Heather Curridge has it all, and she loves her stuff. But every year she thinks there must be more to life--she must be made for more than this.

Heather is coming unhinged, and people are starting to notice. What's wrong with a woman who has everything, and yet still feels miserable inside?

Yet when Heather wrecks her Suburban and spends the summer with two Quaker spinsters and a crusty nun in a downtown homeless shelter, she suddenly finds herself at a crossroads.

Sometimes you have to go a little bit crazy to find the life you were meant to live.

Reviews - What do customers think about Quaker Summer (Women of Faith Fiction) (2007 Novel of the Year)?

Disappointment  Aug 19, 2008
With all the wonderful reviews of this book and the fact that it was awarded Women of Faith Novel of the Year, I had high hopes. However, I was sadly disappointed. This book was SO slow! I have better things that I could be doing and other books I could be reading without wasting my time on a book that seems to go nowhere.
Great SUMMER Read  Jun 23, 2008
I hardly ever read fiction, but this one intrigued me. I heard it was life-changing for many readers, but since my life was in a ministry transition as it is, I simply related. It's about life, stuff and purpose. It asks questions we all need to find answers for. It made me laugh and cry. It made me more ready to serve the sick, not just hang out with the healthy. I liked the title and it made for a relaxing summer read.
An Amazing Book  Jun 2, 2008
Lisa Samson has quickly become one of my all-time favorite authors. In this book, Heather, the main character, is a well-to-do shopaholic with a terrific kid and married to a handsome surgeon who is nuts about her. She lives in a house that most people only dream of, furnished with the best of everything. On the surface, life is grand. But are all the `things' merely anesthetic for a pain too deep to be faced? In order to find the peace to move ahead, she must confront her own shameful past. To do that, she finds help from some unlikely sources - among them a nun, and a couple of ancient Quaker women.

Quaker Summer is one of those books that captivates you so deeply and draws you into the story so masterfully that you can't put it down. It changed the way I think - about a lot of things. It's beautifully written, and full of so much wisdom I wanted to grab my highlighter as I read. I challenge you to read this book and not come away changed. It's never preachy (I detest preachy books), but the message is powerful and profound. Samson spins a wonderful tale with strength and skill.
quaker summer  Mar 9, 2008
I thought it was an excellent book for our book club as it had many thought provoking episodes to recall.
Amazing!  Feb 27, 2008
This book is among the best I've ever read! Samson's characters are real, down to their doubts and spending habits. This book is not only entertaining, it is convicting. If you want a book that will open your eyes and change your life, read this one!
