 Thank you to Cindy Grove, Reference Librarian of Tewksbury Public Library, for her review.

“I recommend Mountains beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World, by Tracy Kidder.

The book focuses on a physician from Brigham & Women’s Hospital and his work with infectious disease in Haiti, especially tuberculosis. The author does a wonderful job with Dr. Farmer’s story, revealing his amazing dedication to relieving suffering.”
