This new four-book fiction series sends Lily out to travel the world. As Lily enters the eighth grade, it9s time for her to venture beyond Cedar Hills Middle School and Burlington, New Jersey, to see how her newly learned spiritual/life lessons translate outside of America. As usual, God9s timing is perfect. Lily9s father, an English professor who has recently published a successful book on C.S. Lewis, has been invited to spend a year at Magdalen College at Oxford University as a visiting fellow. His family will go along. Between Dr. Robbins9 promotion and his royalties, the Robbins family is doing well financially, and they are anxious to share God9s blessings, so Lily9s mom, a high school PE teacher, has offered various missionaries her services to help them establish health/fitness programs for young people in their countries. Every other month during their year in England, Mrs. Robbins, Lily, and her brother, Joe, will travel to a different country and spend a month there. The kids are being home schooled, so they9ll have plenty of opportunities to meet kids of other nationalities and get into sufficient mischief with its accompanying life lessons. In her travels, Lily is secretly searching for how she9s supposed to "do the God-thing." She has a relationship with God, but the minute she arrives in Oxford, she realizes the possibilities for walking her spiritual path are far more varied than she9d ever dreamed. Lily experiences a chain of adventures that teach her how to make her relationship with God an adventure as well. The book will be peppered with letters from the Girlz-Reni, Zooey, Kresha, and Suzy.
