In despair, seeking meaning in her life and in her husband's death, she accepted an invitation to visit Haiti as part of a pilgrimage of reverse mission, to serve the poor as a means to transform the providers. This is a moving account of her immersion in the West's most impoverished nation. Gently and viscerally, Trost describes her experiences in a hospice and in the horrific slums of Cit Soleil. As she struggles to make sense of such extreme conditions existing so near the US, readers discover with her the healing power of reaching out.
