I really enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down. I loved how she tied science and faith together, and especially loved what she said about it being our JOB to seek the answers for illnesses. It left me with alot to think about, and perhaps a difference perspective about medical research. I would recommend this book to anyone.

This is a reveting tale of both the research in the Amzonian jungle as well as the frustration with the cause of Mad Cow disease & other diseases like it. The information on the diseases, called prion disease, was fascinating. The relationship between physical illness & God's desire to heal was challenging. I highly recommend this book. It's a really good story & if you have eyes to see beyond the story, it's an excellent allagory.
