Robin Jones Gunn knows the trick of making readers care about her characters. I'm a big fan of her work and have been since Junior High.
Exotic vacation spots, female friendship and inspirational messages are the theme of the Sisterchicks novels.
Sisterchicks in Gondolas is set in Venice. Jenna is asked to cook for a group on retreat and knows the task is too big to do alone. She decides to bring along Sue, her sister-in-law and friend.
Jenna and Sue are on an adventure that includes cooking for the retreat group, rating gelato flavors in the various shops they visit, exploring a hidden staircase that leads to a beautiful rooftop view, growing their friendship bit by bit and meeting God in the midst of it all.
Bubbling with Gunn's familar style, wise phrases and tender heart lessons leap of the page.
Jenna's struggles since her divorce and the challenges as a single parent surface in this beautiful setting. Meanwhile, Sue reflects on her husband's accident which changed both of their lives drastically and requires her to become her husband's caregiver. This role change causes her to wrestle with anger over the circumstances, shame for her feelings and confusion as to where God went.
Readers dealing with regrets, shame or concern about God's faithfulness will find themselves in this story.
