Becca Thornton, one of these frazzled, but energetic women, decides to start a weekly group for her friends and to call it The Bunko Babes. This group works to bring a night of fun into their hectic lives, but soon evolves into a spiritual journey of discovery and renewal. They turn to each other in the midst of terrible trials and uplift one another to overcome their odds.
I appreciated the realistic problems these women faced. One deals with addiction while another deals with infidelity. Many of the other women struggle with equally difficult and modern day issues, but learn that they can find strength and faith through their relationships with each other and with God. It is not heavy handed evangelism, but more a natural sharing of what the gospel message stands for in regard to support, love, belief, self-sacrifice, and true joy.
This book easily reaches out to any woman who has turned to her girlfriends for help. I believe a reader of any age could appreciate this story, although those under 13 might relate less to some of the characters struggles. A great story, The Bunko Babes is sure to encourage readers as it weaves a memorable tale of love and renewal. -- Heather Schultz, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
