ABOUT THE BOOK

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, Peruvian student and interpreter Liz set out to walk to her job as a medical translator. 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 Elizabeth's stormy past as it conflicted with her future. In the end, the author reveals how unforeseen, out of the blue events can change everything.

“I greatly appreciate Latin American countries in part because I can manage the Spanish language. But mostly I found the people to be amazing;  gracious, humble and appreciative of the work we do for their people.  Latin American culture reflects a good work ethic and proud people with artistically diverse talents.”  -Elizabeth Lewis
