Author Biography
I hail from a town called Harmony with a booming population of 75 people, three million chickens, several dogs, and my two imaginary friends. After I graduated from Salisbury University (in my home state of Maryland) with an Art degree, I joined Campus Crusade for Christ staff and my traveling lifestyle began. I've visited all 50 states, lots of countries, and 6 continents. (I'm holding at 6 continents - with no desire to add Antarctica to the mix.) I’ve even lived in several of those states and two countries in Eastern Europe.

After 21 years as a missionary, I married for the first time in my forties, involving a move back to the States and a career change. While working at Golden Gate Seminary in California, I fulfilled my childhood dream and wrote my debut book, We Wait You (now translated into Romanian). Since then, I’ve had three short stories and numerous articles published, winning an Amy Writing Award for one of them. I also beat all my friends by being the first to become a grandmother - in a record seven years of matrimony.

My husband and I have recently relocated from the bustling San Francisco Bay area to a sleepy town in North Carolina, where I now work at Lenoir-Rhyne University. I've come full circle, minus the imaginary friends, that is.


Book Review
Reviewed by for Readers' Favorite

We Wait You is a true-to-life story by Taryn Hutchison about her work as a Christian missionary in the war-torn climate of Europe in 1990. Covering many countries which lived under the stringent Communist control of Cold War Russia, the author describes not only her work and the people she tried to help discover God, but also her personal friendships and her own emotional journey as she travelled through such a harsh, demanding environment. So begins a fascinating journey to preach the forbidden topics of democracy and Christianity to a nation that has been denied them.

Taryn Hutchison writes with the prose of a great storyteller, removing herself just enough from the narration to let readers take her place in the vivid world she describes. Whilst the additional ‘What About You’ questions were of little consequence to a non-religious person like me, I could see that they were well constructed and highly useful for people who wish to contemplate their faith and compare it to Hutchison’s experiences. What interested me most was the author’s commitment to a full and detailed explanation of the political and social climate that the people of countries such as Romania had to cope with at that period in history, which makes it all the more understandable as to how finding Christian faith would help them through such dark times. Overall, We Wait You is an accomplished work which preaches the important of God, but also highlights the basic human need for faith and love when life is hard.
