Their journeys have brought them perils and heartaches as well as knowledge and experience that cannot be learned unless lived.
Despite all the constant demand for critical thinking and cognitive flexibility, each always returns to family and home. This is only natural for them as Ruth herself has written a book entitled Longing for Peace: Shantistan, where she writes a guide specifically designed to create a peaceful land. Her desire to overcome the chaos and heartbreaks from being a “third culture individual” has pushed her to teach resilience to the afflicted and enlightenment to the ignorants. Because of this deep-seated belief, she is able to pass this mindset to her family. This is why amidst their trials of separation, they are able to thrive in their adventures by staying true to their familial code of honesty, faith, and love for each other and for Peace itself.
Pearson Media Group has found the teachings of this book worthy of the world, especially in a time torn between indifference and acceptance. Be inspired to integrate life’s priorities through life experiences and mediate through diverse circumstances without losing the spark of loving care and empathy with the Burgess’s book, “Longing for Home.”

About the Authors:
Ruth Lenora Vassar Burgess was born in Poona, Maharastra State, India on August 6, 1939, the second child of missionary parents who ran an orphanage there. Early in her life, she has traveled back and forth from India and the USA due to WWII. After the war ended in 1945, she returned to India and enrolled in an American school at the age of 8 where she met her future husband, Stanley Milton Burgess.

Ruth left India for USA in 1952 where she finished public school in Oklahoma and Texas. In 1959, Stan visited her there and won her heart. They were married the next year. Moving to Springfield, Missouri, Ruth begins her career in educating special needs children. She soon earned a Ph.D. in Speech and Language Sciences in 1979. Meanwhile, their family grew with 5 children added who currently blessed them with 10 treasured grandchildren. Ruth continued to pursue higher education, completing post-doctoral studies at Harvard University, Deccan College, Poona, India, and Bar-Ilan in Tel Aviv. She is also a significant successor of an eminent Jewish psychologist, Professor Reuven Feuerstein, advancing his teachings of mediated learning and instrumental enrichment cognitive development. Ruth enjoys teaching and researching multi-cultured environments with a hope for a peaceful future, a principle that leads her family to their adventures. From these experiences, her books were born.
Justin David Burgess was born to Ruth and Stan Burgess in 1974. He is the youngest son and a twin to sister, Heidi Amanda Elizabeth. His family’s lifelong beliefs have carved him into the man he is today, the kind who values faith in God, love for his family, and hope for a harmonious future. The experiences and lessons he gained from their individual and familial journeys led him in writing “Longing for Home” in tandem with his mother. Currently, Dr. David is the lead pastor of St. Mark Presbyterian Church.
