This is not usually something that I would read, however I really enjoyed it.  I have read a lot of historical biographies but this one was particularly interesting as it was from a missionary perspective and covered the Japanese prisoner of war camps.  Over the book you really got to know the characters and Dorathay is truly inspirational.  I enjoyed the love story and the tales of her children mixed with the hardship of life in the camps.  Would certainly recommend this to anyone looking for a different perspective on the war.

A true story of a courageous young American doctor who struggles to bring healthcare to a poor remote village in India. The lack of supplies and the caste system makes her job nearly impossible. It takes you into a world known at the time to fear outsiders. She eventually finds love at last.

I have just one word; captivating. The author weaves visual metaphors into this story artfully.  I truly enjoyed this book and fully intend to again..
