.
