Amanda Bechtel's story is the fictionalized account of the true life experiences of a United Methodist missionary nurse to Mozambique. She learns about life under secret police surveillance as she studies Portuguese in Lisbon. Once Amanda arrives in Mozambique, she must decide about her future after being deported by the Portuguese government. After she's reassigned to Rhodesia, the district health officer quarantines the hospital during a cholera epidemic. Later news reports about conditions in a Rhodesian "protected" village prompt missionaries to visit the site. Film smuggled out of the country eventually provides evidence to defend missionary colleagues accused of subversive activity and treason. On Amanda's return to Mozambique, arrest and torture of Protestant clergy heighten safety concerns at the hospital. Renewed fighting thwarts her amorous involvement with a colleague turned freedom fighter. Jonna-Lynn K.

From the Author:

All of Amanda's experiences were mine. The book started as a memoir, but I soon realized that there was too much information that I would need to reveal about others without their premission. That's when my story became a novel.
The unexpected experience of writing was that I again experienced many of the reactions that I had gone through at the time. Whenever I wrote about meeting with the secret police, my hands became cold and clammy. At times I typed through tears.

I hope you enjoy this tale about my life.
