Threatened by deadly snakes, stinging scorpions and malaria-infested mosquitoes Suzanne as a nurse treats the sick. Suzanne and her African assistant Esther daily battle hazardous tribal beliefs and detrimental traditions while ministering to thousands of Africans. Esther is faced with the most potential deadly disaster of her life. Suzanne is continually challenged by the unfamiliar customs, menaced by evil spirits and baffled by the unusual African diseases. When this rather homely and overweight American meets a stranger she is suddenly confronted with the possibility of romance, love and even marriage. The plot grips readers through its intriguing twists and turns which all end in the most unexpected way. As a woman this astonishing tale promises to spiritually inspire you through laughter, tears, righteous indignation and fear while enriching your life with insights on daily existence in rural developing Africa.
