Great book. A little different than other Christian Chick lit I've read but I really got wrapped up in the story. I loved following the women in the prayer group as well. It made me long for my own prayer group like theirs.

I thought the characters were to stereotypical in description and actions but really enjoyed the examples of worship and praying scripture that was portrayed. The growth of the main character was well done but her crisis of faith was grounded in seriously unrealistic occurance although it was well portrayed. Overall an easy read and enjoyable.

This is such an emotional story. It has characters that could be your next door neighbor. The stories are realistic and could hit close to home. It is a story of friendship, new experiences, and lifes scary parts.

This was recommended by a friend. . . Sorry. Didn't find it as engaging as I'd hoped. I would not order it again. I quit after half way through due to lack of interest.

Awesome book! Gave me a whole new perspective on prayer, and made me long to part of a prayer group just like the Yada Yadas.

Cute book that shows how everyone is different in this world, but we all love the same God. Makes you think about how we stereotype people. Good read, easy, enjoyable.

Interesting. An easy read. Not too deep. I loved the fact that it was set in Chicago and made reference to specific suburbs. It made it more personal since I live in a Chicago 'burb.

A group of women at a Christian Women's Conference are grouped into a prayer group. They agree to keep this prayer group active after the conference. This is a story of God working in their lives as they pray for and support each other.

A great Christian Fiction book, after reading it you will be encouraged to pray more. The story follows the life of the main character Jodi Baxter. Jodi learns about God's grace when she realizes she does need prayer. A great story with Christian ideas throughout and good character development.

I liked this book I'm not sure I would read any more in the series. I found some of it to hard to relate to.

This book was fun and a light read. However, the book also had a subtle way of getting me thinking about my prayer. I was challenged to pray in new ways and am having fun talking to God.

In addition, I was inspired to hold a woman's day retreat at my church. Thirty women signed up to read and discuss the book. I can't comment on the outcome because the retreat will be held in the Spring of 2014. What I can say is that the women are enjoying the book as much as I did.

A very good book to start the series. Though towards the middle it draws out just a little bit it really picks up towards the end and has you gripping the end of your seat. Be you a Christian or not, this is a good book to read.

This book was definitely different than any I had read before. It was very enlightening and heart warming to see the Christians from different cultures interact. The book was a bit long for my taste, but there was lots of territory to cover with so many members in the prayer group. Midway through the story I felt that this was the only book from the series that I wanted to read, but then by the end, I was wanting more and looking for the next book.

We read this in our church fiction book club. It was very reality based and dealt with real life issues.

Sorry, I only made it through the 5th chapter before dropping it back in the library bookdrop. I found the author's writing style as underdeveloped and the dialogue too unrealistic. For example, Avis invites her co-worker to a Women's Conference where she complains about attending the prayer group because it might keep her up past her bedtime. However, when Avis does decide to show up she ends up being the leading prayer! Other "churched" ladies have such bad attitudes that I just couldn't continue. Perhaps that turns out to be the point of the story...enough prayer can change the attitude?!

What do an ex-con, a former drug addict, a real estate broker, a college student, and a married mother of two have in common? Nothing, or so I thought. Who would have imagined that God would make a group as mismatched as ours the closest of friends?

While I'm not a religious person, I thought I would enjoy reading about the friendships made in this book. However, it was so slow-going that I could not get past chapter 10. I wish I hadn't wasted a PBS credit on it.
