When tragedy strikes, young Sara Calhoun flees Los Angeles, California, and all that is familiar, to join her uncle in Cameroon, Africa. Unknown to either, their paths cross in Paris. Thinking her uncle had traveled inland to visit a friend, Sara "follows" him into the war-torn heart of Africa. It is there that she comes under the protective care of the ancient and legendary missionary, Sam Vinton, Sr., and learns how to deal with her grief and the true meaning and purpose of life. Concerning the author: Lynne Warmouth's childhood dream was to be a missionary . . . to Kama, in the Republic of Congo. Four missionary families, evacuated from the Congo in the 1960 Rebellion came to Lynne's home church in Derby, Colorado. She grew to love each one of them, all their stories, and the people in their stories. While God had other plans for her, she never lost her love of the dream. This book communicates that love. Lynne is Mother of two, and countless others who claim her, and Grandmother to five plus many others who call her Grandma. She lives with her pastor/husband (of 40 years) in the parsonage on the hill above their church, and enjoys her scenic view of Riverside, Ca.
