Narrator Lorna Raver assumes the role of a newly-married Christian missionary who follows her husband to 1938 New Guinea. Their plan to bring God’s message to a native pigmy people meets unimagined hurdles of disease, starvation, and war. Raver puts emotion and breadth in her voice, making it easy to believe we are hearing the author telling of her hardship and challenges. At every turn in the difficult journey, Rose reiterates her faith in God and the comfort she found in scripture. With aplomb Raver mimics Rose’s struggle to learn the difficult Indonesian tongues, also knowing just when to treat matters lightly and how to convey sadness and desperation. This memoir of such a proactive woman showcases an excellent model of leadership. J.A.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2009]
