Katherine knew she was called to Africa. She just wished she were as confident about her engagement to John.
Katherine Tierney had sown a "burlap sack of wild oats" in college. But, after making peace with God, she stuns her fiancé and family by answering a call to the mission field in Africa.
Set in 1990, Katherine serves for one year in far away Burkina Faso where she is welcomed into the tight knit community of missionaries. Adjusting to the rigors of bush living is tough, but Katherine's test comes in the quiet of her mud brick house where she is confronted by her past and learns to accept God's forgiveness.
When her fiancé visits for Christmas, he discovers a different person and their relationship is finally resolved. Katherine emerges from the mission field a new woman, confident in God's love.
