Scandalon by Susan Elaine Jenkins

Running From Shame and Finding God's Scandalous Love
Running from scandal - in her family, church and community life - Susan moves from California to China. At first, the adventure of experiencing an exotic culture brings the escape she craves. Gradually, as the layers of mystery and reserve fall away, she gets to know her new Chinese friends on deeper levels. At the same time the self-protective layers around her own heart peel back painfully, exposing her inner brokenness.
In this vivid and transparent memoir, Susan takes us on a fascinating journey into the streets and homes of modern China. The travel memoir is interspersed with Susan's personal story of emotional and spiritual sabotage, shame and shattered dreams. It all comes together as she opens her heart anew to God's love - the most scandalous love of all.

Susan Elaine Jenkins has lived in China for fourteen years, teaching the performing arts in international schools. She was previously a teacher in private schools in California.   You can check out Susan's website HERE.  Or read an excerpt HERE.

During March I am excited to be featuring Cladach's line of international Memoirs. These stories happened in China, Israel, Taiwan, Western Europe, Russia, Southeast Asia, Africa and America.
Each week you can download free Amazon Kindle e-books, enjoy updates from the authors, try new recipes from the countries where the stories are told, see slide shows and more!
Today, and for the next 4 days, Cladach is offering a free download of the Kindle version of this book.
I received a copy of this book from Cladach for the purpose of my review. I have not personally read this entire book yet, but certainly have plans to do so.
