And God Answere: A Memoir invites us into the life of Jean Bell Mosley, who grew up on a rural Missouri farm, through the Depression, wars, the triumphs of country know-how and formal education, the loss of loved ones and the celebration of new birth, and the ever-present influences of God, nature, and the events of the twentieth century. She writes of simpler times and homemade happiness, of small graces and abundant blessings, of the fine art that nature unveils and the fine company that loving family provides. Her writing will make you laugh and cry, and cherish your own family and friends even more.

Missouri author Jean Bell Mosley (1913-2003) enthralled readers worldwide with her writing, yet she lived a quiet, unassuming life. Born in the tiny lead-belt mining town of Elvins, Missouri, she was raised on a farm in the southwest portion of the Ozark Mountains, educated in a country school, graduated from Flat River Junior College (now Mineral Area College), and earned a B.S. in Education from Southeast Missouri State College in 1937. She and her husband Edward P. Mosley resided in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, with their son, Steve Mosley, who teaches secondary school History. Her first short story, published by Woman’s Day magazine, was followed by 6 books, a weekly syndicated newspaper column that ran for over 40 years, and numerous short stories and articles printed in such magazines as The Saturday Evening Post, Reader’s Digest, The Writer, and Guideposts. Her many honors include the C.S. Lewis Silver Medal for her children’s book The Deep Forest Award and the Missouri Writers’ Guild Award for The Mockingbird Piano. Jean Bell Mosley died at age 89 on June 11, 2003, in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.Review:
I can still hear her silvery laughter and picture her face crinkling impishly with amusement. No conversation with Jean Bell Mosley was without laughter, and any interchange of any sort with her was unfailingly dignified, gentle, and life-affirming. . . . Her writing shines an engagingly merry light on the human condition. She will cheer you and coax you into feeling better about yourself and the world around you. --James McDermott, Roving Editor, Guideposts Magazine
A beloved and prolific writer, Jean Bell Mosley tied the complex world stage to her own modest surroundings, finding interpretation of rapidly changing times in the assuring cycles of nature, the goodwill of humankind, and underlying all, the bedrock of faith. . . .Jean Bell Mosley had a gift for the written word. --David Johnson, Director of Communications, Louisiana Cultural Vistas
