Narrator Laura Jennings recounts the story of the creation of Nazareth Hospital, a Catholic medical center that was established in the late 1940s in the impoverished village of Mokama in India. The author is an op-ed editor for THE NEW YORK TIMES, and her Indian-born mother attended the nursing school attached to this hospital. With a steady pace and conversational tone, Jennings superbly narrates an amazing story that sounds like a novel. Six nuns leave Kentucky and brave harrowing traveling conditions across India. In Mokama, they transform a warehouse into a thriving hospital that provides basic medical care and medications, as well as surgical services, to a community that previously had little access to such care. This well-researched audiobook will fascinate listeners. M.J. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2022]
