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.
Women ages 35 and up, readers of Christian Boomer Lit, and fans of books such as The Yada Yada Prayer Group will enjoy Robin Jones Gunn’s humorous and uplifting style. True-to-life characters and moments of poignancy bring a deeper understanding of the value of life and the gift of true friends. Readers guide and bonus material included.

While I haven't read this particular SC novel I have read some of the previous installments and enjoyed them immensely, despite not having quite made it to the 35 and up demographic mentioned in the book info above, so am looking forward to this one finding its way to the top of my TBR in the near future. In the meantime search for other blogs featuring this title. I will post my own review as soon as I am able to do so. Use the Title or Author's name to read more about the book on the Bookseller and author sites and to learn more about this author or click on the book title and author name links at the top of this post. Don't forget to drop by the Sisterchicks site as well. FYI for my Oregon reader buddies (if any of you catch this post) I heard a rumor that Robin along with a few other authors will be featured at a group signing at the Cedar Hills Christian Supply Store in Beaverton, OR on June 20th.
