Litfuse Review: Pound Foolish by:N. Jackson/D. Jackson
About the Book:
POUND FOOLISH Greg Singer coordinates consumer sports shows for powerboats, four wheelers, snowmobiles, and jet skis-macho toys for outdoor men like himself. But the job puts tremendous stress on his marriage with Nicole, who for the first time notices the handsome lawyer at the end of the block. "Greener pastures?" When the recession hits Greg's industry, he thinks the crisis is merely an opportunity for God to bless him with unmatched prosperity, a promise he hears preached each Sunday, and he steps out in bold faith . . . But is he being "pound foolish"?
The fourth in the Windy City Neighbors series, POUND FOOLISH explores the economic upheaval and uncertainties challenging every family. Intersecting with PENNY WISE (book three), the Jackson's employ the innovating storytelling technique of "parallel novels." Though each book follows its own drama and story arc, the characters' lives become intertwined and affect one another. Pound Foolish returns us to Beecham Street-a typical American neighborhood . . . where a growing friendship brings new meaning to prosperity.
Things get increasingly harder as each day passes in marriage and in life, this book is a prime example of how this is so substantially true these days. Every family has to meet these obligations daily and the stress eventually takes its tole on that family that is trying so hard to fit it all in. Greg and Nicole have issues that have let go for far too long and you can tell as it erodes their marriage. Soon Nicole starts to look elsewhere, sort of like she allows another to capture her attention. Soon the couple are forced into trusting God, will they survive it all?
The Jackson's will capture you in this their fourth book in the Windy City Neighbors series. The authors always write about real life scenarios and will capture your thought process every time because we in one way or another can connect to the characters. Always with strong story line and rich, full characters you will suddenly find yourself enraptured by their every word. If you would like to learn more, you can at this link.
