LOVE LOVE LOVE this book!!! If you like a story that takes you to a far away place and lets you sit with the locals around a cooking fire this is it.
A young woman is
sent to Mali by the peace corps to assist a local midwife in her daily
rounds and set up a better clinic for the women.
All I can say is
WOW. Its an eye opener for any westerner to see what daily life in Mali
is like let alone what its like for it 's pregnant women. As a reader I
felt a part of it and when the book was finished I had to lend it to as
many people as possible.
If you haven't read it yet you need to.
