I am reviewing a copy of Well through FaithWords/Center Street and Netgalley:
When Sarah Thebarge applied to the Yale Physicians assistant program she told the admissions panel she would change the world someday.
Some decades later Sarah Thebarge finds herself on a plane reading up on Togo, somewhere she had not even heard of until she was asked to serve as a missionary in Togo serving at the Hospital Of Hope.
Just a year or two prior to her call to Togo, Sarah had been battling for her life, after being diagnosed with Cancer.
While in Togo Sarah experienced language difficulties, making conversations difficult and humorous.
By the time she had been there for six weeks Thebarge's French had drastically improved.
Sarah Thebarge was deeply effected by her time in Togo, watching people die of conditions that were preventable in the U.S in a hospital that lacked modern equipment.
While in Togo Sarah Thebarge would battle Malaria, shed face the loss of patients. She'd see the realities of the conditions in Togo, the lack of medicines and medical equipment.
I give Well five out of five stars!
Happy Reading!
