"When Haregwoin Teferra?s husband and twenty-three-year-old daughter died within a few years of each other, her middle-class life in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, was shattered. Bereft and with little to live for, Haregwoin became a recluse. Her self-imposed exile to a hut near her daughter?s grave was interrupted when a priest delivered first one, then another, orphaned teenager into her care. To everyone?s surprise, the children thrived, and so did Haregwoin" -- publisher website (March 2007).

Very informative and heartwrenching on the situation of children, orphans or abandoned, in Ethiopia in the mid-first decade of this century and the lack of meds for AIDS in Africa
