This was a great book about finding yourself and spiritual growth.

I've never been in the position that Summer was placed in. Hearing that you have an abnormal test result is probably a very scary situation. I would imagine that all the things you've never done seems to spread themselves out like a list of life's failures. But for Summer that seemed to be just what she needed.

The writing wasn't great but the characters, while a bit two-dimensional, were very real to me. The spiritual and introspective thoughts that Summer has were also very real. It is also very apparent the Robin Jones Gunn put a lot of research into the book. The places that Summer and Noelle visit are real places with real stories.

Through all of the inner turmoil Summer faces she's able to keep her head held high and just enjoy her visit. The humorous stories enter at just the right time, keeping what could have been a very serious and emotional story very light-hearted. This made the story touching and at the same time easy to read. I personally find most stories about a serious subject, such as serious illness, very hard to read emotionally. They just seem to drain me, and while the stories may be good they take a lot out of me. This story deals with a very serious topic in a way that makes it enjoyable. The story isn't so much about what Summer is going through, but rather it's just about her living her life and enjoying herself.

Overall it was a pretty good book. A bit of chick-lit mixed with a story of spirituality. It was a very fast read. It also made me want to read more of the Sisterchicks novels.

LOVED IT! Fun, deep, and I learned a lot from the book. Makes me want to go to The Netherlands now. I did look up the Rijksmuseum to view some of the paintings they referred to. Very enjoyable.

Another great book by Robin Jones Gunn. This book is set in the Netherlands with a couple more sisterchicks on a fun-filled, spiritually uplifting journey. As always, Robin points out the beauty in every day life and reminds us to thank God for the little things. She also entertains and makes the reader laugh out loud. If you need a vacation from everyday life, pick up this book and go on a sisterchick adventure!
