Sometimes you have to go a little bit crazy to discover the life you were meant to live.
Heather Curridge is coming unhinged. And people are starting to notice. What's wrong with a woman who has everything--a mansion on a lake, a loving son, a heart-surgeon husband--yet still feels miserable inside?
When Heather spends the summer with two ancient Quaker sisters and a crusty nun running a downtown homeless shelter, she finds herself at a crossroads. Life turns upside down for Heather in a Quaker Summer.
One of the most powerful voices in Christian fiction, Samson delivers a staggering examination of the Christian conscience.

I enjoyed this one so much that I immediately purchased three or four other Samson books. While this was a fun and enjoyable read, God used this book to convict me in several areas of my life. The book was very well written, and compelling enough that I did not want to put it down.
Connie1 Stars Out Of 5August 22, 2010ConnieThis was a strange book . I had a hard time getting into this book. I made myself finish this book. I dont like writing bad things about a book but this one was a hard book to get into. although through this womens eyes we see that she has everything she wants and then more. She buys things she dont need but throughout this book she is never satisified. You can feel her hurt but when she meets Quakers sister and the nin her life changes. Its not about her anymore and she learns to care about others and realize money dont make you happy in life. I was not thrilled over this book.
Janus Tuttle5 Stars Out Of 5August 18, 2010Janus TuttleI didn't think at first I was going to enjoy this book, but I found I could not put it down. It made me realize, through this woman's life, that the nice things a person may have in their home, all of the things we all take for granted, are exactly what she said, "STUFF". I think it would make rich and not so rich feel exactly the same, and realize that it is all just STUFF!!! We actually have more to give if we would just do what she did!!! Clear out the STUFF!!!We can also learn from this book that we should not judge a person by the nice home, nice clothing, ability to buy whatever they wish does not fulfill our lives. Sometimes the less fortunate end up being the most fortunate!!!
