$17.99

This is a memoir about a marriage that bridged time, distance, and the serious cultural differences of a young biracial couple. Having met through an incredible set of circumstances — going back to their parents in the 1930s and living through the years of World War II — Edward and Monika want their children and grandchildren to know their love story, lest they forget their origins during this century’s wild cultural changes. Above all, it is a story of God acting behind the happenings in their lives, as they learned to understand and trust His love, faithfulness, and the process of recovery from gambling addiction.

Description

CHOPSTICK AND CHOCOLATE

Edward Lumsdaine grew up in Shanghai during the war years with an American father and Chinese mother. He worked his way to the US on a Danish tramp steamer, followed by four years in the US Air Force. He earned his doctorate in mechanical engineering, then advanced from professor to Dean of Engineering in several universities. Edward taught and directed research in solar energy, engineering design, and entrepreneurship before retiring in Tennessee, where he now plays Appalachian music.

Monika Lumsdaine came to the US to study math as an exchange student, sponsored by a Rotary family. As an avid learner, she constantly found new ways to challenge herself which included getting her pilot’s license in both Switzerland and America. At the end of their freshman year, Monika and Edward were married. The couple raised four talented children, while simultaneously continuing their studies. Since then, Monika has worked on a variety of projects, including designing passive solar homes — one going on to win a national award.

Her consulting work involved creative problem solving and whole-brain team development. Now, she loves to photograph Smoky Mountain wildflowers.
