Walking the Woods and the Water

In 1933, the eighteen year old Patrick Leigh Fermor set out in a pair of hobnailed boots to chance and charm his way across Europe, like a tramp, a pilgrim or a wandering scholar. The books he later wrote about this walk, A Time of Gifts, Between the Woods and the Water, and the posthumous The Broken Road are a half-remembered, half-reimagined journey through cultures now extinct, landscapes irrevocably altered by the traumas of the twentieth century. Aged eighteen, Nick Hunt read A Time of Gifts and dreamed of following in Fermor's footsteps.In 2011 he began his own great trudge - on foot all the way to Istanbul. He walked across Europe through eight countries, following two major rivers and crossing three mountain ranges. Using Fermor's books as his only travel guide, he trekked some 2,500 miles through Holland, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey. His aim? To have an old-fashioned adventure. To slow down and linger in a world where we pass by so much, so fast. To discover for himself what remained of hospitality, kindness to strangers, freedom, wildness, adventure, the mysterious, the unknown, the deeper currents of myth and story that still flow beneath Europe's surface.

'Robin makes every reader feel like a sister chick... sit back and enjoy the ride'! - Karen Kingsbury, America's No. 1 Novelist and Bestselling Author of The Above The Line Series “Grab your passport and expect to be swept away on another adventure of heart and hope. Robin Gunn's writing is picturesque, like Monet–except she paints with words. It's a story I can’t wait to share with my own Sisterchicks!” –Tricia Goyer, author of Blue Like Play Dough and Every Sunrise “Sisterchicks in Wooden Shoes will transport readers to the land of tulips, windmills, and Corrie Ten Boom. This delightful story tickles the funny bone while tugging on the heartstrings. Well done, Robin!” –Janice Thompson, author of Fools Rush In “A sweet and familiar blend of emotions weave through this story–delight in friendships, courage to face the unknown, and the passion to savor each moment. A page-turner that sings of faith, forgiveness, God’s comfort, and security to overcome today’s fear and confidence to face our tomorrows.” –Janet Perez Eckles, international speaker and author of Trials of Today, Treasures for Tomorrow “Robin Jones Gunn once again wrapped life-changing truths in a delightful story of adventure and humor that confirmed that I, like Summer in the story, can do all things through Christ and through the love and support of Sisterchicks in my life.” –Karen O’Connor, author of two best-selling series Gettin' Old Ain't For Wimps and Help, Lord! I'm Having a Senior Moment “ Sisterchicks in Wooden Shoes is much more than another entertaining installment in Robin Jones Gunn’s wildly popular series. It’s a reminder of what a blessed gift true and lasting friendship is.” –Sharon K. Souza, author of Lying on Sunday “ Sisterchicks in Wooden Shoes is a heartwarming tale of two women whose lives are woven together with the golden thread of friendship. The special bond these Sisterchicks share resonates in our souls as they bestow God’s blessings on one another in the midst of life’s difficult circumstances. In the beauty of the tulip fields, the wonderful stinky cheese shop, the windmills and canals, Holland comes alive in the pages of this book.” –Virginia Smith, author of Age before Beauty and the Sister-to-Sister Series “Good nacht! Robin Jones Gunn does it again! Run–don’t walk–to get this latest hilarious installment of the Sisterchicks series!” –Cyndy Salzmann, author of Crime & Clutter and Dying to Decorate “I want to be a Sisterchick!

You and your Sisterchicks will love taking this new adventure together!” Karen Kingsbury, New York Times best-selling author of Between Sundays and Ever After “My only complaint about Robin’s latest is that now I want to hop a plane to England! But combine a cup of Earl Grey tea and this charming story and you’re halfway there. Another delightful tale about women helping women to live their lives to the fullest.” Melody Carlson, author of These Boots Weren’t Made for Walking and A Mile in My Flip-Flops “Funny, touching, and true to life, Sisterchicks Do the Hula! will have you doing the hula (and loving it!) by the last page. Grab your grass skirt, girlfriend–this is one trip you don’t want to miss! Robin Jones Gunn is the perfect tour guide for this joy-filled Hawaiian adventure.
