A Family’s Story of Faith, Love, Adventure, and Turmoil
The East Africa series, Book 1
CINDA ADAMS BROOKS
When Cinda decides to visit her identical twin, Linda, and family in Northern Uganda, little does she know they will soon be running for their lives. How did a relaxing vacation result in a terrifying escape from artillery and automatic gunfire? The answer begins four decades earlier when their parents and family of five children leave everything familiar in America to start life as medical missionaries in rural East Africa.
Three generations of a family’s love, forged by shared faith, struggles, and triumphs, serve them now as they fight for survival.

Who is Cinda Adams Brooks?

Her nursing, health education, and law enforcement careers combined for a rich twenty-year career teaching fitness, wellness, defensive tactics, and survival at the Texas Game Warden Training Academy. She currently pursues her mission — to unleash the champion in people — through her volunteer work in the Discovery Program and her connections with people that cross her path.
Cinda lives near Austin, Texas, with her husband, Stanley, and Rhodesian ridgeback puppy, Buddy. Among her interests are travel and competitive sports. She is a gold medalist in the World Police and Fire Games in biathlon (running and pistol shooting), rowing, cross country, and cycling.
