This book opens a window into the heart of a loving missionary wife and mother dealing with the challenges of ministering in a different land. Refreshingly transparent in expressing her feelings, Patricia McGregor, with beautiful simplicity, tells it like it is, the joys as well as the sorrows. On occasion, too, her husband, Bishop Todd McGregor, as well as her daughters, Corbi and Charese (ages 15 and 16 at the time) share their thoughts. It is a moving saga, filled with adventure and surprise. The author has remarkable ability of seeing spiritual applications in the common things that happen every day. Life for her is a journey of obedience in the bonds of Christ. The road has many twists and turns, but even detours along the way serve to enlarge experiences of God's faithfulness. To be sure, keeping the priorities of the Kingdom in order is not easy. There is a cross in it. Yet, however difficult the task, the love of Jesus shines through, and she makes you want to follow Him. Reading this book can be a tonic for your soul. Robert E. Coleman Distinguished Senior Professor of Evangelism and Discipleship Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary _______________________________________________________________________ Patricia (Patsy) McGregor's journey to Africa began in 1991 where her adventures were documented in her first book, A Guest in God's World: Memories of Madagascar.

A “compelling” novel of art, danger, and one man’s adventure in pre-World War II Italy, from the author of Plum Rains (Library Journal). Ernst Vogler is twenty-six years old in 1938 when he is sent to Rome by his employer—the Third Reich’s Sonderprojekt, which is collecting the great art of Europe and bringing it to Germany for the Führer. Vogler is to collect a famous Classical Roman marble statue, The Discus Thrower, and get it to the German border, where it will be turned over to the Gestapo. It is a simple, three-day job. Things start to go wrong almost immediately. The Italian twin brothers who have been hired to escort Vogler to the border seem to have priorities besides the task at hand—wild romances, perhaps even criminal jobs on the side—and Vogler quickly loses control of the assignment. The twins set off on a dangerous detour and Vogler realizes he will be lucky to escape this venture with his life, let alone his job. With nothing left to lose, the young German gives himself up to the Italian adventure, to the surprising love and inevitable losses along the way. From the celebrated author of The Spanish Bow and Behave,

The Detour is a fascinating journey through eight worlds in seven chapters. Not strictly an autobiography, it provides glimpses of a Lancashire childhood in pre-war and wartime Leyland and the Roman Catholicism of that time and place. There follows the wider world of grammar school and the author's first contact with the Jesuits; and then that of the novitiate, which he aptly calls 'Out of this World', so surreal and strange does it now appear. He then contrasts the liberating world of Oxford, with its tutors and general openness, with the rigid spiritual, philosophical and theological worlds that belonged to what he calls 'Jesuitism'. After protracted studies he held responsible posts at Heythrop College for over ten years, where he played a major role in its move to become part of the University of London. After a further decade as Head of Theology and Religious Studies at the Roehampton Institute, Robert Butterworth is now enjoying married life in domestic retirement, cooking, studying Greek classical writers and exploring his new world of personal reflection, which has led him to propose some practical and challenging principles for the reinterpretation and revision of Roman Catholic tradition. The whole story makes for a riveting
