    One thought on “Lucy Come Home (A Yada Yada Journey of Hope)”

    1. Wow! So much more than the cover implies, the back cover description did not do this book justice at all. I was taken away in the early 1940's before WWII broke out and people were still recovering from the Great Depression. Times were tough, and Cindy Tucker finds out just how hard life can be when the death of her boss sends her off with the kind young man from the traveling carnival. The tale is interwoven with another from the present day, about Cindy, now Lucy, a homeless woman who happens [...]

    2. Have you ever wondered how it is that someone became homeless, wandering the streets, seemingly with few connections to others? Lucy Come Home is a book that explores how Lucy, one of my favorite characters from the Yada Yada House of Hope series, came to wander the streets of Chicago and live a life of homelessness, and it is a well-written book indeed! Dave and Neta Jackson have penned a novel that is bittersweet, interspersing flash-backs of Lucy's teen years and the loss of her family and be [...]

    3. Lucinda Tucker and her family live the lives of Migrant workersnce they lost their farm in the Dust Bowl. While on their way to pick beets, a carnival pulls into the town with them. Fate is set and Lucinda meets Bo.We follow Lucy [Cindy] from a fifteen year old girl through to eighty years of age. This is a long book, but a compelling read. You will want a box of tissues handyere are a lot of highs and lows. Through out the book you find God's hand leading their lives.What a turn of events, and [...]

    4. The last third of this book had me on an emotional roller coaster. Lucy's story made my heart ache. This was a good read I would suggest to those having trouble with letting God's light shine into the dark corners of their life.

    5. Ever since I was a young child, I have always been fascinated by the world of the people who work in carnivals and the rough life it must be, always traveling and never being in the same place twice. A homeless existence if you will. In the novel, Lucy Come Home by Dave and Neta Jackson, we get a different view of that homeless existence as the world of Lucy Tucker is paralleled between two different time periods in her life, one from her childhood and one later in life, more current.The book op [...]

    6. Lucy Comes Home by Dave and Neta JacksonWow, what a wonderful heartwarming story about Lucy Tucker. We learn about Lucy’s life by the flashbacks she has of her life starting in the 1940’s and her life as it is now. We see how she handled the very difficult situations she was forced to be in, and how she is handling life today and a homeless woman. Her live was definitely not the best life from the beginning. Lucy lives in the Manna House Shelter, and seems to like it there just fine. I reall [...]

    7. For fans of the Yada Yada series and its spin offs you are in for a complete treat with this one! If you’ve not read that series don’t worry, you can still enjoy this story as a stand-alone. You won’t have all the background that will make the story richer, but it will still be an excellent read. If I could make the decision for you I’d say read them all in order. Dave and Neta Jackson are master storytellers and you won’t be disappointed you took the time to meet all of the characters [...]

    8. Now we know the rest of the story. Not only Lucy's childhood but her early years as well as what was happening during her disappearances in the recent books. Lucy has an interesting story and I'm so glad Neta has given us this look into her life.Lucy and her carnie boyfriend run away after her boss is murdered. They leave family behind and don't look back. It's a really sad story considering they didn't have to run at all. The things they go through are heartwrenching.If you've read the Yada Yad [...]

    9. Fifteen-year-old Cindy Tucker (later known as Lucy Tucker) and her migrant worker parents and six siblings had moved to Michigan in the early 1940s to work the sugar beet fields, as the dust bowl years had claimed their farm. It was a hard life with little pay, if any, if the field boss, Buster Doyle, had his way. But Buster took a liking to Cindy and had her help with his pregnant wife and the commissary.While in Michigan, Cindy met James Bodeen (aka “Bo”), who worked at his father’s Bode [...]

    11. Okay so here was my first response after finishing this book (posted as my FB status):"Wow, I am wrung out from the emotions of this book. Tears are pouring. my throat aches and my heart is full. I need a break. I did finish it and it was good, but wow. I'm still not sure why it affected me this way, but I will NEVER look at a homeless person the same way again."I am not really sure why I couldn't stop crying, even later when I was trying to explain to my teen daughters what happened in the book [...]

    16. While it is true that this is historical and it is a Christian book, I have to admit that I was quite disappointed in it. The story is very depressing--that makes it realistic, I guess. The romance is almost nonexistent. And I found absolutely no humor in it. It seems as though it was a myriad of missed opportunities that left me feeling quite unfilled.I will admit that I found Lucy and Bo fairly delightful characters. I enjoyed the story between the two of them quite a bit. I felt for them each [...]

    17. I got hooked on Neta’s books when I read the Yada Yada series and while some authors fail to keep their audiences entertained and wrapped up in the story, Dave and Neta do not fail. In Lucy Come Home I was wrapped up in the book until I finished it, there were some surprising twists at the end and even a moment when I wanted to wring Lucy’s neck to get her to come to her senses, and that is what makes a good book. I felt like I knew the Sisters in the book, like they were old friends, althou [...]

    18. I loved, loved this book! I enjoy reading a story that centers on one person and follows her life for a long period of time. Lucy Come Home (A Yada Yada Journey of Hope) by Dave and Neta Jackson, follows Lucinda Tucker for the time that she is called Cindy to when she was 80 and called Lucy.Cindy is a migrant worker at the beginning of the book. Her family had lost so much previously from the Dust Bowl and later she turns up on the streets as a homeless lady. Her story really spoke to me. She ha [...]

    19. What a gem this book turned out to be, let me say it's been a while since I had the privlege to review such a thought provoking work of fiction that was such a touching read. I warn you if you're the type that cries over an emotional read you may want to have a box of tissues beside you just in case.I was very impressed with the way that the husband ad wife author team laid out their story. It was seemlessly written and I felt as though I was actually in the story watching it all play out. I rea [...]

    20. Lucy has been on the streets for a very long time. She values her independence and resilience, but is approaching very old age.

Over the course of time, Lucy finds herself more and more displaced. She encounters some very bad situations that she must flee from and tries to make a home, however unstable, where and [...]

    21. I was entranced while reading Lucy Come Home by Dave and Neta Jackson. I can't wait to share it with Granny M. She will really love reading this on our big ol front porch. That is her favorite place to read. It was wonderful to not only read the current story of Lucy but also her back story to understand how she became ensnared into her life. It made me thing of the paths I have taken. Looking back I wonder if I could pick and choose then which ones would I have avoided. Then if changing one of [...]

Bo and her run from Michigan.The book goes back and forth from the past to the present and we see Cindy / Lucy as [...]

    23. Until reading this book for some reason I had always thought Lucy Tucker was black. I liked how the Jacksons alternated between Lucy's past and present, joining the two when she's reunited with her family after 60+ years. Normally when authors do that I get confused or lost and can't follow what's going on. This time everything was fluid and smooth. It was like two parallel roads that eventually intersected at the end.Always love a good spinoff of a series. You see what you read in another book [...]

    24. If you're a fan of the Yadda Yadda books, you will definitely want to pick up Lucy Come Home, the first in a new series.

From a teenager, to widow, homeless and carnivals, Lucy Come Home is filled with hope, tragedy, inspiration and God's love.

    25. This is a story of what is, what was and what might have been. Be prepared to cry. You just never know why that bag lady is living on the streets.I really don’t know what to say.

She’s spent so many years on the street that going home feels frightening and claustrophobic.Besides, she has a secret that [...]

    26. I loved this book! Of course I love anything by Neta Jackson. My only complaint is that it jumped between past and present with no real rhyme or reason and sometimes that threw me off. This book tells the story of Lucy and how she came to be homeless on the streets of Chicago. What a hard life she led! I loved how Neta snuck in references to the characters from her previous books that I love so much.

    27. I absolutely loved this book, was up late finishing it! This is a sister book to the series Yada Yada House of Hope that I read. Lucy is one of the main characters from that series, but you can read this book as a stand alone also. I love these authors, they really make you feel like you have known these people in real life.

    28. I loved this book. It's kind of a follow-up to Neta Jackson's Hose of Hope series,-which I'd also highly recommend. Even though it's fiction, kind of opened my mind to be more accepting of some of the "crazy" homeless people. It really touched me.

    29. Wow! I have had this book downloaded for awhile and just decided to read it this weekend. GREAT backstory about Lucy's life - the elderly homeless lady from some of Jackson's previous books. Told how Lucy wound up living on the streets. Outstanding!!
