Jackson’s most recent novel is “Someone Else’s Love Story.” The dust jacket blurb describes “Someone Else’s Love Story” as a “funny, charming, and poignant novel about science and miracles, secrets and truths, faith and forgiveness; about falling in love and learning that things aren’t always what they seem – or what we hope they will be.”
