Betting on a Certainty launched Sunday, March 23. Copies were printed in Australia, where Ann expects most readers to be, but for international audiences it is available on Amazon or CreateSpace in both print and Kindle formats.
Ann is a witty storyteller. (I loved the part about the pooey diapers thrown overboard sailing from New Guinea where she was born! Not to mention her larcenous grandmother.) She is frank about her prejudices growing up after World War 2. It would have been easy to become entrenched in them under the apartheid regime of her husband’s country. Yet God did a work in Ann, healed the pain of her past, transformed her heart with his love and shaped her into a willing tool for the Kingdom. Rev. Bruce Stanley, Ann’s pastor at All Saints Anglican Church in Sydney, calls it her “frightening honesty.” Even if you aren’t an avid reader of missionary biographies, you will enjoy this one. I certainly did.
