Product Description

Forty-five year old Kathleen Salerno decides that with a husband who works all the time and a daughter in college, a change of scenery is just what she needs. When her husband takes a three-month filming job in New Zealand, Kathleen steels herself for an Australian adventure. Unfortunately, she finds herself spending most of her time alone in a small bungalow with no clothes drier or car! Determined to get rid of her self-pity, Kathleen starts exploring, only to find a best friend in another Californian native in New Zealand. With so much in common, the two women explore their new habitat together, and find that God has different plans for them than they had originally though. Robin Jones Gunn, softcover, 235 pages.

Publisher's Description

Kathleen joins her husband for a three-month trip to New Zealand when he’s hired by a film studio in Wellington. Leaving behind all that is familiar in her comfortable corner in Southern California, she realizes that the past twenty years have been so tightly woven into the life of her only daughter that she’s not sure who she is on her own or with her husband. In her isolation, Kathleen begins to contemplate reinventing herself, but before her crazy schemes take flight, she meets Jill at the Chocolate Fish café. Even though the two women are very different at first glance, they find they share a common Sisterchick heart and instantly forge a friendship that takes them on a journey where both Kathleen and Jill find that God has returned to them the truest part of themselves that was set aside so many years ago.

Topsy-Turvy Down Under

SISTERCHICK TM n.: a friend who shares the deepest wonders of your heart, loves you like a sister, and provides a reality check when you’re being a brat.

When Kathleen and her husband, Tony, pack up and fly off to New Zealand for Tony’s three-month film job, Kathleen discovers more than her geography has flip-flopped. In the land down under, comfort food comes in a jar labeled "Vegemite," gardens sprout hobbit statues, and, if you’re not careful, you just might venture into the Chocolate Fish café with feathers in your hair.

Of course, the feathers could open up a conversation with fellow diner Jill, also a California girl and an instant SISTERCHICK. Together they take in a performance at the Sydney Opera House; hold "hands" with a mama kangaroo and greet her in-pocket joey; watch dolphins surf the New Zealand waves; and discover that, in a topsy-turvy land where "Bob’s your uncle" is a statement that actually makes sense, one’s heart is likely to fall head over heels into a deeper sense of God’s love.

Story Behind the Book

"My motivation for the Sisterchicks™ books came from being involved with so many women who get halfway through life and shipwreck their faith or their families in search of themselves. I wanted to write a book that extols faithfulness and shines the light on God’s plan for a woman’s life, which is always more gigantic and more mysterious than she ever first believed. On the edge of my heart sits a constant prayer for the reader who lifts the covers of these books and snuggles in for a cozy read. My prayer is that she will be filled with hope and will come closer than ever to the One who loves to sprinkle His wonders over our days."

From the Trade Paperback edition.


“Robin Jones Gunn makes traversing midlife seem almost welcoming because she has that rare gift of communicating hope amid trial and inner chaos. Robin has found an effective mode of gently lending some instruction to women who sometimes feel overwrought and undone by life’s unexpected curves. Women and older teens will relish Sisterchicks Down Under. Who says growing older can’t be fun if you have a friend to share the journey?” -

    This review was written for Sisterchicks Down Under!.
    Just like all the other Sisterchick books I have read, and this is the last - it was wonderful, refreshing and fun. And in the midst of the fun and frivolity, there were many times when God was lifted up and honored. Kathleen & Jill showed me parts of New Zealand and Sydney, Australia in this terrific story. Their friendship is enviable - the kind we all wish to have. I hated to put it down, and was sorry when it was over! This is truly a delightful book and I recommend it with all my heart! One of the things I love about these books is that there are always Biblical lessons to be learned. In this case, Jill's anger towards the person she feels caused her husband's death was dealt with. I can't praise it enough - great book!! The fact that Ronin Gunn has traveled to these countries make them so much more authentic. Treat yourself, and try them all!!!

    I would recommend this book to adults and teens alike.

    I completed the book because I usually stick with a book to the end, but I wouldn't recommend this book. Am, however, donating it to a homeless shelter.

    I love this book. It made me laugh to the point of tears, and made me cry. I have not read any of the Sisterchick books before. I will be reading them when they are discounted from now on though.
