Gabby has had a rough time recently. Her husband has betrayed her, locked her out of the penthouse they shared with their sons, and their marriage has ended. Lost, confused, and lonely, Gabby determines that she will make the best of her unhappy situation, and she throws her energy into the shelter where she works. Almost six months go by, and Gabby opens House of Hope, a homeless shelter for women and children. Just as things are getting off the ground with the new shelter, her husband re-enters the picture and needs her help. He has been badly beaten, and Gabby is torn helping the father of her children, and still feeling hurt over his betrayal.
Despite their past, can Gabby learn to help and trust her husband again? Is she willing to forgive him and take him back? And how much has her understanding of her relationship with God changed? This is the story told in Who Is My Shelter?, alongside other stories of women in the shelter Gabby runs.
This book is the fourth and final installment in the House of Hope series by the author of the popular Yada Yada Prayer Group series. I confess this was the first book from either series that I’ve read. I probably could have understood and enjoyed it more had I been familiar with the other books and recurring characters, but as it is, the story is clear and explained enough to work as a stand-alone. I would recommended starting at least from the beginning of this series for this enjoyable and satisfying story.
