‘Pound Foolish’ explores marriage in the face of uncertainty

pound foolishGreg Singer coordinates power boat shows for outdoorsmen, a job that puts stress on his marriage to Nicole who is a stay-at-home mom who homeschools their two children.  When the recession hits and Greg loses his job, their marriage is tested to the limits.  Greg has become infatuated with the new gospel their pastor is preaching and a new job selling an energy drink which he believes will bring the prosperity his pastor is preaching.  In the meantime, Nicole, disillusioned by her church and worried about her marriage, develops a relationship with a handsome lawyer who lives at the end of the block.

Marriage can be undermined when husbands and wives aren’t communication or don’t have the same goals.  Nicole wants security and to feel like she is an important part of Greg’s life.  Greg is looking for the kind of financial prosperity he hears preached from the pulpit each Sunday and believes this will give Nicole what she wants.  He doesn’t see how the way he is trying to provide for his family isn’t the proof of his love or the security Nicole needs or desires.

Neta and Dave Jackson have written more than 120 books.  “Pound Foolish” is book four in the Windy City Neighbors series and intersects with “Penny Wise“, book three of the series.  Each book has its own story line and can be read in any order.  The characters’ lives are intertwined and affect one another.  If you enjoy Christian fiction and heart-warming stories, you will love “Pound Foolish”.
