Julene Hodges Schroeder was raised in an Ethiopia that was beginning to emerge from centuries of isolation. When her parents went as missionaries in 1945, they expected to make sacrifices and were tested to the limit. But they never realized how much they would fall in love with that beautiful land and its people, nor how Ethiopia would capture their hearts forever. Under An African Sky is a story you can read to your children and grandchildren, about a girl who lived an unusual life and loved it. Julene writes the story of her childhood with warmth and honesty, sharing its hilarious moments, its lasting friendships and a particular sorrow that is common to missionaries’ kids. You will be warmed to discover how the gospel was introduced in those long-ago days by people who truly did “seek first the kingdom” and how they happily gave up everything for what they considered the greatest adventure.

Sometimes small towns hold the biggest secrets. Ambitious young attorney Tom Crane is about to become a partner in a high-profile Atlanta law firm. But first he must clear one final matter from his docket—the closing of his deceased father’s law practice in his hometown of Bethel, Georgia. Killed in a mysterious boating accident, John Crane didn’t appear to leave his son anything except the hassle of wrapping up loose ends. But instead of celebrating his promotion, Tom finds himself packing up his office, having suddenly been “consolidated.” To add insult to injury, that same night his girlfriend breaks up with him . . . by letter. Returning to Bethel with no sense of his future and no faith to fall back on, Tom just wants to settle his father’s final affairs and get back to Atlanta. But then he runs into an unexpected roadblock—two million dollars of unclaimed money stashed in a secret bank account. And evidence that his father’s death may not have been accidental. Worse still, a trail of data suggests his father played a role in an international fraud operation.
The good folks at Mt. Zion Baptist are doing their best to keep the church flowing smoothly while Pastor Phillips takes time off to be with his wife in her final days. Beatrice “Mama B” Jackson even opens her home so that the women’s groups can continue to meet faithfully after some “rascal” stole the copper from the church’s air conditioning unit. With her semi-estranged granddaughter and great-grandson staying in the guest room, Mama B soon has a full house. When the interim preacher and his wife start touting messages that don’t line up with the Bible, Mama B wonders how and if she can intervene without causing strife in the congregation or discouraging the young couple.
