In Lebanon, a country racked by war, the Fullers are house-hunting, because they have a job to do--- publishing Christian literature in the Arabic language. The house they find is mostly a heap of rocks, Frances thinks, but Wayne begins turning it into home. Meanwhile the Syrian occupation, an Israeli invasion, the bombing of the American Marines, artillery battles and kidnappings impact their lives. Their sense of purpose and relationships with courageous and resilient friends strengthen their resolve, while the little rock house becomes a haven, and powerful external forces threaten their mission.
In Borrowed Houses has received four awards.
