When Cinda decides to visit her identical twin, Linda, and family in Northern Uganda, little does she know they will soon be running for their lives. How did a relaxing vacation result in a terrifying escape from artillery and automatic gunfire? The answer begins four decades earlier when their parents and family of five children leave everything familiar in America to start life as medical missionaries in rural East Africa.
Three generations of a family’s love, forged by shared faith, struggles, and triumphs, serve them now as they fight for survival.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Heartprints of Africa is a real story of how God prepared, provided, and protected three generations of a missionary family to East Africa as they journeyed through remote country, tropical illness, and a literal run from a battle for survival. I believe that story is very powerful-crossing barriers of age, religion, and politics. The story of my life, like anyone else if they will tell it, can make a difference in others' lives. A reader pulls out of my story what they need for their journey.
