    Upon reading Marianne Irwin’s book, I found it to be entirely fascinating. Her writing is rich with detail about the culture, people and landscape of Nicaragua. Her colorful descriptions of the flowers, the houses,
    the mountains, the personalities of the people she met are written with great warmth and appreciation for
    life in a country very different from her own origin. She reveals her heart of faith, her quest for sharing God and True Parents, and the beauty of her mother’s heart toward all people. I am awed by the example Marianne shows us of living by faith even as such a young missionary. Then, when joined by her husband, Michael, in their new marriage relationship, they accept the challenges and sacrifice for God’s providence.

    Her book can be read over and over…and needs to be shared for Americans to also hear about the deceptions of socialism/communism that ensnare a society into losing their freedoms and control of their lives. The sorrows and poverty in their midst are an unforgettable experience for them and for the reader
    to hear. Out of this, Marianne has become a fine writer and storyteller, with future stories to tell of their subsequent missions in Russia and Jamaica.

    What fascinated me most reading this precious book from cover to cover is that Marianne and her husband Michael as well have made the very Best in the circumstances they were in. Their love for God, True Parents and their fellowmen moves my heart and shows that ordinary people can do extraordinary things. Truly a must read type of book.
