  • Memories

    I bought this book to remind me of our trip to Tanzania and Zanzibar last Nov. It certainly evoked pictures in my mind of the places, the people and the way of life in this part of Africa. Enjoyed it very much. Nice easy read.

  • Truly Inspiring

    I can’t believe I stayed up until 02:30 to finish this book. It is absolutely phenomenal! I love reading WWII historical novels and “After Kilimanjaro” is one with a different, refreshing twist and a more contemporary subject. Sarah is a talented, experienced, young surgeon who has lived a mostly sheltered life. First with her family and then ‘steady’ with the same guy since High School. By “accident”, Sarah embarks on a journey of self-discovery, to Tanzania. Here she finds conditions are primitive and life is fragile. Sarah encounters medical problems that are not as common in the developed world. High mortality for both mothers and infants, poor prenatal care, female genital mutations, HIV, malaria, sleeping sickness, and malnutrition, to name a few. These threaten to overwhelm the country’s medical structures. I was very interested to read about Sarah’s experiences and travels in Africa. Throw in some friendly fictional characters and an awesome Dutch doctor and you have this great story as written by Gayle Woodson. I can’t help but think about the organization “Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières”. These Doctors, medical staff and others accomplish miracles for those under privileged people around the world. They are inspiring!

    Thanks for your feedback!
