"A cool adventure for two moms"
In 1982 in a church nursery in Chinook Springs, Washington,
best friends Penny and Sharon watch a vicious horde of
children including seven that belonged to the two moms.
Weary from the mental and physical stress of these youthful
activists, Penny and Sharon make a deal that when their
magnificent seven graduates they celebrate in Finland.
However, a few years later the deal appears dead when Penny
and her brood move to California.
In 1993, Penny sends Sharon a ticket that will send the
dynamic duo from San Francisco to London to Helsinki. The
supermoms are running away from home now that graduation
has occurred. With two West Coast sisterchicklet baby
boomers invading Europe, will the English and the Finns
survive and will American diplomacy (Clinton style) be
needed to calm the waters and snow that the daring duo dive
into as they go from one brash adventure into another.
This is a fun tale that feels like Lucy and Ethel taking
Europe in the 1990s, yet each one remembers why they were
and still are best friends while renewing their faith in
God. The key to the tale is the message that plenty of
life remains to enjoy for the over forty crowd without
Robin Jones Gunn preaching to the choir. Readers,
especially middle age, will appreciate these super
SISTERCHICKS ON THE LOOSE.
