Rating: 4 ~ I Like It

Passport Through Darkness is an autobiography of a woman’s journey in one of the darkest land in the world, Sudan. Kimberly L. Smith was a successful woman with everything that she could ever achieve in her American Dream and yet, she was discontented and dissatisfied. Until one day when she dared to allow God to use her and her husband, Milton. Their lives has never been the same since then.

I found this autobiography an enjoyable read. Smith writes in brutal honesty as she gives us gut-wrenching glimpses of life in Sudan. She is not a professional writer but manages to communicate her message in a simple and effective manner. Smith is also honest in the book and does not try to put up a facade to hide her character flaws. There is many stories in it that is both informative and interesting. I found it difficult to put the book down until I finished reading it.
