Special Guest Review from Sally (my mom!) of The Friendly Book Nook:
Robin Jones Gunn has another winner with Sisterchicks in Wooden Shoes. I sat and read this book in two days. What I love about these books is that I get to go on a quick, vicarious trip to places I may never go - the Netherlands being one of those places. Ms. Gunn not only takes us to visit the touristy sights, but we also visit the “spiritual” sites as well such as where Corrie ten Boon grew up. The trips usually involve two sisterchicks traveling together, but this time the main character, Summer, went to visit a penpal she had since the third grade. Now both were in their forties or early fifties and they are meeting for the first time. I love the history sneakily taught in these books, I love the scenery we can easily visualize, and I love the characters. They are gals I can relate to. I think these books would appeal to almost all women, especially those who are interested in travel.
