I've been a big fan of the Sisterchicks books by Robin Jones Gunn since I read the very first one. While I'm a huge mystery/suspense fan, these books are light, fun "chick lit" perfect for a break from heavier reading. I was very excited recently to get the latest release, Sisterchicks in Wooden Shoes, to review.
The latest book in the series shares the adventures of two long-time pen pals who finally get to meet face to face. Summer has raised a family of six and juggled all the challenges that her busy life has thrown her way, but an abnormal result on a routine test throws her life into turmoil. She decides to make the long dreamed about trip to the Netherlands to meet her friend Noelle. As the two friends share a week of adventures, they learn to find God in the small, everyday moments and to trust Him with the big and small challenges.
Robin makes each location she writes about in the Sisterchicks book come alive, and this one is no exception! Although I had never really thought about traveling to the Netherlands before, I would now love to go. From stories of Corrie ten Boom's home to the tulip fields to the famous artwork, she makes it sound like an amazing place to be. I would deinintely recommend this book, especially to anyone who loves to travel - or those who only dream of it.
