A memoir of the two years Kris Holloway spent as a Peace Corps volunteer in Mali, a nation with one of the highest maternal death rates in the world. The story of her work with Monique Dembele, an overburdened and courageous midwife, creates a fascinating glimpse into the day-to-day life of another culture, and a beautiful portrait of cross-cultural friendship.
RATING: * * * * Very, very good
