Publisher's Description

Katie Weldon catches more than just the bouquet at the wedding of her best friend, Christy Miller. She also snags a job offer that launches her into an adventure she never imagined. Katie eagerly accepts the job as resident assistant at Rancho Corona University only to find herself in a community of conflict. She thought this was where God wanted her, but how can God use her—love her—when everything is falling apart? Especially with her boyfriend, Rick. Katie turns to the women in her life for solace. In the safety of their love and encouragement she finally allows herself to spill her heart about her relationship with Rick. But even their advice can’t postpone the decision Katie must face, a decision that will define who she is and the woman she’s becoming. The first book in the Katie Weldon Series, Peculiar Treasures follows Katie as she struggles to believe that God can love her, faults and all.

Over the past ten years Robin has been invited to speak at events around the US and Canada as well as in South America, Africa, Europe and Australia. Robin and her husband have two grown children and have been married for 35 years. They live in Hawaii where she continues to write and speak.  

 

Publisher's Weekly

Katie Weldon is just finishing her junior year at Bible College. As she juggles finals, maid-of-honor duties at her best friend's wedding, work and an almost-romance with her boss, she finds herself contemplating other big questions, such as whether to take a resident advisor position her senior year, and what to do about her undeclared major. Gunn has been writing about Katie and her friends for years, most notably in the popular Christy Miller series, and this is first in Gunn's Katie Weldon series. f Katie's dilemmas may seem like the stuff of unabashedly light fiction, but they aren't without gravity and intrigue. Gunn is adept at denuding light fiction of its usual tics—mediocre prose, clichéd characters and predictable plots—and imbuing it with the hallmarks of literary fiction. The characters are multidimensional and ring true at nearly every turn. The dialogue that ensues is at once heartbreaking and utterly familiar to anyone who has ever been in Katie's shoes. Moreover, Katie's religious faith never feels sentimentalized or tacked on, but is integrated beautifully into the charming plot. (Apr.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

    WOW! What an amazing book! I have not read the Christy Miller series or any other books by Robin Jones Gunn, but wow I am glad I found this book! It was amazing! I love how real Katie is and the God moments she has! Alot of the God moments she had made me think about my faith such as the hot on his heels theology and the peculiar treasures! Can't wait to finish the series and I definitely plan to read the Christy Miller series after this one!

    I love, love, love the Katie Weldon book series. I am currently reading the third book of this series and thoroughly enjoy it. I have read all of the Christy Miller and Sierra Jensen series that Robin Jones Gunn has written. This book is great, you will have to buy the whole series to get all the details going on with Katie. I love these books!!!

    No, I'm serious about giving this book 5 stars and here's why:One word: KATIE. This series brings to life a flat charater from the Christy Miller series and transforms her into a dynamic, passionate girl that we all can relate to. Katie Weldon is deep--she has real problems, a busy life, and real questions. She's down to earth, and as her almost-boyfriend calls her, "an open book."Yet, that is one of the reason why I love this book so much! Katie isn't afraid to speak her thoughts--she's REAL. She's especially honest with Rick. I love how the two of them can argue one moment, and sincerly make up the next. Rick is also a dynamic character. Yes, he's the reformed flirt, but that's the past. Now, he's a successful buisness man and is crazy about Katie. He might take their relationship awefully slow at times, but I think that's sweet! :) He respects Katie by keeping their relationship on a friendship level. One serious topic in this book is TRUST: complete trust. Katie has a hard time trusting Rick and it allowed me to evaluate how I trust the people around me.If you were a big fan of the Christy Miller series, you will love the Katie Weldon series! In my humble opinion, they are WAY better than Christy's or Sierra's. And the book leaves you very happy! A nice, satisfying read!

    I am a HUGE fan of the Christy Miller series, and I've also read the Sierra Jensen series, so I was excited when I found out that Robin Jones Gunn was starting this series. It's a great book, with a positive influence, making you question yourself as you learn from the characters. I would recommend it to other fans.

    I have read the Christy Miller Series, the Sierra Jensen series, and now the Katie Weldon series. I am in love with the books Robin Jones Gunn creates. I feel as if I'm a close friend of all the characters. My mother laughs at me when i talk about them, because i talk as if they are my own friend. The Katie books are one of favorites, because i love peculiar treasures. Me and my friends have begun calling ourselves that and crack up whenever someone hears and looks at us like we're nuts. Thank you Robin for all the amazing encouragements through your book. Your books are a true God-thing for me. Thank you again for all you do.
