begins just five months after Hip to Be Square ends. Mari is content in her new old life at Golden Horizons and her dating life. Her dear friend Sadie has turned from blissed-out engaged girl to a frantic fiancée as each month ushers her closer to the altar. Meanwhile, Mari, Caitlin, and Angelica are dealing with their own emotions tied to tying the knot. They all have opinions about the institution of marriage, Sadie’s wedding plans, how to handle the visiting ex-wife and stepchild, and, of course, the look of the bridesmaid dresses. Is it possible that their classy, stylish friend has been color blinded by love?
Altar Call is a fun, insightful look at how a wedding…even someone else’s…can turn rational women into strange creatures. On a deeper level, this story is about how, when we live by faith, we worry so much about whether we are doing the right thing…that we forget to trust our faith and our hearts. And in the end, our way to happiness is rarely about choosing an absolute good path verses and absolute bad path. It is about making choices and trusting God in the process.
