"Monique Dembele saves lives and dispenses hope in a place where childbirth is a life-and-death matter. Her unquenchable passion to improve the lot of the women and children in her West African village is matched by her buoyant humour in the face of an unhappy marriage and backbreaking work.
This is the deeply affecting story of the rare friendship between a young aid volunteer and an inspirational midwife who defies tradition and becomes - too early in her own life - a legend."
I don't usually enjoy non-fiction books, so we'll see what this one is like.
I haven't done much reading lately so my goal these holidays is to read a minimum of 2 books...and tidy the study...and paint the family room/kitchen area...and...and...and...the list is endless - shame the holidays only go for 2 weeks.
