Product Description

Kate Montaung watched "home" slip away again and again--through her parents' divorce, a foreclosure, two international moves, ten rental homes in ten years, and her mother's terminal battler with cancer. Add in the challenge of a cross-cultural marriage, and Kate was constantly adapting to a new environment. When home is supposed to be synonymous with love and comfort and safety, unpredictable and unwelcome life events--even the chosen but challenging ones--can shake you to your core.

Journey with Kate to two continents--North America and Africa--as she faces one of life's great mysteries: no matter where we go or what we do, this world is not our home.

Publisher's Description

A Place to Land is a globe-spanning memoir that wrestles with the question, "Where is my home?" Kate Motaung watched "home" slip away again and again—through her parents’ divorce, a foreclosure, two international moves, ten rental homes in ten years, and her mother’s terminal battle with cancer.  Add in the challenge of a cross-cultural marriage, and Kate was constantly adapting to a new environment. Through her experiences, you’ll realize—as she did—that no matter where we go or what we do, this world is not our home.

Author Bio

Kate Motaung has written for iBelieve, (in)Courage, Ungrind, Thriving Family, and Crosswalk. An American who spent ten years living in South Africa, she expresses the challenges and blessings that come with being emotionally tied to two continents. She blogs at katemotaung.com.

Editorial Reviews

"This book will make you homesick for places you’ve never been. But more than that, it will make you homesick for the people you love. Michigan and Cape Town are full-bodied characters in this story. But this book is about how going home sometimes looks like uprooting ourselves from everything familiar in order to make our home in the heart of someone else. It is a hard journey. But as Kate so tenderly teaches, it is the truest happy ending."

"The best memoirs either pull the reader into the author’s compelling story or draw the author’s universal truths into the reader’s story. A Place to Land deftly manages both. Despite the many challenges she faces, Kate presses on, urging us by example to do the same. In the end, her thoughtful conclusions about longing and belonging may well become our own."

"We have all experienced home as longing and loss. Can we find hope in our seasons of suffering? A Place to Land confidently answers yes, lifting our eyes beyond this fragile, temporary life to a better world to come."

"Kate Motaung draws us into the spacious place of God’s never-ending love. Into a place where we can land, forever."

"A Place to Land will be an inspiration to anyone who is wrestling with God through life’s unexpected losses."

"As a missionary kid, I always felt like I'd never quite found my place. Kate understands the tension of being pulled in several directions, bearing the burden of loved ones from thousands of miles away. A Place to Land is more than an honest memoir—it’s a hopeful narrative of a home lost and found, and a gentle reminder of our Companion all along the way."

"Every one of us was created with a yearning for a place to call home, a place to belong and to rest. And yet, as Kate so beautifully writes in this book, our sufferings force us to come to terms with the truth that we will never fully be at home in this world. Let Kate’s story break your heart, and then let the truth that pours out of these pages settle into your soul—that only eternal life with Christ will forever satisfy your deepest needs for belonging and home."

"A Place to Land is a page turner. I found myself swept up in her story. Honest and authentic, Kate brings the reader into the highs and lows of life and the hope found with and in Christ. Her vulnerable writing lifted my eyes and recalibrated my heart to long for home."

"I’ve heard it said believers are so heavenly minded they’re of no earthly good. Kate’s compelling story proves the opposite. It’s exactly because she’s learned to take the long view—living with eternity in mind—that her impact in this world is so startlingly powerful. This is Kate’s story, but it’s yours and mine too."

    The meaning of "home"

    A Place to Land is a heartfelt story about change, loss, hope, and transformation. It will challenge the way you think about home and encourage you to cling to the promise of an eternal home with Jesus. I recommend this book to anyone who loves to hear about Gods work in peoples lives, and anyone who wonders what home really means.

    (Note: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.)

    Kate Motaung's memoir is a story of God's grace throughout the events of her life.

    She has a relationship with God that grows through her college years and motivates her to pursue missions. She was unaware of the great challenges she would face in the ensuing years. As she tells her story she takes the reader along with her from Michigan to South Africa.

    This author shares her moments of struggle and doubt. A thread of brokenness runs through the book--we live in a broken world. We all experience some brokenness in our families. But there is hope.

    Throughout the book Kate writes about painful life experiences but notes the provisions of God's grace. God provided for her during the difficult months of her mother's battle with cancer. God provided for her mother's needs. The book has a wonderful tone of Christian community--people helping and supporting each other.

    I enjoyed reading about South Africa and the friendships that developed. Kate shares vignettes from her marriage, childbirth, beginning motherhood and adoption.

    Within the memoir I was impacted by the legacy of faith that Kate's mother gave to her daughters. A beautiful portrait of a mother's love.

    The major themes of this memoir are faith, community and hope. It is a testimony of God's faithfulness and points to the future Jesus promised. The memoir is a good read--it will broaden your perspective.
