Well: Healing Our Beautiful, Broken World from a Hospital in South Africa by Sarah Thebarge is a touching memoir about the author’s experience as a physician assistant in West Africa. Thebarge is a skilled writer, using her words to beautifully illustrate true events and make her story come to life. Because Thebarge describes medical scenarios in detail, the book is very informative from a medical standpoint. It is also a culturally educational book, and I learned a lot more about the culture of Togo.
Well is a great book for people who have a heart for world missions. Throughout the story, Sarah aims to achieve wellness for others – not only physical wellness, but spiritual wellness. Sarah’s love for Jesus Christ and her desire to spread his love is evident. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Sarah’s amazing, inspirational story, and I loved reading about the lives that she impacted.
