Amie's Book Reviews

it was amazing   ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This is a fascinating memoir of a childhood unlike any most of us could possibly imagine. It is a tale of a bygone era that is so engrossing it reads like fiction.  Born to white missionary parents during their first mission to India during the years when India was still ruled by the British Empire. 

Margaret Essebaggers has written this memoir of her childhood with startling detail. No one remembers their early years with any degree of detail, but through family journals, photographs, and letters she wrote home from boarding school her parents saved, Margaret has been able to write an exquisite account of growing up in India in a time now largely forgotten. 

I loved seeing the pictures and I do not think this book would be complete without them. Reading about her childhood as an MK or "Missionary Kid." Because I was literally unable to put this memoir down, I rate it as 5 out of 5 Stars.
