Everything's Coming Up Josey

Josey flees to Russia after her boyfriend jilts her and marries her sister, and her "best friend" announces his engagement. She goes as a missionary to teach them about God, but learns more about herself and her own relationship with God. Being in the Lord's work is nothing like she imagined in all her preparations. From her first encounter at the Moscow airport to the surprise at the bistro, Josey finds Russia much more than she expected. Susan takes the reader on a delightful ride around Moscow as seen through Josey's eyes. The secondary characters give added spice and depth as Josey copes with her friendships. As Josey grows and learns to lean on God, she finds the desires of heart where she least expects them. This is a fun read with great spiritual insight. Don't miss it.

Although Chicklit is not my favorite genre, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Josey reminds me so much of myself at her age. Yes, I can remember that far back. I laughed with her and cried with her through all of her adventures and encounters with a culture so very different from her own. Susan has done a wonderful job in taking us on a journey to Russia.
