Book Blog Tour: Lucy Come Home by Dave and Neta Jackson

My Review of Lucy Come Home

Lucy Come Home is a novel that goes in two different directions at two different points in time. Cindy is hired to work in a store. At first the store owner felt deceived because he thought that because she said she could work with money that she could also read and write, which she couldn’t. Bo, Cindy’s friend is responsible for running rides at a carnival. Lucy wanders from place to place because she doesn’t have a home. She is so accustomed to doing that it has become a part of who she is, although she wants to be treated like everybody else and not shooed out of places where she needs to go when people think that she is looking for shelter.

I really loved reading this story. There is a connection between Cindy and Lucy that brings the story together brilliantly.  Cindy and Bo’s dedication to each other was beautiful. On one hand, it broke my heart to read about Lucy, the homeless woman in this story, when she helped people and was brushed off.  On the other hand, her character can be an example to many because I know there are people like her in the world and I wish people could see deep down in their hearts and notice their goodness and love. This story is an eye-opener in more ways than one.

I give Lucy Come Home 5 out of 5 stars!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Litfuse Publicity Group for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

  1. Dave and Neta Jackson are also the authors of the Yada Yada Prayer Group series which I have enjoyed reading. This book was a bit different in style and content. Most interesting to me was the historical content. It is easy to make assumptions about people, and this book confirmed the truth that our assumptions (even of fictional characters) can be dead wrong. If you are familiar with their House of Hope series, then you have met Lucy. This story gives meaning to her almost unexplainable lifestyle. The character development goes deep beyond just Lucy, but all that is shared about the others relates back to her.
