librarian Johanna Holland, likes her job, she's contented living with her parents, and Itty Bitty, her two-year old Maltese. She is settled in her ways and doesn't like change. Then life kicks her out of her rut. Her parents decide they'd rather live in assisted living rather than their own home, which puts Johanna out on her own. She meets Sam Littleton, who sends her pulse pounding and sets her to dreaming romantic dreams. But Sam is a medical missionary on his way to Papua, New Guinea, a world away from Saginaw, Michigan.
Johanna has no calling to be a missionary, doesn't want to leave her comfort zone, but Sam talks her into going with him. Now she's stuck in a missionary's hut perched on stilts in the middle of a lagoon fileld with predatory catfish. She wants to go home, she wants indoor plumbing, and she'd kill for good old fast food.
Monday Morning Faith is a heartwarming story about a man and woman who seem completely unsuited for each other, but who fall in love anyway. Lori Copeland has done a lot of research for this story. You'll see the village through Johanna's eyes, and understand better the culture shock a missionary faces sometimes. Lori Copeland's trademark humor is right on target in this book, and she has included enough twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. This is a heartwarming story that sends a strong message about the faith and commitment of the men and women who have dedicated their lives to follow God's calling, no matter where it leads them.
