Vernice Shostal writes about An Enduring Faith: Born and raised in Paraguay, Emma Salmon-Plett is the author of An Enduring Faith, a chronicle of the trials of the Mennonites while they moved from country to country seeking a place where they could practise their faith in freedom. She has personally endured and persevered to overcome language, health and financial difficulties. Emma likes to spend time with her two children and one grand-daughter, as well as gardening. "I have a miniature 'Butchart Garden,' she says. "I keep my memory sharp by being involved in church, planting, and teaching Bible at our Bible study meetings." Every life is a journey. Emma Salmon's journey of faith has given her the strength to overcome financial hurdles, a language barrier and cancer surgery that left her partially incapacitated, to achieve a doctoral degree, marry, raise a family and live a full life. -Senior Living: Vancouver Island's 50+ Lifestyle Magazine Every life is a story inside a much larger story. Every life gathers and refracts a hundred other stories, a thousand, each worthy of a book all by itself. The joy of Emmi Salmon's book is how seamlessly she knits together her own story with the thousand others. This is at once a compelling history of the Mennonites, a gripping narrative of several Mennonite communities and families, a loving tribute to one family, and a personal memoir of one woman's life and times. It has all the makings of a great novel: suffering and endurance, betrayal and loyalty, love and faith, and a plot that sweeps the globe. That the events narrated here actually happened make it all the more poignant and inspiring. -Mark Buchanan, Pastor and author of Your God is too Safe and many others. A deeply personal account of the trials and tribulations suffered over the centuries by a Mennonite family in their determination to remain true to the faith of their fathers. The author's sense of identity with the entire historical Mennonite community combines with her own, individual reactions to events that both affect her personally and that determined her family's destiny, to bring the entire story to life, in a way that resonates with her sense of humour and outrage, and the steadfastness of her faith. -Gray Sutherland, author of A Twitter of Sparrows, NATO translator & Editor of Enduring Faith
