Nothing, or so I thought. Who would have imagined that God would make a group as mismatched as ours the closest of friends?
I almost didn't even go to the Chicago Women's Conference - after all, being thrown together with five hundred strangers wasn't exactly my "comfort zone." And being placed in a prayer group of 12 women from such diverse backgrounds seemed completely awkward.
But something happened that weekend to make us realize we had to hang together. The "Yada Yada Prayer Group" was born, and we decided to meet regularly to pray for each other: knocking off each other's rough edges and learning to laugh and cry along the way! And when I faced the biggest crisis of my life, God used my newfound girlfriends to help teach me - Jodi Baxter, longtime Christian "good girl" - what it means to be just a sinner saved by grace.

The story is heartwarming and real. What a wonderful prayer group to belong to. Would love to see this type of love in the real world.
I enjoy Barbara Rosenblat so much, that when a friend recommended this book and I discovered it was narrated by Ms. Rosenblat - I purchased it. She gives each character their own personality and makes you feel like you are part of the Yada Yada Group.
I am in a prayer group and I can identify with this group of ladies
Throughout the book, Jodi really didn't have much to pray about but a the end, she needed her friend more than ever.
She has a wonderful voice that draws you into the story,
I like the name.
I've heard many good stories about these books and the first lived up to the hype. I have already purchased book 2.
Flo, so believable. Love her lines - very funny
Each character sounds unique
Would have to take the whole group, individually they wouldn't be interesting
Couldn't stop listening. Great story! Awesome, skilled, entertaining narrator. Interesting characters. Buying the series!!!!
Enjoying one good listen after the next!
Unlikely companions and similarly, unlikely circumstances make this book. The plot moves along briskly, bringing all the YaDa's together in the end, and the backstory on each character makes for fun listening. God does indeed move in mysterious ways! Although I like the story and characters, I am uncertain that I'll try more in the series out of fear that their adventures therein will become contrived.
Barbara Rosenblatt's exceptional versatility as a narrator is what makes this mediocre novel a worthwhile listening experience and the only reason I rated it 4 stars. Ms. Rosenblatt has been one of my favorite narrators for many years. In this novel, her amazing ability to create the voices of more than 12 female and male characters of different races and of various nationalities within those races is simply stunning and the only reason I persevered listening to the end of the novel. Had I been reading it in the printed version, I would not have finished this novel.
