Sister Chicks in Wooden Shoes by Robin Jones Gunn is a sweet and compelling story of hope, healing and faith.
Pen pals since the fourth grade, Summer and Noelle have always been there for eachother, but they have never met in person. After an abnormal medical test result, Summer decides it's now or never!! She books a flight to the Netherlands to meet her best friend in person. Summer believes this is her chance to deny the test and fulfill a dream -- meeting her best friend face to face!
Noelle is excited about Summer's visit and they spend time doing the touristy stuff of visiting tulips and windmills and Amsterdam canals, but they also take a trip to Corrie ten Boom's Hiding Place. With each new adventure, they come closer to eachother, closer to God and closer to healing. As their week ends together, they find out that the trip was God-ordained so both could have healing and learn to trust God better than ever before.
