Hope Benson is in charge of Casa de Jesus better known as J House, which is a women’s shelter in San Francisco. She has to find a way to let others take over as she is faced with a difficult, unplanned pregnancy. Andy Taylor is a very reluctant participant who has moved to San Francisco with her husband. She has a growing home-based business that she truly does not want leave behind.
Julia Collins is an attorney trying to find her teenage granddaughter who has left both her grandmother’s home and her mother’s home and is rumored to be involved with life on the streets. Clarice Van Dam’s life has been turned completely upside down with the disappearance of her husband who so nicely left her with nothing but the few items on her person.
Each one of these women comes in contact with J House and its participants under their own circumstances. They quickly become friends and work together to find answers to the controversy in each of their lives. They pool resources to be able to continue helping those who need J House and keep it out of the hands of those who wish to do it harm.
What a true testament to family, friends, and the power of God and prayer. Ms. Snelling has written an immensely emotion-filled read that this reviewer could not get through without keeping a box of tissues nearby. This truly is a book for the bookshelf. It comes brimming with excellent well-rounded characters that show flaws and all; a storyline that will just blow you away and touch your heart strings just the way an author and a book should. Saturday Morning is my first taste of Ms. Snelling’s work, and she now truly has a new fan.
