Product Description

Sixteen-year-old Khmer dancer Devi and her little brother, Rithy, flee in terror after Ban Rath, formerly with the Khmer Rouge and the Killing Fields and now a trafficker in peasant girls, blows up their family hut, killing their father and grandmother. But where can they go, when nowhere seems safe from Ban Rath's reach?

Tom Whitby, M.D., exhales in frustration on his flight to Bangkok. What induced him, the busiest oncologist in Denver, to fly off on this colossal waste of time-to provide medical help to the people of Phnom Penh in Cambodia? The answer, of course, is his wife, Jane Mackenzie Whitby, who spent her girlhood in Southeast Asia, and her father Dr. Mackenzie, the renowned missionary and world authority on iodine deficiency disorders. But what does Tom have to gain, playing holy-roller in some hellhole?

Author Bio

Keith M. McDonald, M.D., went to Cambodia on a medical mission in 2001 and has returned two times since. There he learned of the plight of girls in that country. “Many streets are lined with brothels, home to girls in their teens, who often have been kidnapped. I wrote A Time to Mourn, A Time to Dance to help people understand.” He also learned how foreign and Cambodian Christians work to alleviate the plight of these girls. “One such project was a school where the young people achieved literacy and, at the same time, learned traditional Khmer dance. And the idea for the character of Devi was born.” Dr. McDonald also established “The Salt of the Earth” program through The Cambodian Medical Mission, a division of Global Connection International.


A powerful story of redemption seen through the eyes of a compassionate medical doctor. — Dr. Jim Groen, President, Global Connection International

Spotlights the terror of human trafficking in Southeast Asia. A recommended read for all who want a better grasp of the tragedy of sex slavery and a glimpse of the drama of fighting it. McDonald’s book should be in every Bible college bookstore and church library. — Len and Mary Rosenberg, Co-founders of Ministry Architecture, Inc., parents of Joel C. Rosenberg, best-selling author of The Copper Scroll, Epicenter, and other titles.

    If you are unable to go on a mission to Cambodia, this is a must read! Dr. McConald's insight into these precious ones lives and hearts is rare. My wife and I have worked in Cambodia, established a small buisness Khmer Krafts there and have established a non-profit to help indiginous ministries - Lydia Cambodia. We identified with the Author in some way on every page. God Bless you as you read this gripping story - may God stir your hearts to the great needs of this people as they begin to rebuild their society. We pray God will become and important part of this culture!
