A fresh start?

Katie Weldon catches more than just the bouquet at the wedding of her best friend, Christy Miller. She also snags a job offer that launches her into an adventure she never imagined.

Katie eagerly accepts the job as resident assistant at Rancho Corona University, only to find herself in a community of conflict. She thought this was where God wanted her, but how can God use her-and love her-when everything is falling apart? Especially when it comes to her boyfriend, Rick.

Katie turns to the women in her life for solace, including Christy. In the safety of their love and encouragement she finally allows herself to spill her heart about her relationship with Rick. But even their advice can't postpone the decision Katie must face, a decision that will define who she is and the woman she's becoming.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved This! Katie was always one of my favorite characters in the Christy Miller series, and with the release of the Christy and Todd the Married Years series, and Christy and Todd the Baby Years series, I decided it was finally time to pick up the Katie Weldon ones. I was definitely not disappointed in the first book, and I loved getting to be back in with the forever friends. Katie learns a lot of hard lessons in Peculiar Treasures about her faith, trust, and relationships, and I can't wait to see where the rest of the series leads to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Series I absolutely love all of Robin Jones Gunn's novels. I started with the Christy Miller series and when I finished that I started the Katie Weldon series. I felt like I was in the novel it felt so real. Great pre-teen book for every girl. I recommend reading the whole series. It will feel like your apart of the novel. Amazing author.

Editorial Reviews

'Katie Weldon is just finishing her junior year at Bible College. As she juggles finals, maid-of-honor duties at her best friend's wedding, work, and an almost-romance with her boss, she finds herself contemplating other big questions, such as whether to take a resident advisor position her senior year, and what to do about her undeclared major. Gunn has been writing about Katie and her friends for years, most notably in the popular Christy Miller series, and this is first in Gunn's Katie Weldon series. Katie's dilemmas may seem like the stuff of unabashedly light fiction, but they aren't without gravity and intrigue. Gunn is adept at denuding light fiction of its usual tics -- mediocre prose, clichéd characters, and predictable plots -- and imbuing it with the hallmarks of literary fiction. The characters are multidimensional and ring true at nearly every turn. The dialogue that ensues is at once heartbreaking and utterly familiar to anyone who has ever been in Katie's shoes. Moreover, Katie's religious faith never feels sentimentalized or tacked on, but is integrated beautifully into the charming plot.'
