A vivid and warmhearted account of a women's first encounter with an extraordinary community that changed her life. Reading it, you feel as through a dark forest inhabited by bears and violent insurgents; experiencing loneliness and uncertainty; and finally forming the strong friendships and nursing the leprosy patients that have brought her back to her second home in the rural centre of India every year since.
