Blog Tour & Giveaway: Sisterchicks in Wooden Shoes by Robin Jones Gunn

About Sisterchicks in Wooden Shoes:

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.

Women ages 35 and up, readers of Christian Boomer Lit, and fans of books such as The Yada Yada Prayer Group will enjoy Robin Jones Gunn’s humorous and uplifting style. True-to-life characters and moments of poignancy bring a deeper understanding of the value of life and the gift of true friends. Readers guide and bonus material included.

My thoughts:

I can always count on Robin Jones Gunn and her Sisterchicks novels to take me to amazing destinations I will never see (due to my overwhelming fondness for terra firma), and treat me with a story of sisterhood that not only entertains me but teaches me something.

Robin does such a wonderful job in this novel of describing the beauty of the places she takes her chicks - it makes it seem as if you've left your comfy reading chair to stroll through the intricate and beautiful tulip fields, feel the rush of emotions at the ten Boom Museum, and experience the much leisurely pace of the Netherlands right along with Summer and Noelle.

This is a wonderful book that is worth sharing with the ladies in your life. Enjoy!

I love the Sisterchicks, husband hates the giggling while he's sleeping next to me while I read them!! Loved Sisterchicks on the Loose because it reminded me of of my girlfriend (the one that held the baby for the lady on the airplane, that would be so Tammi)
