Publisher's Description

Sharon has lived calmly in Chinook Springs, Washington, her entire life. All that changes when her best friend of twenty years, Penny, takes an impulsive trip to seek out her only living relatives in Finland -- and brings Sharon with her. The land of reindeer and saunas holds infinite varieties of zaniness for these two unlikely friends -- Sharon is a quiet mother of four and Penny was a motorcycle mama before she came to Christ -- who return home with a new view of God, a new zest for life, and a big impact on those around them for decades to come.

Get set for adventure as the sisterchicks drive, float, or fly off to faraway places—exploring new territory and delighting in the soul ties that forever bind their hearts.

Sisterchick 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.

Meet unlikely best friends Sharon, quiet mother of four, and Penny, former flower child/motorcycle mama. Connected as young moms, their twenty-year friendship is about to take a surprising leap! Penny hatches plans for a "post-kids" trip to seek out her only living relatives—somewhere in far-off Finland.

Oh, Penny Girl, what have you done?

The land of reindeer, Finnish saunas, and starry, starry nights holds infinite promise for the free-flying sisterchicks, who feel their hearts fill with a new zest for living…and a fresh view of the One who flung the galaxies across the heavens!

    This review was written for Sisterchicks on the Loose.
    Have you ever been surprised by the contents of a book?

    Recently, I experienced that very thing.

    Having previously loved RobinJones Gunn's Clouds, I was eager to see what else she had written. When the first of her Sisterchicks books came up on my list of available books on Blogging for Books, I couldn't resist the temptation to try another of her novels.

    The surprises began with the cover. Blue sky and snow, with a bright orange strip of foreign buildings . . . just the hint of adventure I needed to sneak Sisterchickson the Loose! up my ever-growing list of books to read. Plus, the cute little chick in the top left corner with the snazzy sunglasses made me giggle with joy. *Note: When I was browsing at the book store over the weekend, I noticed this book had a different cover than the copy I had. Don't let that stop you from taking on this adventure!

    Upon opening the cover, I discovered the story was written in the first person. Quite startling, since the "norm" for fiction is currently third person writing. I've read a few first person fictions before, and they usually took me several chapters to get into the rhythm of them, if I ever did. Much to my delight, the story swiftly unfolded as if told by a dear friend. This negated the first person problems I'd had in the past. In fact, as I was reading, I felt as if I were reading the authors private, intimate thoughts on her own journey to Finland. I'm not sure how much of the tale was based on Ms. Gunn's personal experiences, but she sure painted an enjoyable tale with plenty of adventure, misunderstandings, hilariousness and sweetly tender moments.

    Finally, I was surprised to discover a deep character arc that could easily apply to so many women's lives. (Men's, too, for that matter.) Many of us struggle with identity issues at some point or another in our lives. This book provides hope and a bit of guidance where our identities are concerned. It's nice to see such deep thoughts woven seamlessly into a whim of an adventure.

    In Sisterchicks on the Loose!, Penny tells her best friend Sharon, "Pack your bags, girl! We're finally going to run away from home!" They take off for far away Finland in hopes of reuniting with the aunt Penny's always wanted to meet. Mishaps seem to appear from every direction, but they decide to trust God and let Him lead the way on this long-awaited journey. Both women have lessons to learn along the way, along with surprises to give and receive. The people they meet on the trip only add to the experience, enhancing the already enjoyable excursion across the globe. Will they miss home or wish they could travel indefinitely? After going on such an exciting trip, how can they ever go back to normal living? Make sure to pick up this Sisterchick novel if you have a bit of the wanderlust in you. It'll get you itching to board a plane—but don't forget your carry-on!

    Sisterchicks on the Loose! by Robin Jones Gunn reminds me so much of the relationship that I have with my best friend. Penny is willing to let her hair down in order to experience life and have a great time. Sharon is more like me, reserved and a home body.

    When Penny thinks that her life might be coming to an end (because he mother died at a young age) she plans this trip to Finland in order to find her only living family - an aunt and few cousins. Little did she know that she would find a "real family".

    This book is very cute and a nice light read. The characters are very likable, fun and well developed. I enjoyed the spiritualness that was written into the book. I would most definitely recommend this to all my readers.

    Whenever I see the word "chick" in a book title, I usually head in the opposite direction since I am truly a tomboy. (The last book I read was a Western about a Ladies Shooting Club by Susan Davis.) From many women, I've heard that Robin Jones Gunn is a good author, so I figured that I would check out a book by her from the library, to see if I liked it (before I would consider buying it). I was pleasantly surprised by this book.

    Sharon is the quiet shy homemaker & mother while Penny is the out-going, adventurous real estate agent. Despite many mishap and detours along the way, Penny & Sharon head to Finland for the vacation of a lifetime. Penny's only surviving family lives in Finland and she wants to connect with them as well as visit the country of her ancestors. Penny brings her best friend Sharon along for the incredible ride. Don't miss out on their fabulous adventure.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Robin Jones Gunn
Submitted: January 20, 2003

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I've been writing stories for almost twenty years and have to admit that some of my favorite characters have become "real" imaginary friends. I think about them and wonder how they're doing long after the book is finished. That's probably why many characters make guest star appearances in new projects. I'm sure some of them will show up in the Sisterchick novels! My husband and I recently celebrated our 25th anniversary with much joy. Our son and daughter are nearly grown and both of them are doing great. God has been gracious to us. I feel like we're living under a canopy of His mercy and His mystery.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I decided to write this novel when I noticed how many women were sending me letters saying they loved reading about the friendships between the women characters in the Glenbrooke and Christy Miller Series. For a long time I'd been wanting to write a few novels based loosely on travel adventures I've shared over the years with close friends. Those are the times we laughed the longest, prayed the hardest and came home changed the most. The idea for "Sisterchicks on the Loose!" came from a trip my best friend, Donna, and I took to Finland almost ten years ago. Would you like to see a picture of the two of us in downtown Helsinki with shopping bags filled with souvenirs and chocolate? Then please come for a visit at www.sisterchicks.com

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Sisterchick 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
