No I am not referring to me:)  Just kidding, cause I am certainly not sweet.  I have one more book review for you, but since I am only about 4 chapters in to the book it isn’t much of a review.  That is where short and sweet comes in.  However I have read other Sisterchicks books and loved them and this one seems to be just as great.  If you like a good read and you haven’t read anything by Robin Jones Gunn, then you have missed out, seriously!

I do love her stuff.  So check out the info below and go pick up a copy:)  I hope to be done with it soon b/c our two trips to the pool this week were so uneventful that I think I may actually get to read a bit while at the pool.  We will see how the beach goes tomorrow.  I have a feeling that will be another story:)  At least I can work out and read while doing the elliptical.  Ah I do love running while reading!

Book: Sisterchicks In Wooden Shoes

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.

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.
