Monique and the Mango Rains is a Must Read

I sometimes think public health experts have doctor-envy because they come up with such cerebral, unemotional terms--like maternal mortality--to talk about issues of life and death.

They would do better just to encourage everyone to read a book like Monique and the Mango Rains by Kris Hollowell. It's about the friendship that develops between a Peace Corps volunteer and a midwife in Mali. A quick read, very engaging, full of joy and sorrow. Makes you want to get out and do something!
