Summary
Two very different women, an upscale American named Mary and a middle-class Englishwoman named Martha, form an unlikely bond following the losses of their only children from malaria contracted in Africa. Battling their lingering grief and the strains on their marriages, the two work together to raise awareness of malaria while recovering their sense of purpose. A story of how ordinary people can make a difference in influencing social policy and affecting positive change
