I had so much fun reading this book!
Robin Jones Gunn tells the story of two lifelong friends who decide to spend their 40th birthdays, which are only a few days apart, together in Hawaii. It’s a trip they had talked about for 20 years and they figured it was about time they did it!
They leave their families at home and take off for the islands to enjoy two weeks of bliss.
It’s a wonderful story of friendship, love and learning. The two women are given the opportunity to renew their faith in God and the beautiful tropical setting helps remind them of His wonderful work with nature.
They also are able to come to terms with the fact they are now middle age. Turning 40 wasn’t something they thought would affect their outlook on life until it actually happened. However, each was glad to spend that particular birthday with a best friend who could understand the mixed feelings she was experiencing.
To top it off, they got to try some exciting new things … such as surfboarding, scuba diving and, of course, doing the hula!
This is truly a great book and I’d highly recommend it to my reading friends.
