Ok...so I am going to be honest with all of my blogging friends, I did not read this book. I started to read it and then got busy getting ready to go out of town for a week or so and wasn't able to get back to it. In fact, I haven't read one word from any books since Friday and I usually read a book every day or so....
I did start the book and from the first few chapters that I've read I can tell you that I like the writing style and the development of the characters, and I think you will too. The book is called Sisterchicks in Wooden Shoes and can be purchased online from Random House for $13.99.
About the Book
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.
