From Bags to Riches

Sandra Bricker has completed her Jessie Stanton series in a most satisfying fashion. Jessie has come full circle--from being abandoned by Jack to being married to Danny; from losing everything she ever owned to having more than she could ever imagine; from living at a distance from God to living fully surrendered to Him. I almost feel that saying more would be spoiling the book for other readers. A lot of the same characters are in this book that were in the earlier ones, even the despicable Jack. It's just in this book, you get to see just how despicable Jack is. In the first book of the series, all Jessie has is her clothes and the diamond ring Jack gave her. She sold the ring in order to get an apartment and to open a designer clothing on consignment store. Now Jack is back and he wants the ring back. He's not exactly thrilled that Jessie has sold it. While the book is not about Jack, he is one of those characters that must be understood to understand the motives of the other characters and to understand what underlies Jessie's distance from God and her journey to God.

This is a solid four star book.

My thanks to Abingdon Press for allowing me to read and review this book.
