I have developed a discerning taste for books. You see, I only have so much free time, so when I read for pleasure, I want the book to capture me and take me to another place, another time. Are you like this?
When I learned that Marcia Moston wrote a book about the calling God placed on her life, my ears perked up. Marcia Moston, you see, has a reputation for taking ordinary words and weaving them into a spell-binding story that sweeps you into another world with such swiftness and grace that you are unaware you left home.
Call of the Coward – The God of Moses and the Middle-Class Housewife is a riveting account of Ms. Moston, her husband and daughter heeding God’s call to leave their comfortable American life and minister to people in Guatemala.
I hoped Ms. Moston would find excitement and danger in her journey and I was not disappointed. Throughout their mountain-top stay, Ms. Moston’s vivid descriptions, especially of an overcrowded bus that traveled up and down a narrow mountain road with wheels that sometimes left the road and spun in mid-air, left me breathless.
The book ended before I was ready. For weeks afterward, thanks to Ms. Moston’s deft writing, I drifted back to Guatemala, savoring the people, the land, and the Moston family’s adventures. It’s a book worthy of your time.
