Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SOMERSET, Ky. - Nov 27, 2018 - Esther Lee Barron, the product of a missionary background and former educator with a master’s degree in the teaching of foreign language, has completed her new book, “The Colors of My Country”: a provoking account that tackles the topic of citizenship and inculturation while living a nomadic lifestyle.
Esther shares, “What begins as a compilation of memories morphs into a broader analysis of transition when one moves from country to country or stays in one place and encounters an unexpected variety of people otherwise presumed to be like oneself. The writing examines a personal journey of cultural assimilation, maneuvering through nuances of acceptable language and social rituals followed by feeling the loss of friends and place when heading to yet another unfamiliar location. Questions arise about one’s worth when geographical roots are perceived as unattainable and identity seems as fragmented as the mosaic of cultural influences. Herein lies hope that perspective gained through the passing of years helps to seal the quandaries with stability and that home can be found in loving people and faith in God. Grace be upon those whose children have chosen global citizenship, continents away from their nomadic parents, and offspring whose hands are raised to heaven for sustenance, far from the warmth of what is familiar.”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Esther Lee Barron’s new book propounds an insightful notion of appreciating change to adjust easier in new surroundings and environment.
This book also shares thoughts pertaining to faith and spirituality, which lay out the path for God’s grace to illuminate the soul and aid in finding purpose in life.
