Subtitled One Man's Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal.
Published in 2011. 294 pages (including Index).
Melissa of my long-time book club raved about this book last spring - and then chose this for the group to read for our first meeting in the fall. I'm so very glad she did!
Conor Grennan's story is both a page-turner and an inspiration. It is a testament to what one person can do to make the world a better place - even if his decihttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifsion to work at an orphanage in Nepal begin simply as a way to attract women. I love, love this line:
Despite myself, I had become a parent to these kids - not because I was qualified, but because I had showed up.
I also love something that Conor's friend Liz says, "Things that are broken can be made whole."
By the way, Joy of Thoughts of Joy - who gave Little Princes five stars - says that the audiobook version is "awesome." I totally believe that - as it is read by the author himself.
