M. N. Smith, an educator and devoted wife, has completed her new book “In the Shadows of the Mission”: a potent tale of love and loss.

Smith writes, “The Shadow of the Mission is the story of an American girl's memories growing up on a foreign mission field in Honduras' remote villages. A girl dealing with the average coming of age challenges but is trying to find the courage to believe in God and her parents' decision to take the Bible verse from Luke 14:33, literally. "So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple."
It would be years before seeing that the conflicts between Honduras and the US-backed Contras in Nicaragua may have entangled her family more than she knew.
Learning to accept that her family is forever geographically scattered between Central and North America. A daughter's fight to acknowledge all the wonderful things that her parents had done for others, despite their humaneness.”

Published by Page Publishing, M. N. Smith’s tale is one of adventure, hope, and, at times, tragedy.

An utterly unique view of missionary work in the 1960’s and beyond is held within this autobiographical account. Join our author as she presents what it was like growing up in a Honduran village as a missionary child and the long reaching consequences of a decision made in good faith.
