A Lovely Story  Aug 21, 2008
When I moved to Van Wert, Ohio almost 20 years ago, I was surprised to learn there was a little pocket of Welsh people in the midst of this heavily German Catholic population and I started asking about it. Everybody thought I was nuts, it's so taken for granted, but I received numerous invitations to attend the annual Gymanfa Ganu in order to really "get it" and eventually I did. I don't possess adequate words to describe it ("soaring joy" perhaps?), but Ms. Jones' last chapter entitled "Gymfana Ganu" comes as close as words can.

"Call to Cambria" captures the essence of this community and its love for music, the church and each other. As seen through the fictional eyes of the new minister--an outsider and a young woman in the early 1970's--the squabbles and snits and territorial battles are difficult to understand, let alone mediate, but Ms. Jones' heroine is valiant in her efforts and eventually succeeds. The story of Megan's growing love for the people of Cambria and theirs for her makes this a very rewarding and inspirational read. There's some romance and tragedy along the way, and some great chuckles.

It's not a perfect novel; it wandered around some, and perhaps some bits could have been expanded on and others condensed, which makes it not as riveting as say, "Christy", but it's a lovely story, and good for Ms. Jones for telling it. While I'm not a big fan of Christian fiction as a rule, I consider "Call to Cambria" a good story that happens to be about a minister. It will be especially interesting to readers familiar with the towns and people of rural Northwest Ohio.
