From the author of the best-selling Christy Miller and SisterChicks series comes a new book of community, friendship, and tackling the hard things of life with God and loved ones around a table.

Five young moms, including beloved Gunn character Christy Miller, gather to share meals and soon become unlikely best friends. The regular gatherings provide opportunities for the women to reveal their stories, and those life stories endear them to each other. They experience their lives naturally meshing as they raise their children together in community. In Becoming Us the group find ways to challenge, encourage, and help each other become the nurturing mothers they wished they'd had when they were growing up. They unite to be remembered for what they do as moms and not for what was done to them.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/Waterbrook & Multnomah and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.

My Thoughts
I haven’t read a Gunn novel in quite some time. I am happy to say that reading this newest novel from her, was like a breath of fresh air. Meeting all her amazing characters, reading about their life stories, was like sitting down with long time friends, catching up on days gone by.

Real life situations make up the lives of these strong women. Situations that are beautifully woven into the story, making the reader feel every emotion that Gunn adds to the novel. Each page turn brought a message from God with it, and kept me up long into the night.

If you are looking for a wonderfully written, powerfully moving, captivating story, then grab this new release up from Robin Jones Gunn. Her beautifully chiseled characters mixed with heart warming lessons make this an unforgettable 4 star novel. I absolutely can not wait to see what book 2 has in store!
