Accidentally sneaking into a private party, discovering Melanie's allergies to mango (or is it guava?), and a heroic act on Joanne's part, the duo find themselves driving across the desert in a Jeep with no roof. Sharing a dinner of tortillas and cactus and a night in a single bed with a Spanish woman teaches them to count their blessings. The sisters run into a cop who doesn't speak English and a doctor who is surprisingly single. Then, after enjoying a few days in the 'silver sci-fi' trailer, complete with hammock and four-foot stuffed marlin, they drive back to the other side of the Baja Peninsela and finish the trip with an on-board cake decorating contest.
*END OF SPOILERS*
All through their trip, God seems to be working in the sisters' lives. Joanne is opening up to the dreams God might have for her and Dr. Matthew, while Melanie must learn to stop running from and start running to God. The sisters learn to count their blessings and let God, not their plans or dreams, reign over their lives.
This book is full of laughter and lessons, and a few kooky characters. All in all, I give this book the full five stars.
