Description

So began the adventures of the 22-year-old Lorraine Scott as she set out from New Zealand, bound for Central Africa. There she would meet up with her fiancé, Maurice Harvey, and embark on a life that was utterly different from anything she had ever experienced.

This book tells that story. Depending not on memory, but on the 2,000 letters that she and Maurice wrote to their parents, Lorraine gives a fascinating insight into life in Africa in the 1960s, as Maurice took on Bible distribution work and Lorraine took up the challenge of supporting her husband and raising a family in difficult conditions.

A Handful of Streamers is not just a fascinating and compelling read, but also a gentle call to consider our own personal faith, take up the challenge of doing whatever the Lord God asks us to do and go wherever He wants us to go.
