This book opens a window into the heart
of a loving missionary wife and mother dealing with the challenges of
ministering in a different land. Refreshingly transparent in expressing her
feelings, Patricia McGregor, with beautiful simplicity, tells it like it is,
the joys as well as the sorrows. On occasion, too, her husband, Bishop Todd
McGregor, as well as her daughters, Corbi and Charese (ages 15 and 16 at the
time) share their thoughts.
It is a moving saga, filled with
adventure and surprise. The author has remarkable ability of seeing spiritual
applications in the common things that happen every day. Life for her is a
journey of obedience in the bonds of Christ. The road has many twists and
turns, but even detours along the way serve to enlarge experiences of God’s
faithfulness. To be sure, keeping the priorities of the Kingdom in order is not
easy. There is a cross in it. Yet, however difficult the task, the love of
Jesus shines through, and she makes you want to follow Him.
Reading this book can be a tonic for
your soul.

Patricia (Patsy) McGregor\'s journey to
Africa began in 1991 where her adventures were documented in her first book, A
Guest in God’s World: Memories of Madagascar
. The Detour is a collection of her five-year experience in Kenya and gives
spiritual insight into her discovery of a deep love for the African people.
Today, we find her back in Madagascar
serving as the wife of the Bishop of Toliara, Madagascar, a mother of two grown
daughters, an ordained priest, and immersed within a new ministry dedicated to
the villages and people of Southern Madagascar.
