Stand by Me by Neta Jackson
I enjoyed Stand by Me by Neta Jackson. Kathryn, a young white woman who is a new Christian, meets Avis, a successful African American who is established in her career and at her church. Their paths cross. Avis is somewhat put off by Kathryn, but eventually she is able to look past their differences. They soon find out that they both need each in other in unexpected ways.
I liked both Kathryn and Avis. They each had believable stories and problems, as well as flaws and failures. Both Kathryn and Avis go through trials and by the end of the book grow and change. I wouldn't say that everything works out perfectly, but that is not how real life is either.
This is a sweet, uplifting book. It would make a great summer read. I was provided this copy by Book Sneeze to review.
