A Sense of Mission

By Ann Gaylia O'Barr

Description:

Kaitlin Sadler is nine when her diplomat parents are killed in a U.S. embassy bombing. She must leave the overseas world she knows to live with her guardian, Matilda, on Simon Island in Puget Sound. Determined to redeem the tragedy of her parents’ deaths, Kaitlin makes a binding decision to become a diplomat in the U.S. State Department’s Foreign Service and pursues it relentlessly as she grows up. But is that really what her heart wants? And why does a niggling memory vanish every time she fights to remember it?

Ethan Coverwood, Matilda’s nephew and a friend of Kaitlin, is on a diplomatic career path of his own. When the two are assigned to posts in Saudi Arabia during the Gulf War, something more than friendship begins to brew. But will it be strong enough to unite two people who could be reassigned to different continents in the blink of an eye? Enough for Ethan as he struggles to carry out America’s policies in a chaotic world? For Kaitlin as she agonizes over the desperate people she meets in her duties?

Book Takeaway:

All the main characters suffered hurts on of one kind or another, but the love of family transformed lives of fear to one where, as one of the characters says, “We can have faith to trust the good times.”

Why the author wrote this book:

A Sense of Mission is my answer to the many tragic events in the world today in which innocent people are harmed. Kaitlin, the heroine, is the fictional character who overcomes and redeems the tragedy that happened to her in her childhood.
