2010 Foreword Book of the Year
The Unexpected Visitor is a stunning collection of black and white photographs and inspirational passages that takes the reader on a journey of discovery, surprise and faith. The photographs were taken over a period of more than half a century by physician N.B. Baroody, who traveled the world in recent years with his wife Margaret doing medical mission work. The book shares moments of their life journey together, their bond of connection and love that is both personal and universal.
Margaret H. Baroody has been a homemaker, foster parent, community volunteer, licensed social worker and teacher, teaching at Francis Marion University and King’s Academy, a private high school. Her passion for art
is mirrored in her love of the written word. It was with great care that she and N.B. selected the passages for the book and shared a more personal narrative.
