STORY-LINE, AS THE LEAVES KISS THE STREAM:
Kenya and Mombasa are missionary fields for the Gamble family; not only an occupation but a calling from God. However, life for this Christian missionary family suddenly becomes a nightmare. As The Leave Kiss The Stream is an intense drama between father and daughter. Expelled from school, daughter Erin’s attitude is angry and self-pitying. The family leaves their Christian missionary calling to return to America. Erin, rebellious, verbally abusive, judgemental, and fill of teenage angst is determined to make life as miserable for her family as possible.
Determined to find common ground and healing for his family, Erin’s father’s solution is a camping and fly fishing trip in the Ozark Mountains. A place of peace, beauty, and spiritual healing. As Erin’s father stated:
“we reminded me of two wild animals who growled at each other, circled around, each trying to discover the other’s weakness, who swatted then yielded but always probed, and of course snarled.”
Come with Erin and her father as they traverse the high and lows of their father and daughter relationship. Will they find common ground? Will Erin find her way back to family and God?
