“[Lisa Samson is] a talented novelist who isn’t afraid to take risks.”—Publishers Weekly
Lisa Samson is the Christy-Award winning author of 19 books including the Women of Faith Novel of the Year Quaker Summer. She has been hailed as one of the most powerful voices in Christian fiction by Publishers Weekly. She lives in Kentucky with her husband and three kids, and spends every ounce of free time writing.
In Quaker Summer, Heather Curridge is a woman in crisis. Outwardly, her life seems serene: she has a remarkably successful husband, an adorable child, and the most beautiful home she could imagine. Inwardly, however, she is falling apart, overcome by the idea that her comfortable life is keeping her from God’s will. With the help of the church, her patient family, and her two best friends, Heather comes to some painful conclusions about her past and future. Heather can’t solve all of her problems, but she paints a wonderful portrait of a soul beckoned by God.
