Book Description: Sharon has lived calmly in Chinook Springs, Washington, her entire life. All that changes when her best friend of twenty years, Penny, takes an impulsive trip to seek out her only living relatives in Finland -- and brings Sharon with her. The land of reindeer and saunas holds infinite varieties of zaniness for these two unlikely friends -- Sharon is a quiet mother of four and Penny was a motorcycle mama before she came to Christ -- who return home with a new view of God, a new zest for life, and a big impact on those around them for decades to come.
My Thoughts: Sisterchicks on the Loose is the first sisterchick book written by Robin Jones Gunn. Even though this isn't a series there are eight books, I believe, all about friends and sisters who have these incredible God given/appointed trips.
I absolutely love ALL of the Sisterchick books. But Sisterchicks On the Loose is one of my all time favorites!
Sharon and her friend, Penny, have been best friends for twenty years. Penny has the savvy and business attitude; whereas, Sharon is more of the homemaker/dime store type of girl. In fact, this story begins on such a funny note as we find Sharon highlighting her own hair (like a lot of moms who want to save money do). . . .ah! Helsinki or Bust!
But when Penny FedX's Sharon a thick envelope with a ticket to Helsinki, Finland...the dream trip of both women.
This is a fantabulous read! The seriousness of Penny finding and visiting her Finnish aunt and uncle and the outlandish visit to the country with two old women! And finding God's graciousness and peace in Finland!
OH!Such!A! GREAT read!
If you love a great read with nuggets of God's love poured into the written word then you must read the Sisterchicks on the Loose!
