Sarah Whitaker is burned out. Surgical training has drained her energy, sapped her compassion. Her boyfriend, David, prescribes a brilliant remedy: a year in Tanzania. They will climb a mountain and do some feel-good medical work. But when his funding dries up, he backs out - and she decides to go alone. The challenge of summiting the tallest peak in Africa pales beside the overwhelming need for medical care in this beautiful country. Death in childbirth is common, and Sarah is shocked by the scourge of female genital mutilation. Life in the remote village she's landed in is primitive and hazardous, and her fascination with an intriguing man diminishes her devotion to David. One thing is clear: if she survives the year, her life will never be the same.
