Summary

The women of Sensible Shoes are navigating both deep joy and devastating loss. Can they find equilibrium in the midst of all that has changed? 

Mara: While faced with the turmoil of divorce and chaos at home, she is also listening for a call to serve others with courage and creativity. 

Hannah: As she grieves the twin losses of her dear friend and her Chicago ministry position, she also begins to embrace the joys and challenges of a new marriage. 

Charissa: Overwhelmed by her pregnancy and the demands of her teaching schedule, she is in need of even more grace for herself and others. 

Becca: Bereft and filled with regrets, can she find hope for the future and a way home? 

In this final installment of the Sensible Shoes series, you're invited to travel with these beloved friends as they endure trials that test their trust and their willingness to walk an extra mile.

Brilliant story and performance

I’ve listened to this set twice. It’s thought provoking and very enjoyable. The read dialogue is excellent and I didn’t get bored with it at all. Very enjoyable story.

One of my favourites of the series

I found the third book quite heavy going and had a bit of a break from the series, I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to read the final book initially but so glad I did! Enjoyed all 4 perspectives and found how the series finished satisfying. Great series, great final book.

Thought provoking, a healing journey

Loved it as it ends with new beginnings.
Would highly recommend listening to this book after the first books of the series first. There is something for everyone, even a man, to better understand our relationship with God and how answers to prayers are often not what we expect. Or how silence can be an answer to prayer.
Very well read.

Awesome story.

The 4th in the Sensible Shoes story. A great story of the faith journey of 4 women with nothing in common, becoming the the best of friends through their journey to a more intimate relationship with God.

Loved it so much I’m going back to reread them and do the study guides. Which I didn’t even realize existed until I finished reading the 2nd book!

I wish it wasn’t the end…

Ever want a story not to end…
Does it?
So much rich relationship, faith, growth and learning. Not a time I did not listen or listen again that it did not speak to my spirit, my life.

Thanks you Sharon.

Inspiring and insighful!

I enjoyed all of the Sensible Shoes books, and wished there were more. The devotional side of the book would be great to explore with a group, or alone.
