When gynecologists Catherine and Reg Hamlin left their home in Australia for Ethiopia, they never dreamed that they would establish what has been heralded as one of the most incredible medical programs in the modern world.

But more than forty years later, the couple has operated on more than 20,000 women, most of whom suffered from obstetric fistula, a debilitating childbirth injury.

In this awe-inspiring book, Dr. Catherine Hamlin recalls her life and career in Ethiopia. Her unyielding courage and solid faith will astound Christians worldwide as she talks about the people she has grown to love and the hospital that so many Ethiopian women have come to depend on. She truly is the Mother Teresa of our age.

The second edition includes an afterword that brings Catherine's story up to date and new color photographs.
