"I don't think I had ever felt I had been shown grace before. Now I knew grace was being extended to me. What made it different this time was that I was ready to reach out and take hold of the grace being offered."-Jenna in Sisterchicks in Gondolas
This is my second time reading this book. I am not sure if I have ever read one of the books in the Sisterchicks series more than once, but I am so glad I chose to do it with this one. Sisterchicks in Gondolas is another in the Sisterchicks series by author Robin Jones Gunn. This particular novel is set in Venice, Italy and is the story of Jenna and her sister-in-law Sue and the adventures of God's grace they experience while on a trip to Italy. Given the opportunity to work as chefs for a men's retreat, the ladies experience the riches of Venice while experiences some of the riches God has in Him.
I alway love reading the Sisterchicks novels. I have read them all but one, and they always bless me. I come away feeling refreshed, just like I had been on the adventure with them. The novels feel like the breath of God warming the soul. Author Robin Jones Gunn is one of those writers that God has so blessed with the ability to be able to convey His presence, love, and empowering grace in the form of fiction.
I recommend Sisterchicks in Gondolas to all women who want to be refreshed by the presence of God and go on an adventure. This book reinforces the importance of the bonds between women and the beauty of how God works in friendships. You will be blessed each time you pick up a novel in the Sisterchicks series.
Many blesses to you as you read!
"He restores my soul."-Psalm 23:3
