Ah, Robin. Last week, I read from her Glenbrooke series, and this week, I read from her Sisterchicks series. Once again, I found that Robin spoke to my heart in this book. What a talented lady!
Sisterchicks in Gondolas is part of the Sisterchicks series. What is a sisterchick, you might wonder? A sisterchick is defined as “a friend who shares the deepest wonders of your heart, loves you like a sister, and provides a reality check when you’re being a brat.” Don’t we all need one of those special friends? I know I do, and I know exactly who my sisterchicks are. Do you?
This story is of sisterchicks Jenna and Sue. Both are in their late 40s, and wondering if their lives have any adventures left for them. When Jenna is invited to Venice to cook for a missionary retreat, she invites Sue along for the ride.
Adventures abound in Italy, whether they are attempting to speak Italian, sampling varieties of gelato, purchasing fresh bread and groceries for their cooking endeavors, or exploring the nooks and alleys of Venice. Jenna and Sue soon discover that they are not done yet, because God is not done yet.
Sisterchicks in Gondola was a delightful read. First, this book has me thanking God for the sisterchicks I have in my life. Second, it has renewed my longing to visit Italy. Third, this book made me laugh, think and pray.
Not only do I recommend Echoes, but I also recommend Sisterchicks in Gondolas. Reading both of these books in such close sequence reminded me again how much I enjoy reading Robin Jones Gunn. I am confident you would enjoy her books, too.
Please note that I received a free copy of this book from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
