Product description

Review

“Poignant and powerful.” Starred review

(Kirkus Reviews)

“Achingly real.” Editorial board favourite

(Boston Globe)

“There are many beautiful books by Westerners about living in Africa…. The best ones put the readers in the middle of unfamiliar terrain and make them smell it and hear it. This is one of those books.”

(Minneapolis Star Tribune)

"I shed several tears while reading this book. Monique and the Mango Rains is a true story that rides the ebb and flow of womanhood in Mali. It also sparks inspiration that differences can be made, and are made, when the right ingredients are combined."

(Midwives Magazine)

"Holloway has a fresh and sensitive way of relating events… what she sees, hears, what people say, what she learns and the impact of the different seasons…. The postscript describes [her and her husband's] return to Mali in 1999 and again in 2007. They continue to support Clinique Monique in the nearby village of Kouri. You could, too." Mmegi (Botswana)

(Mmegionline)

Review

“Midwives see the heights and depths, the ecstasy and tragedy of life… A book of faith, hope, courage and, above all, love.”

(Jennifer Worth)
