Publisher's Description

At the time Gandhi rose to prominence a young girl from Canada set out for India. She learned a language, birthed a nursing school, faced incredible odds, ran the race and pressed on to the mark of the high calling. It's the end of World War II. The world breathes a collective sigh of relief. Jean Darling, a young Canadian girl and registered nurse, sets out for India. Her journey is fraught with delays, unsanitary conditions, sickness, bedbugs, and a storm at sea, but nothing can deter her from the mission she knows she must fulfill-to start a nursing school at the Reynolds Memorial Hospital. The hospital is a former derelict school building with very little equipment and one doctor who visits in the villages with a missionary nurse. With dogged determination, Jean sets her mind to the task ahead. Political unrest swirls in the country she's been called to. Gandhi is rallying his countrymen to sever British rule and political gatherings are everywhere. Jean remains focused on her mission, with many challenges ahead: learning a new language, battling bouts of amoebic dysentery and malaria, and witnessing unbelievable superstitions. Her focus and trust in God will take her on a forty-year journey in the mission field, with a triumphant conclusion. About the Author: Mary Haskett is a writer and speaker.
