A Book in the Good Fight Series
Jerry Lincoln has a problem: his Sioux Falls IT consulting business has more work than one man can handle. Luckily, that means he can hire some help. Jerry just hopes his new employee, John Black Raven, ends up being more helpful than distracting—but John’s deep eyes and long hair are very distracting.
John came to town for an education and a chance at a life he couldn’t have on the reservation, but what’s important to him now is getting a job and keeping it. Six months ago, his sister died, and now her children are in foster care. Despite having the law on his side, John can’t get custody—can’t even see his niece and nephew.
As Jerry and John grow closer, John discovers he doesn’t have to struggle alone. Jerry helps him win visitation rights and provides much-needed support. Yet their victories aren’t without setbacks. Child Services is tangled up with money, politics, and red tape, and Native American children are their bread and butter. But John and Jerry are determined to fight the good fight and to win—in more ways than one.
My View – Story:
Overall, I enjoyed this story. It started out a bit rough for me. The relationship between the men moved a too fast for my taste and John’s quick outbursts of anger almost turned me off of the story. I was also concerned about the political nature of the subject matter. But as the story progressed, I became invested in the outcome and connected with the characters. I realized those elements I didn’t like at first were necessary to make the ending satisfying. This was a good story and touches on many issues that are prevalent in today’s society. I think the world needs more people like Jerry and maybe those issues would go away. I look forward to the next in this series.
My View – Narration:
I think the narrator did a great job with this story. His voices were unique for each character and he portrayed emotions very clearly. He did a great job with John’s anger.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
