Grambo: The True Adventures of an American Grandmother in Baghdad...and Beyond is the inspiring, faith-filled memoir chronicling the life of Evelyn Chriswell, a Pentecostal Christian who went to work as a civilian contractor in Iraq during some of the war s most turbulent early days. It is a gripping and insightful story which documents her life growing up in Louisiana, her early marriage to a fiery faith healer and their work as missionaries, and continues her journey of love and loss across the globe. Chriswell s life has been a tapestry of triumph and tragedy, but through it all, her faith sustains her. First and foremost, the author is a devout Christian whose perseverance and humor shines through every page. Though the backdrop is the Iraq war, the book at its essence is a touching love story between a man and a woman, and a woman and her Lord.
