Everything's Coming Up Josey

Overview

"I need you," the tall, good-looking missionary had said...but he'd been speaking to Josey's entire church at the time. Had she taken it too literally? Because she was no longer in Gull Lake, Minnesota. She was a missionary. In Russia. For a year.

True, Josey had wanted to skip town when her sister married her ex, and her secret crush/best friend got engaged. But Russia? Yet after a few weeks the idea grew on her. She could speak enough words to buy fruit at the Moscow market, and the missionary role was ...

Overview

"I need you," the tall, good-looking missionary had said...but he'd been speaking to Josey's entire church at the time. Had she taken it too literally? Because she was no longer in Gull Lake, Minnesota. She was a missionary. In Russia. For a year.

True, Josey had wanted to skip town when her sister married her ex, and her secret crush/best friend got engaged. But Russia? Yet after a few weeks the idea grew on her. She could speak enough words to buy fruit at the Moscow market, and the missionary role was feeling...right (although her bagel-thieving roommate tested her daily). Even the frosty Russian weather was no big deal for this Minnesota girl--it was getting her love life to thaw that was the real challenge!

    A good read

    This story is made unusual by it's setting in Russia and is more than a romance in that it deals with a variety of emotional issues we all face at some time in our lives. Add to it a spunky character determined to make it in life and it becomes an enjoyable book worthy of your time. I've read the preceding books about Josey with delight.

    Laugh out loud book!

    You'll laugh at Josey as you read about her adventures trying to become a missionary to Russia. Warren writes with a humorous and slightly self-deprecating style that is fun and easy to read. Highly recommended, especially great to give as a gift!

    The World According to Josey

    A delightful read in which the reader becomes acquainted with Josey who at the first of the book is going through some difficult times due to her sister marrying Josey's ex boyfriend. Josey is questioning how she should feel with her sister marrying her ex. Her best friend Chase is there at the wedding and tells Josey that she hasn't lost anything. Shortly after Josey hears a sermon that changes her life. One in which the missionary who is speaking is looking directly at her saying he needs her. She has an epiphany of sorts and realizes that is what she wants to do with her life. She wants to become a missionary. She tries this thought out on her family with some humorous results. This is Susan's first try with Chick Lit and I feel she has done a tremendous job. The book is well written and makes you think about your relationship with Jesus. Fasten your seat belt for a wonderful read.

    Everythings Coming Up Josey

    Are you looking for purpose? Significance? Josey is. I have been thinking a lot about purpose and priorities over the past couple of years and this book just hits the topic spot on. I loved traveling a winding road with Josey as she seeks to find answers to her and my/our basic life questions - 'Who am I ? And why am I here?' In Josey, Warren weaves us through the process that Josey takes as she discovers her own answers to these life questions. Josey leaves behind family and friends to follow her calling as a missionary teaching English to adult Russians in Moscow. Through heartbreaking rejection, baffling confusion, and unexpected betrayal Josey learns to take an honest assessment of herself and becomes enlightened with the truth that God not only loves her deeply but is working through her to change her from within to fulfill his purposes for her good and His glory - with many surprises along the way. I thoroughly enjoyed traveling with Josey as she lives the 'richness of life with a Savior watching her back and setting her course.' What a Savior! Starting with the Deep Haven Series I quickly became a Susan May Warren fan. Her writing style is amazingly versatile - from In Sheep's Clothing with its serious diabolical plot mixed with romance to the wittingly written word pictures in Josey that made me laugh out loud. I highly recommend this author and all of her books. Keep writing Susan.

    Hilarious Chick Lit

    If you like chick lit, you will love Susan¿s latest book. I was laughing out loud at Josey¿s misadventures as a first-year missionary. In fact, I think the chick lit format is appropriate for the subject matter, since, by it¿s very nature, a missionary¿s first year in a foreign country is such that if you don¿t laugh at it, you just might spend the year crying. Believe me, I know. I spent a year in Ukraine.------- Josey is a 24-year-old ready to jump at the chance to escape her life. Her sister/best friend just married Josey¿s ex-boyfriend, Josey has a dead-end, non-glamorous job at the local newspaper, and her best bud from grade school, middle and high school has a fiancé that looks like she spends five days a week in the gym. Yes, Josey needs a change¿a big one.------- But everyone is shocked when she announces she¿s going to Moscow to teach English. Even Josey can hardly believe it, but she discovers a lot about herself¿and God¿before she even leaves the States. Once in Russia, her complicated, three-ring circus of a love life, and her animal-print, tight mini-skirted roommate, all lead her to her knees praying for God¿s direction.------- This is a must read for chick lit lovers. Don¿t miss it! I highly recommend it, especially if you ever wondered what it¿s like to be a missionary.

    Everythings Coming Up Josey

    Everythings Coming Up Josey is a great book. I usually don't like books written in the first person, but this one was great. It was very funny and had realistic characters. Also if you like 'Lost' there are funny references to the show. Another great Susan May Warren book!

    Hilarious and moving

    For those of you who are hesitant to follow Susan May Warren into a different genre of Christian fiction, have no fear on that point. You will find everything between the covers of this novel that you've always expected from her and more. 'Everything's Coming Up Josey' is chicklit and one of the first of its kind that I have ever read. I was drawn in right away by the witty and clever first-person dialogue that Josey has with others and with herself. I found Josey to be a character that was real and accessible, didn't always speak in complete sentences, often did or said the 'wrong thing', and was able to show us that she had a past, but how she was brought to Jesus and has become a different person because of it. Josey's trials and hurdles that she endures as a one-year missionary to Russia and even before that (since we begin this chapter in her story at the wedding of Josey's ex-boyfriend to her younger sister!) are so very close to something that most women have gone through in one form or another that you can't help but empathize and feel a real kinship with her. After it all, Josey feels like a friend that you have in real life because she lets us see who she really is, even when she doesn't quite fully understand who that is all the time, as most of us don't. The storyline moves along quickly but never makes you feel as if you are outside of what's going on with her. Most of her experiences, either in her present time or as memories, are related to us sprinkled with such humor and feeling that you feel her embarassment, indignation, amusement, mortification or deep emotion when each is called for. On the whole, 'Everything's Coming Up Josey' was an engaging, fun read that I would recommend to anyone, whether you are acquainted with this author's other works or not

    Unbelievably cool!

    Wow! Move over Kristin Billerbeck! You need to share the spotlight with Susan May Warren. I had no idea until I read Everything's Coming Up Josey that there was an author out there who wrote chick lit as good as you do! I SO loved this story. It was SO unique and wonderful. A real joy to read! I smiled and laughed so much I think people began to wonder about me. I kept wanting to read sections to my husband--who, being a man, of course--didn't get it. This is one novel I could easily read twice. The love story was rich, the spiritual aspects were truly insightful and inspiring, and the humor was fantastic! I found myself turning the pages and wanting to read it every chance I got. I had a hard time putting this one down! Highly recommended. Now I have to go pull out the other books I have that Susan May Warren wrote. I had no idea she could wow me so much. And to make a missionary story into chick lit with such pizzaz that you want a sequel? Who'd a thunk it?
