I did not enjoy this book. I am in a Christian Fiction book club, and when the members reviewed the book as a group, non one would recommend this book to a reader. It took all of us over 100 pages to get into the book. We did not understand how it was rated "Novel of the Year".

See Yourself in This Life Changing Page Turner!

Heather Curridge is going crazy; at least that is what her husband Jace, son Will and her friends seem to think. And at times Heather thinks so too. On the outside Heather seems to have it all, a loving doctor husband, a great fifteen year old son, a house by the lake and things, possessions but all of a sudden Heather starts questioning why she puts her husband through all her spending, spending, spending. Up till now she?s justified it well saying she likes to help people but really it?s just a way to move up to more, more, and more and the big question as to why she needs so much.. Jace tries to work hard to pay for it all but he?s wearing down and wants to go back to his life?s dream which he feels he can?t tell Heather about. Than one night Heather crashes her big Suburban on the way home from yet another St Matthews? dinner for the private school she insisted Will attend, and makes her way to the home of Annie and Liza ninety some year old sisters. Heather finds being with them having a calming effect upon her as well as questioning her walk with God. While Jace is out of town and Will stays with his grandparents Heather spends a few weeks with the ladies who are Quakers, and comes in close contact with an inner city nun and the people living there. Heather begins to come to terms with so many things her past, her dad, the possessions and the rat race of life. Christy award winning author Lisa Samson does an amazing job with Quaker Summer, her first novel with WestBow but her nineteenth overall. A definite 5 plus wow factor as you?ll find yourself within the pages of this page turner that you won?t be able to put down. The story unwinds and is so real you?ll think you are Heather or she?s your best friend, an awesome character we all can relate to. Voted 2007?s Women of Faith?s Novel of the Year tells you how amazing this book is ( Women of Faith is an organization dedicated to encouraging women of all ages to grow in faith and spiritual maturity with Christ ). There is even a reading group guide in the back of the book as this book would be perfect for reading groups. You?ll love the mixture of everyday life with the Bible and how each section ties in with the Beatles such as ?Fool on the Hill? and ?the Long and Winding Road?, even if you don?t know who the Beatles are you?ll catch the comparison. Actually the style of writing puts the reader in mind of the writings of Erma Bombeck, an awesome writer of the seventies. A must read for adult women, especially those who question life and God. So come on an amazing journey and give this book a chance, listen to God and your heart it will really set you free!
