Sisterchicks In Wooden Shoes by Robin Jones Gunn

I thoroughly enjoyed this book: Refreshing, realistic, and full of humor. This is a wonderful summer beach read. This is the first book by Robin Jones Gunn that I have read but I fully intend to read the rest of the Sisterchicks books. I also plan to pass on this book to one of my sisterchicks. (****see blog contest below) Another feature of this spectacular book is that it takes you on a short tour of Holland including churches, museums, and some famous Dutch people. Get the book, I promise you’ll enjoy it.

Here is the publisher’s summary and Author Bio:
Summary: When a mammogram result comes back abnormal, midlife mama Summer Finley makes a snap decision to relegate fear to the back burner and fulfill a lifelong dream. Summer heads for Holland where she meets up with tulips, wooden shoes, and her best friend, Noelle.
Pen pals since fourth grade, Summer and Noelle have never met face-to-face. Through decades of heart-level correspondence, they have sustained a deep friendship. A week of adventure helps both women trade anxiety for a renewed and deeper trust in God. When Summer confides in Noelle about the abnormal medical report, Noelle finds the freedom to share a long-held heartache, and both women discover they needed each other more than they realized.
Author Bio: Robin Jones Gunn is the best-selling and award-winning author of over seventy books, including the Glenbrooke, Christy Miller, Sierra Jensen, Katie Weldon, and Christy and Todd: The College Years teen series. The Sisterchicks® series has sold more than 300,000 units, bringing her total sales to more than 3.5 million books worldwide. A Christy Award winner, Robin is a popular speaker, both at home and abroad, and is frequently interviewed on radio and on television.
