Item Description...

When Heather Reeves wrecks her Suburban outside Baltimore, Maryland, two Quaker spinsters come to her rescue. Inspired by their radical lives, Heather experiences a summer of awakening and grace. A Women of Faith

Publishers Description

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."

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.

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!
