"Sisterchicks in Wooden Shoes"

Well, I did it...I read a "Sisterchicks" book!  I hadn't planned on it at all.  A few years ago, while browsing the library, my oldest daughter suggested I read them.  I, being an avid reader of historical fiction, graciously declined.  I may never have read one if I hadn't joined the Multanomah Press Book Blog Tour.  Now, I'm so glad I did.  Robin Jones Gunn took me on a trip back to The Netherlands.  Her descritptions of places I'd visited in the past were wonderfully accurate, and vivid.  I could almost smell the Dutch Hot Chocolate and feel the bracing spray of the North Sea surf.  What a treat to re-visit those memories.  And be taken to places I hadn't been, as well.

The story of the friendship of Noelle and Summer was like icing on an already delicious cake.  To journey with them on their discovery of the new and re-discovery of the old was delightful and inspiring.  The way Robin Jones Gunn weaves spiritual truth into the daily parts of life reminds me that I, too, need to be on the look out for God's hand at work in everyday situations, or, the "sacredness of everyday".  God truly does walk with us through every area of our lives.  

I look forward to getting caught up on the Sisterchicks series and I can't wait for her next installment!
