Product Details



“Team Broken Earth is one of Canada’s greatest exports. Andrew Furey tells the story of its founding in vivid, dramatic detail.” —Rick Mercer
“Passionate, evocative, and ultimately hopeful—a much needed antidote to a world wrestling with turmoil and uncertainty. Furey writes with an honesty and urgency that add tremendous depth to the storytelling. He doesn’t evade difficult questions about the complexities of humanitarian aid in disaster zones but embraces them, offering a rich and nuanced portrait of what it truly means to ‘help.'” —Dr. Samantha Nutt, founder and president of War Child Canada and War Child USA
“I have always believed that the call to public life and service to others is one of the noblest endeavours in our society. In today’s cynical world, it is refreshing and inspiring to read the incredible selfless journey of Dr. Andrew Furey. From his humble roots on one island answering the call for help on another island, Dr. Furey walks the talk of the Hippocratic Oath—Into whatever homes I go, I will enter them for the benefit of the sick. Dr. Furey sees hope and a future where others do not and answers the call to help his brothers and sisters in need. In these challenging times, this book will leave you believing in the fact that individually we can make a difference. Hope makes a difference.”—The Right Honourable Jean Chrétien
“Furey’s journey from well-intentioned naiveté, through the darkest horror, to ethical resolve, is deeply reminiscent of my own journey in Rwanda. Despite the enormity of the need, the relentlessness of the adversity, is Furey’s indefatigable, inextinguishable hope.” —Lieutenant-General (ret) the Honourable Roméo Dallaire
“There are lots of stories about giving back. Andrew Furey’s story is about giving your all. Hope in the Balance shows us just how small our world is and how much of an impact one person can make. The book is exactly what we need in these trying times.” —Mark Critch
