A lot can happen when a comfortable American lifestyle is purposely disrupted. The author was a middle-aged, conservative, Christian, Midwestern mom who embarked on an unexpected journey when she questioned her faith, left suburbia and moved across the world in search of a transformative spirituality. Along with her husband and their five kids, she sold everything that wouldn’t fit into a suitcase and bought seven one-way tickets to South Africa. This wonderful book is a collection of super short stories that chronicle the embarrassing and hilarious glimpses into the adventure of leaving everything behind in a quest to discover wonder, justice, and a God who defies definition.

"This is one of the funniest and most moving books about South Africa that I have looked at for a long time. The richness of our experience of life here is vividly caught in the observations of a stranger who can hardly believe she has found the likes of us. The people of Ocean View, many of whom were forcibly removed from their homes in other parts of Cape Town during the apartheid era, immeasurably enriched the author’s life; and the author has returned the favour with her gentle, wry, and indisputably enriching descriptions of the humanity that resides within us all."
