Reality is Better than Fiction! Oct 6, 2008
Especially when you are reading about the lives of Paul & Margaret Brand. I have had the pleasure of knowing Margaret for many years since they've settled in Seattle. And, as noted in the foreword, she is the most humble person I've ever met, and I had to read her book to get a glimpse of the extraordinary life that she led. Personal feelings aside, I thought that the book was very pleasantly designed, integrating direct quotes and memories from Margaret into the main storyline and historical context provided by the author. I found myself flying through this book, passing a hundred pages at a time. This is a great book, showing how a life, guided by God, can make such a significant impact on so many people. This is a great read and well worth-while purchase.
Vision For God Aug 8, 2008
An inspiring book on the life of Margaret Brand. Her personal memories, written in bold type in the book give real insights into the depth of character of this lady and the biographical information fills in the story of a life lived with vision and love for both people and for God. Her life as a wife, mother and as a surgeon in India is quite remarkable A great read.
The remarkable story of a medical pioneer Nov 15, 2006
Philip Yancey's foreword to this fascinating memoir sums it up best: "It would be difficult to invent a life more full of adventure than Margaret Brand's." This colorful and delightful memoir tells the story of Dr. Margaret Brand, a medical pioneer in the treatment of leprosy ophthalmology. From her childhood in South Africa to her World War II medical training in London to her world-renown work with victims of Hansen's disease (leprosy) in both India and Carville, Louisiana, Dr. Brand's biography is a "can't put it down" story that demonstrates that truth can be even more amazing than fiction. "Dr. Margaret" is a skilled storyteller, and her surgeon son-in-law, James Jost, has done us all a great service by coauthoring her story and bringing it to print. Dr. Margaret's service to God, her family, and those around her suffering from a once mysterious and debilitating disease will inspire readers.
