Barbara Rosenblat's talents are well utilized in this entry in Jackson's series, which stands well on its own. A group of ethnically diverse women makes up this Chicago prayer group, which is facing the challenges of a hate crime, the early parole of one woman, and the marriage of another. All the women (and men) are convincingly portrayed by Rosenblat, including the secondary characters. Her rendition of the frequent prayers is heartfelt, and her musical talents are delightful as she sings the story's hymns. Rosenblat is warm, real, and in the moment as she imbues the narration with her own spirit along with that of the prayer group--a powerful combination.
