Molly had a burning desire to see the world. But could she leave the safety of home and family and a special boyfriend to live on a college ship for a semester while visiting seventeen countries? At first she didn't know a single person, even her roommate, but she soon found herself in a tight-knit group of students who traversed three continents together. Through such events as tragedy striking at Easter, a friend disappearing with the flirtatious guide in Morocco, and an angry lady in France trying to destroy Molly's camera, the group learned to protect each other during hard times. They stuck together using a variety of resources to cope with different cultures and languages. But was Molly's faith strong enough to endure whatever adventure came with the next port? Mary McElroy lives in Washington, U.S.A. with her husband. Together they raised three daughters and now love spending time with their eight grandchildren. Due to a twenty-five year career in teaching and administering a Christian school, she delights in seeing children enjoy reading books, especially ones that increase their faith in God.
