Hot Chocolate in June

By Holly Mthethwa

Biography & memoir | Paperback


Under-qualified and overly-ambitious, Holly left her family and friends behind in Nebraska to search for that radical life, that all-for-Jesus-or-nothing-at-all life. Escaping the depression that chased her following her father’s untimely and agonizing death, this young accountant-turned-adventurer trekked to remote mountain villages and through city streets smelling of human excrement: all in search of a Father’s love. Thousands of miles from the only home she’d ever known, Holly discovered a deeper passion for her God while sharing the gospel in India and soothing abandoned babies in South Africa. God made sure that Holly also encountered Oscar. The handsome South African rugby player seemed to have everything Holly had been praying for in a husband—except for the small detail that he didn’t look like any of the other guys she’d dated before. As the son of parents who had lived through racial segregation and apartheid, Oscar was not supposed to bring home a woman whose skin matched the color of the people his parents had served. And this small town, Midwestern girl wasn’t supposed to fall in love with a black man, either. Hot Chocolate in June is the true story of God’s undeniable ability to mend emotional wounds, overcome racial and cultural differences, and write amazing adventure stories. Join Holly on her adventure as she navigates her way through deep grief and loss, only to discover the amazing sweetness of love and restoration.

I grew up in the small, rural town of Cozad, Nebraska where the corn grows higher than I am tall and every local knows each other’s name(though not always how to pronounce them). Mthethwa. Mm.tet.wa. Always dreaming of changing the world, but with my feet firmly planted close to home, I attended college at the University of Nebraska at Kearney where I obtained my Master’s degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Accounting. During my undergraduate and graduate years, I travelled to Peru, India and South Africa to participate in missions and orphanage work. It was on my trip to South Africa where I met my hubby and fell in love with a country and culture much different than my own. I currently reside just outside of Washington, DC where I live an adventure with my husband Oscar-determined to follow in the footsteps of a radical God. I write stories and poetry influenced by the moments that hook my heart; life in developing countries, loving the overlooked, and most importantly Christ. I am passionate about the homeless, the global orphan crisis and reaching out to young women who desperately need to encounter the RELENTLESS love of Jesus.
