Sisterchicks In Wooden Shoes by Robin Jones Gunn {GIVEAWAY at bottom of post}


Book Description:  A multi-tasking mama, Summer Finley has found ways to handle whatever life throws at her with grace and a grin. Until now, that is. An “abnormal” medical test result sends Summer into an emotional tailspin and prompts her to fulfill a life-long dream of “meeting” her best friend and pen pal since fourth grade, Noelle Van Zandt, face-to-face. 

Their blissful week together in the Netherlands finds Summer and Noelle floating down a canal in Amsterdam, visiting Corrie Ten Boom’s Hiding Place, sipping decadent Dutch cocoa in Delft, and bobbing merrily along through a sea of brilliant, spring-fresh tulips. Each day takes them further from midlife anxiety and closer to trusting God in deeper ways. 

When Summer finally confides in Noelle about the abnormal test results, Summer’s honesty prompts Noelle to share a long-held heartache. The two friends find they both needed to be together more than either of them realized. Could it be this adventure was tucked away in God’s imagination long before Summer bought her ticket to fly to the land of merry tulips and kalomping wooden shoes?
My Review:  Sisterchicks In Wooden Shoes is probably one of my all time favorite books!  Of course, I absolutely (and I do mean absolutely!)  love all of the Sisterchick books.  The escapades and adventures of the friends or sisters makes one want to grab a suitcase, load up the travel arrangements with your sisterchick and have an adventure of your own.  Sisterchicks In Wooden Shoes is an easy, light read but there are many truths throughout the stories.  
I guess this book would be a favorite because the "girls" go on a trip to Holland.  Not only are there tulips and wooden shoes but the story ties into Corrie ten Boom and her family.  If you've ever seen the movie, "The Hiding Place" which tells the story of Corrie ten Boom and her family during the Nazi regime then you may cry through this chapter as I did. Even though I'm not a crier my nature but this chapter in this story truly touched my heart and the tears just flowed...I had one of those "eye opening" moments where the Lord helped me to "see" beyond the story. 
Summer and Noelle are two sisterchicks after my own heart.  They both love chocolate!  But more than that they both love the Lord!  
 If you want to go on a trip but don't have the time or finances right now then go to Amazon.com and get this book. Reading this book is actually better than a trip---no packing or passport.  
Women of all ages will enjoy this 5 star read!   Readers  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.
