Overview

In June, 2004, two women named Elizabeth began their days in different hemispheres. Liz, an American nurse, was preparing to travel to Peru where she would be helping offer corrective surgery to needy children. Meanwhile, student and interpreter Liz C set out to walk to her destination. Two worlds were about to cross, joined by the helping hand of medical mission work.



In a thoughtful narrative, Lewis details how she developed a meaningful relationship with the younger Liz who dreamed of becoming a doctor to serve the people of her beloved Peru. But without the means or support, it seemed like an impossible dream. With the help of the author, she bridged the impossible and often stumbled through the medical school hierarchy to accomplish her dream and graduate medical school. Their loving relationship at times brought forth memories of the young ElizabethÕs stormy past as it conflicted with her future. In the end, the author reveals how unforeseen, out of the blue events can change everything.

Such a thoughtful, well-written account of a fascinating story of friendship, trust, altruism, and betrayal. I highly recommend this - I am still thinking about this story days after finishing the book. I enjoyed learning more about medical mission work as well as Peruvian culture, as well.
