In a remote corner of West Africa, Monique Dembele saved lives and dispensed hope every day in a place where childbirth is a life-and-death matter. Monique and the Mango Rains is the compelling story of the author's decade-long friendship with Monique, an extraordinary midwife in rural Mali. It is a tale of Monique's unquenchable passion to better the lives of women and children in the face of poverty, unhappy marriages, and endless backbreaking work, as well as her tragic and ironic death. In the course of this deeply personal narrative, as readers immerse in village life and learn firsthand the rhythms of Monique's world, they come to know her as a friend, as a mother, and as an inspired woman who struggled to find her place in a male-dominated world.
