A Midwife Abroad by Avalon Weston

An adventure that began at night, in an English country lane, beside a red phone box, leads Annie the Midwife to her dream job in southern Africa. She loves this new life and writes to her Australian sister of births, elephants, malaria and sunshine.

Gradually though, she realises that something is wrong. Mothers and babies are dying, when they should not. A plot emerges, drastic action is required. The problem is solved in Africa. But Annie knows that the story began in England and she returns home to finish the job.

She faces danger and violence, the trail leads, via Splendival, a most respectable summer festival, back to her own hospital.
