The Eye of Kuruman

Ian M. Evans

Ever since her grandfather told her stories about the famous David Livingstone, Alex Gordon has been fascinated by Africa. When offered the opportunity to work there as a public health nurse, Alex is excited. But bringing Western maternity medicine to rural Botswana and South Africa proves complicated. Alex faces unanticipated challenges: personal rivalries, water shortages, resistance, and the hidden toll of historic injustices.


In her resolve to promote culturally sensitive healthcare programs, Alex is kept emotionally buoyed by the affection of two very different men - Johan, a Dutch doctor recovering from the stress of an East African pandemic, and Fin, a black consultant with a doctorate in organizational psychology.


Wavering between such wonderful romantic and professional options, Alex must eventually decide on her future. What will her heart tell her matters the most?
