True confession time: I read Sisterchicks in Wooden Shoes by Robin Gunn and it’s my first Sisterchicks book. Before you pelt me with all the titles in the series, let me say that I was absolutely delighted. While I usually go for more literary novels, Robin’s command of fiction and down-to-earth characters helped me dispel my own erroneous theory that non-literary fiction must be shallow and uninteresting. Not! I was thoroughly entertained, and I’m in awe of the skill with which “message” is conveyed. No preaching or shallow characters, in fact I dare you not to be swept up by the story, not to mention learn a thing or two about the Netherlands. Good work. I recommend 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.
