    A reviewer

    From the nail biting experience and God's awesome miracle that exploded off the pages in the first chapter to the very end of the last chapter, this book is a page turner and hard to put down. There is a wonderful freshness of honesty, delightful humor, unexpected pathos, and fully engaging word pictures of the realities of the post Soviet years in a place I had only heard of as Outer Mongolia ('the ends of the earth'). You will laugh and you may cry, but the description of the Hogan family's three years in a culture so different in every way from America, comes alive with the reality of God's presence as you live their experiences with them and listen in on their thoughts. This true story tells of the good and the bad, the mistakes and the victories, the laughter and the tears it tells how God led them, provided for them, sustained them, comforted them, taught them, corrected them, and let them know quite clearly when it wasn't time to leave and when it was. What an amazing rollercoaster ride it was for that young American family, willing to answer God's call to such a far away and strange land. Their story definitely makes a great read. You won't want to miss the excitement and the challenge of living these three years with the Hogan Family.

    Motivating and uplifting

    I actually read this on my Nook first, but had to return it because the photos did not migrate. So I ordered the paper copy and just looked at the photos :~}. I already passed it along to a friend and may have to order some more copies. The book is non-fiction, but reads like a good story. There are a few areas where it does not flow smoothly, or repeats a concept. But overall, I would highly recommend this book for anyone with a heart for missions or a curiosity about eastern cultures.

    A really great read! You'll both laugh and cry.

    DISCLAIMER: I am the author and therefore not fully objective.<BR/>That being said, I want to recommend this book to you. It is the story an adventure of faith that takes an ordinary young family from suburban California to the literal ends of the earth. You will experience the strangeness of new cultures, the thrill of breakthroughs, the tearing agony of grief and loss, and the growth and victory that come from persevering under some of the most trying and interesting conditions you will ever read about. You will love this book.
