Summary
  • "Mallory Hammond is determined not to let her boyfriend, parents, or anyone else get in the way of her goal to save a life. She had that chance when she was a teenager, and the opportunity slipped away, leaving a void she's desperate to fill. Then a new friend she met online offers her the chance she has dreamed of. But she'll have to leave behind everyone she loves to take it"--

Now she informs her parents and her boyfriend Tate that she will donate a kidney to save the life of Majida, the daughter of her Pakistani pen pal Abdul.

Motivated by the naive trust, Mallory now faces betrayal and life-threatening danger in Pakistan's lawless Pashtun tribal regions. Her only hope in this hopeless situation is a loving heavenly Father, whose presence sustains her
