    1. just read this in one sitting. i couldn't put it down. the writing is a bit rough but maxwell's heart and message come through nonetheless.

    2. One woman's complete change in life vision began with a simple visit to Africa. From a corporate marketing executive to a having a passion for the hungry and AIDS stricken living in trash houses, Janine Maxwell chronicles her amazing transformation.
