Book Review: Call of a Coward by Marcia Moston

When you say that you will do anything for God’s glory, do you really mean it? That is the question Marcia Moston had to answer when her husband came and told her they were moving to Guatemala for a year. She has to endure a new way of life; nothing is the same. A different way of traveling, eating, and even laundering clothes. She meets many new people, and begins to fall in love with her small village. In this heartwarming story, Marcia shares how she responded to her call, the Call of a Coward.
I liked:
  • Her writing style. It was very endearing. She wrote very clearly, but did not seem stuffy. She made me want to keep reading. It felt like she was speaking at my church about missions work.
  • Her humorous tales. There were a few sections where I laughed really hard. She definitely had some funny stories.
  • Her memories. I loved how she wrote very reminiscently, and yet seemed in the present.
I disliked:
  • I did think the book seemed to end quickly, but there wasn’t much more she could’ve added, so I won’t fault her for it ;)
Overall, I enjoyed the story thoroughly and would recommend it to anyone interested in travel, biographies, missions work, or just a good story. It is perfect for all ages (given they can read :) because it is so pure. I liked this book very well!
This book was given to me for free in exchange for an honest review.
