About the Book

What happens when your support scaffolding suddenly disappears? In Route to Survival, Kate Mitchell makes courageous choices without sacrificing her feminine nature or the roles she must play in life. After losing her husband of thirty years, Kate gives up her upper middle-class lifestyle to spend nearly a year in a secluded African village where she experiences unspeakable sadness and violence. She returns to her home in the United States, but she is not alone.

In spite of her fears, she proactively tackles loneliness, loss, change, and criticism from those she loves best. Her inner resources and faith in God demonstrate survival is possible. Kate openly shares her joys, fears, and sorrows as she navigates the issues of life. You will smile with her and weep with her.

How do you respond when life hits you in the face? Where do you go for strength and encouragement? Who is watching?

Through Kate Mitchell you will learn that survival is possible and that your legacy is important.
