Overview

Peril and Adventure in the Land Once Called the White Man's Graveyard.John Winslow is a restless young man who drops out of college, tries many jobs, and finally goes to Africa to visit his missionary relative, Barney Winslow. Uninterested in religion, John falls in love with Africa and decides to stay, becoming a professional white hunter.Annie Rogers, another of the Winslow family, comes to New York City, pursuing her dream of becoming a missionary to Africa, but is turned away by several missionary organizations. An opportunity to work as the personal secretary of Jeanine Quitana, a flamboyantly wealthy young socialite, seems to contradict Annie's calling, yet she feels it is the right step. Then a whirlwind trip to England and the change to meet royalty is followed by passage booked to America on the maiden voyage of the R.M.S. Titanic!Three very different lives, separated by continents, are destined to collide, yet how will this ever be when the icy Atlantic wreaks its destruction? Is the dark ocean as foreboding as the Dark Continent?

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The ongoing saga of the far-flung Winslow family continues in this 22d title in the popular series (e.g., The Shadow Portrait, Benthany, 1998). It is 1905, and Jeb Winslow, an adopted member of the family, travels to Montana to visit a ranch run by his relations, the Rogers family. Jeb is enthralled with their daughter Annie, who hopes to become a missionary in Africa. Jeb, meanwhile, wants to become a hunter in Africa. Both pursue their dreams, with Annie's goals taking her to New York City and onto the Titanic before she is eventually reunited with her true love, Jeb. After so many volumes of the Winslow series, Morris has his formula just right, and the mixture of family drama, romance, and spirituality is quite pleasing here. His many fans should find this book as satisfying as the first 21. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

Go with these 4 people as they travel on Titanic, and then brave the wilds of being missionaries. They face sickness, and quite possibly death many times, but they learn to love each other and trust in God.
