My Comments :
I was attracted to the cover of 'Stand by Me' by Neta Jackson. I thought the story might be unique and one of a kind. I was sorely disappointed though as it was not really what I thought it would be.
Initially, I thought that the book would be lighthearted and funny with bits of drama here and there, considering how bright and upbeat the cover is, but it was the other way around. The book brought up a lot of depressing issues and while the author brought up great points to ponder upon, I find the book rather preachy
Don't get me wrong. This book is quite inspiring in a way. It teaches us the real meaning of being a Christian, submitting to God's plan and wills and whatnot, but I don't suppose that this book is for me.
You might want to give this book a try if you like self-help fiction with a leisurely pace. I rate this book 3 out of 4 stars. I received an ARC of this book from Thomas Nelson Publisher via Booksneeze.com and I was not required to write a positive review for this book.
