What kind of book do you need at 3 am when you can't sleep? What book have you read lately you can recommend to all your girlfriends? Sisterchicks in Wooden Shoes by Robin Jones Gunn fulfilled both of those needs last week... I absolutely devoured the book in 3 hours! It made me laugh and it made me cry, then it made me laugh all over again.
I could definitely relate to the main character of the book, Summer. Her entire life she has 'played it safe'. The story is about how God stretches her in order to deal with an area of her life she needs to surrender to Him.. I won't ruin the story by telling you more about her spiritual journey. The journey itself takes place when she visits her lifelong penpal, Noelle, in Holland.
Noelle is on a life journey as well (aren't we all?). The book draws us into her life and spirit, as she allows Gos to begin a new work in her as well.
I have told several ladies to read this book! I especially enjoyed the comraderie I felt with Christian women. It made me want to hug the neck of a fellow sisterchick!
I received this book free from WaterBrook Multnomah for agreeing to review this book!
