Stuart Daniels has hit bottom. Once a celebrated and award-winning photojournalist, he is reeling from debt, a broken marriage, and crippling depression. The source of Stuart's grief is his most famous photo, a snapshot of brutality in the dangerous Congo. A haunting image that indicts him as a passive witness to gross injustice.

Stuart is given a one last chance to redeem his career: A make-or-break assignment covering the AIDS crisis in a small African country. It is here that Stuart meets Adanna, a young orphan fighting for survival in a community ravaged by tragedy and disease. But in the face of overwhelming odds, Adanna finds hope in a special dream, where she is visited by an illuminated man and given a precious gift.

Now, in a dark place that's a world away from home, Stuart will once again confront the harsh reality of a suffering people in a forgotten land. And as a chance encounter becomes divine providence, two very different people will find their lives forever changed.

This has to be one of the most powerful books I have ever read! I was both heartbroken and uplifted at the same time. It takes great writing to accomplish that at the same time. I can't recommend this book enough. There is so much to say, yet hard to put it in to words as the book evokes so much emotion. Suffice it to say that this is a must read, one you won't soon forget, and one you will think about long after you close the book.


Brought together in an online community known as Boomer Babes Rock, Susan, Patricia, and Mary form a fast friendship, even though they live in different parts of the country and lead completely different lives. In the Va-Va-Va Boom series, vibrant, successful fifty-somethings share laughter, tears, and advice as they pop into each others' lives via the Internet-and the airlines!
