Product Details

Praise

“A vivid history . . . The author offers candid, sympathetic portraits of the doctors and nurses who arrived through the years to staff the hospital and especially of the six original founders. . . . An inspiring story of faith and dedication.”
—Kirkus

“An inspiring story about six determined women who defied all odds and changed the world.”
—Nicholas D. Kristof, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and bestselling coauthor of Half the Sky

“Sisters of Mokama
is a moving story about a group of indomitable women, beautifully told by a writer of exceptional talent.”
—Amitav Ghosh, author of Sea of Poppies

“Once I started this inspiring and unforgettable story, I couldn’t put it down! ‘Six nuns from Kentucky went to India to open a hospital’ sounds like the start of a bad joke, but it’s true: The American frontier spirit led six remarkable women to care for patients in one of the poorest parts of India, in the process opening a nursing school that trained the author’s mother. A remarkable tale well told.”
—Theresa Brown, PhD, RN, New York Times bestselling author of The Shift
