A doctor, she found a real vocation too as a Maryknoll Sister. Tells how three Maryknoll Sisters, working with the barest essentials and often without them, became the core of a hard-working, tremendously successful team of workers from every walk of life and from many different countries. The clinic which they started in 1951 treated 100 patients a morning, but by 1954 was treating about 2600 a day. Originally housed by makeshift methods - old cartons, tin cans flattened for the roof - the book ends with the construction of a new 160-bed hospital - the largest in Korea.
