I love Christine Jeske's writing style. She is warm and candid, with a natural fluidity to her words. She is real in relating the challenges of crossing cultures--and finding herself in the process. Rather than entering a culture to fulfill preconceptions, the one expectation that is bound to be exceeded is that of surprise. Her story makes clear that we will never cease to be surprised by people, wherever we are...IF we are open to their overtures and honest revelations. These make for a richer life and deeper, more relevant faith.
