A robbery, a lynching, and a mourning mother shake up the Yada Yadas.

I had never felt so violated! The Yada Yada Prayer Group was "gettin' down" with God in prayer and praise one night when a heroin-crazed woman barged into my house, demanded our valuables, and threatened us with a 10-inch knife--a knife that drew blood.

We wondered if we'd ever get back to normal after this terrifying experience. I assumed we would. After all, we'd started praying together at the Chicago Women's Conference last spring, and we'd been through a lot already as spiritual sisters. This was just one more hurdle to conquer, right?

But then a well-meaning gesture suddenly incited a backlash of anger in the group, forcing us to confront generations of racial division, pain, and distrust--and stretching our friendship to the limit. And a shocking confrontation in my third-grade classroom forced me to face my own accountability and learn what true forgiveness really is.

The Yada Yada Prayer Group seems invincibleùuntil tension and distrust shake its very foundation.

Jodi Baxter is slowly recuperating from a horrific car accident, but before sheÆs fully recovered, other problems arise within the Yada Yada Prayer Groupùbig problems. The turmoil starts when a heroin-addicted woman charges into a prayer meeting with a knife and isnÆt afraid to use it.

Things really take a turn for the worse when grim accusations are made against JodiÆs husband. Racial division, pain, and pride are tearing this close-knit group of women apart, and Jodi isnÆt sure if she and her spiritual sisters will be able to survive the mess.

The Yada Yadas are forced to get down to the nitty-gritty in their relationships and in their prayers. But is forgiveness possibleùnot just of their closest friends . . . but also of their enemies?
