It’s not often that I say, “This book changed my life,” but in the case of Quaker Summer, I shout it with a hearty amen. Samson weaves a compelling, surprising, faith-awakening story with the deft skill of a writing artisan. Her characters practically materialize in the room when you’re reading, wooing you to consider their lives, struggles and questions. Samson puts a human face on consumerism, compelling the reader to consider Jesus’ radical call, but she does so with candor and grace. A highly recommended book.
