Joanna Reed Shelton

lives with her husband in Montana's Rocky Mountain Northwest. For over twenty years, she was intimately involved in US-Japan relations in increasingly senior positions of government and diplomacy. A quest for knowledge about her Tennessee great-grandfather's life and work as a missionary in nineteenth-century Japan launched her on a new path. After long holding religion at arm's length, she now serves as an elder in the Presbyterian Church (USA). Her book has been nominated for a Christianity Today 2017 Book Award for history/biography.
