Bridget Fitzgerald had gone to the Sudan to help the refugees get medical treatment after being attacked by the rebels. She was running from her past where her childhood had not been the best, although there were many happy memories; with parents who were arguing and a Father who was cold and dismissive. In the hospital where she was working, she had made several wonderful friends and doctors. Working 24/7 made for deep exhaustion but when someone lived, it was worth it. However, the rebels overcome her hospital and she is evacuated after being shot. By the time she gets out of the hospital, she wonders if she will ever go back to being a doctor much less one in Africa. However, she can’t help but wonder about her friends. Now she is off to other adventures which will eventually lead her to America and then to the Vatican.
The trials that face Bridget are amazing and they make you continue to read and to believe that this is a real woman. The characters are very realistic and you feel you begin to know them. The book is long but difficult to put down. It is a wonderful book.
You get look at someone who is not only deeply committed to her religion, but to the betterment of others. Her capacity to love and give is beyond measure and her understanding of herself was interesting. You really need to pay attention when you read this book, you need to listen to her story and her connection to God. Someday there may well be women priests and priests being allowed to marry. Hopefully that will come sooner rather than later.
Read the book, it will make you want to be a better person.
There are often times when you are reaching out to God for answers and you simply cannot feel him. I liked the fact this book addressed this. But God's love is always there. Being a person of God does not mean you will not have tough times. It does mean his love is there to help us get through those difficult times and we can look forward to a time where we will join him and be surrounded by his love and by all those that love him.
