It was supposed to be the short stint good deed that would justify Conor Grennan's yearlong footloose global joyride. Instead, it turned into a long-time commitment. When 29-year-old Conor began as a temporary volunteer at Nepal's Little Princes Children's Home, he thought that he would be working with orphans. What he discovered was even more heart-wrenching: The youngsters at the Kathmandu home were actually pawns in a cynical child trafficking scheme; supposedly guided to safety during the Nepali civil war by con artists who extracted huge sums from their poor villager parents. Grennan dropped his extended vacation plans and began a dangerous quest to reunite the abandoned children with their parents. This is his moving story. A fine suggestion for readers of Three Cups of Tea.
