Set in a big city in Africa, covering only a few days of Walter and Ingrid’s life, the story develops in a surprising and suspenseful way. Through the struggles of the people they are trying to help, both find themselves facing unexpected challenges to their own marriage. Nothing in this book is fiction. All the stories have really happened. All of the conversations have really taken place. The people involved are still living today. The setting of these events is Africa, but the problems dealt with are relevant to all parts and to all cultures.

Walter Trobisch (1923-1979), worked for many years in Africa with his Swedish-American wife, Ingrid. Returning from Africa, they lived in Austria but served the world as marriage counselors through public speaking, books, and especially by answering thousands of letters written to them from all over the world. The couple founded Family Life Mission. His death at the age of fifty-five came as a shock to many who looked to him for leadership in the area of marriage and family counseling.
