Linda's other memoir, Grandma's Letters from Africa

Linda K. Thomas expected that when she grew old, she'd be a quaint little grandma, the kind that sits in a rocking chair and knits blankets for new grandbabies. But God and her husband had other ideas: Africa! Grandma's Letters from Africa is Linda's story of her first four years working in Africa as a missionary-journalist.

In this narrative, uniquely told through letters to her granddaughters, Linda shares how she stumbled into adventures most grandmas could not imagine: A hippo charges her, a Maasai elder spits at her, and a baboon poops in her breakfast. As she faithfully answers God's calling, and its challenges, she recounts both hilarious and frightful incidents, joys and heartaches, answered prayers, and those God seemed to leave unanswered.

While drinking tea from a pot cleaned with cow's urine, suffering through an embarrassing breast exam, and narrowly escaping a carjacking, Linda falls in love with Africa, the people, and the work God presented her.

Grandma's Letters from Africa is a chronicle of God's heart, His delightful creativity, and His amazing power to help those in need.

Grandma's Letters from Africa received several awards: Editor's Choice, Rising Star, and Reader's Choice from the publisher.

Ask your local independent bookstore to order a copy for you. Or order it from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or other booksellers.
