Kerry is charmed by the beautiful South Pacific island as she arrives for her first long-awaited missionary assignment. Even though it's a less than glamorous secretarial position, she is enthusiastic about contributing to the work. She soon develops friendships with the other missionaries, especially with a young Bible translator who becomes her closest confidante. But as she gets to know them better, she is dismayed to find that many are struggling with frustrations and disappointments which make their lives and relationships stressful. She had prepared herself for a life of privation and sacrifice, but hadn't expected the challenges that she faces in her teammates. At times it appears that they are more likely to be defeated by themselves than by any outside enemy. Can God accomplish his purposes in spite of all their failings?

About Susan C Foy
Susan Foy grew up in Bear, Delaware, the middle of five children and one of a set of identical twins. She started writing stories at the age of nine, and always enjoyed using her imagination to create new characters and situations. She graduated from the University of Delaware with a degree in English literature. Susan started writing novels in her mid-thirties at the encouragement of her twin sister, who said, "Write something for me, and I'll read it." Her books, both historical and contemporary, center on women's relationships and always contain a romance at some point in the story, although the stories are not all about romance. She hopes her readers will find her stories entertaining and uplifting. Susan and her husband Jim have raised four children and still live in Bear. They are active in their local church and enjoy vacations and holidays with Susan's large extended family.
