“Kerstetter is a compelling writer, and not just of war stories… For readers who enjoy war memoirs and for anyone looking for a moving life story.” —Library Journal

“Kerstetter has written a fascinating and nuanced edge-of-your-seat tale about the humanity of medicine amidst the inhumanity of war. Your heart will be pounding on every page. I couldn’t put this wonderful book down.”
Matt McCarthy, author of The Real Doctor Will See You Shortly

“An inspiring memoir.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Jon Kerstetter has written a gripping story that serves as a harsh reminder of the gritty reality of war and the pain of personal loss. More than that, however, this book is an inspirational tale of the resilience of the human spirit that will linger in your mind and heart long after you put it down.” —Ken Isaacs, Vice President, Samaritan’s Purse
