|About the Book|
This was Mrs. Gerstners first novel in which she tells the fictional story of three people who are isolated in a jungle mission: a missionary doctor, his wife, and the doctors nurse. The authors skill weaves a beautiful story of these missionaries, sharply characterized against the pagan setting of Indian native life. In their struggles for faith, the stark realism, and the entangling problems, each finally realizes the contentment found in the Great Healer, the One for whom they labor as they work with the natives of the village. Being the daughter of missionary parents herself, Mrs. Gerstner draws upon her own experiences to tell this fascinating story.
