5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"Missionary Kid" is an interesting, well-written, and charming memoir. It evokes the magic of the boarding school the author attended in the Palni Hills of South India in the 1940’s and 50’s and at the same time captures the tough realities her parents faced as American missionaries, working on the plains of Western Bengal, their courage and selflessness.

The American missionary movement in India is an inspiring, fascinating, and romantic story. Sadly, there has been a dearth of literature on this subject. With this book, Margaret Dopirak has done her part to remedy that.
