Overview

March 1982: It was quiet now on the plane. Carole’s mind was racing as her three young children slept peacefully next to her. They had escaped from Thika, Kenya with the help of missionaries, and they were flying home after almost two years. Carole was returning to America with a bruised body and a broken heart, three small children, no husband and no money. A reoccurring fear darted into her mind. Would her parents be at the airport, or would the rage that tore her family apart in 1976, because she married a black man from Uganda, still burn in their souls. But God had just orchestrated the miracle of their escape! She breathed out the fear that was trying to suffocate her, and breathed in His peace. She had learned to trust God daily in Kenya, and she knew that she could trust Him now.

    Why would a young, white America woman marry a native Ugandan, g

    Why would a young, white America woman marry a native Ugandan, going against her family’s wishes, and then uproot to Africa? That is a question those of us who knew Carole asked but she was in love and always the optimist. She tells her story with simplicity and sincerity in her new book, Escape Under the Kenyan Moon. Just having gone to Kenya last year, I can truly say she paints quite an accurate picture of the Kenyan landscape and lifestyle. It is easy to understand why she loved her life there and had bright hopes for the future of her children in that setting. But as in many cross-cultural marriages, there came a time when the differences were just too great and she knew she had to make a move. Such a move required courage and faith and Carole narrates her escape graphically, leaving the reader hungrily turning the pages to discover the outcome. Great story, great writing, great faith!

    This is a true story that begins with the love between a black man from Uganda and a white woman from the small town of Marion, Ohio, during the 1970's.
    It moves from there to the quaint village of Thika, Kenya where the love grows even greater love as itt embraces their six children and the caring community that opened their hearts to welcome them. Like a warm summer afternoon picnic that is attacked without warning by a cold and destructive storm, the love was torn apart and there was no place to find comfort or shelter, or so it seemed.
    Then the Son shined brightly and showed her His faithful love as He rescured her and her children during the dark dangerous night. Escape Under the Kenyan Moon is a story of
    True Love that never ends. The Story of God's Love quietly shares rich moments of the beauty of Kenya and His dramatic rescue during the dark and dangerous night.
    That is just the beginning for the next thirty years of His story of redemption.

    A woman in Africa finds herself trapped by deceit and fear embod

    A woman in Africa finds herself trapped by deceit and fear embodied as the one with whom she entered into
    a covenant. Love had brought her to this land where the sun was hot and the ground was dry. It was from that
    same love that  two of her beautiful children were birthed. Yet love was no longer  producing life, but was
    morphing into a death producing impostor that she scarcely recognized.Slowly her life was being eroded by
    death; a death that started deep inside the hidden places of her heart where her dreams and desires once
    thrived. As the moments came, the chords were pushed and pulled. No matter how much she convinced
    herself that each wave of rage would wash away back into the sea of forgetfulness, experience proved that it
    was only a matter of time before another wave came crashing to the shore; leaving her on her knees or on her
     face. Down she went, time after time, until one wave completely knocked all breath out of her. Death had all
    but consumed her and unknowingly ushered in Life Himself to became her sole existence.
    Through miracle after miracle, this Man, this Life, held back the powers of darkness and displayed
    His sovereign hand as He rescued her from the waves of rage and established her by the rivers of Life.
    Under the safety of His wing she and her children flew from a land dried by fear to a land richly watered by faith.
    Her new home became the edge of a wooded hill bordered by lakes that glisten as if glittered by the sun itself.
    To this day she still waters the ground with faith that she draws from the wells of her story.
