A SUITABLE FATHER is a terrific tale of true love. It started off with a bang and had me stuck to my seat. I was not able to put the book down because I had to find out what was going to happen next with Kurt and Maggie. Mrs. Crossley adds just the right touch of suspense and action without taking away from the romance. She has a great way with writing her characters' emotions that has your heart reaching out to them. This book has a place on my keeper shelf and I will definitely be looking for more of her work. mendi@romancejunkies.com


DANCING WITH THE DEVIL: This is a great read, darkly suspenseful, full of mystery, and passionate love. A sinister, insane man comes back into the life of the woman he tortured in the past, intent on gaining back what he deems as his lost love .....This is a definite recommend to lovers of the suspense romance genre, Reviewed by Kari Thomas

We worked in Kakamega for three months in 2007. We left Kenya over Christmas 2007 and returned on December 31 to chaos after the elections. This picture is of a road block in Kisumu--our destination on January 1st, 2008. We had to wait 6 days in Nairobi while we decided what to do. Eventually we returned to Kakamega with an armed escort, but things remained volatile.

We are hoping that tensions will not increase as Kenya faces its worst drought in ten years. Hunger is widespread and we know we will be faced with some difficult choices over the next few months.
