Publisher's Summary

Sometimes the person you most need is the one least like you. Kathryn Davies is a bright young woman form a prominent Phoenix family. But after making a leap of faith at a Christian music fest, dropping out of med school, and moving to inner city Chicago, her family all but disowns her.

When Kat discovers SouledOut Community Church, she longs to become a part of the multicultural church family. But her tendency to immediately say whatever she’s thinking steps on the toes of nearly everyone she meets—especially Avis Douglass.

Avis has a strong faith, is the principal of one of Chicago’s highest performing elementary schools, and is a founding member of SouledOut. But the country’s economic downturn has thrown both her and her husband’s jobs in question. And Avis hasn’t heard from her youngest daughter in months—an estrangement that gnaws at her every day. Where is God in this? Kat’s flamboyant zeal for living a “radical” Christian life is a stark contrast to Avis’s more reserved faith. But in God’s timing, the two women discover they need each other in ways neither of them expected.

Fantastic Story

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would definately change the lingo. Normal folk usually don't catch christian-eze speak. Gotta speak to everyone and not put yourself in a niche. Keep true, just round the edges a bit.

What did you like best about this story?

reconciliation

What three words best describe Jackie Schlicher’s voice?

way cool.

Was Stand by Me worth the listening time?

I believe so.

Any additional comments?

love the inner city portions, the reconciliation for the daughter's part could have been developed a bit more. Some parts were not written as well, if that makes sense.
