Detailed plot synopsis reviews of On The Path With Heart, In Africa with Habitat for Humanity International

This is the story of a 58 year-old widow's adventures over the five years she spent in Africa, as the low-cost housing mission, Habitat for Humanity International's Africa/Middle East correspondent. Grey finds stories everywhere; among leprosy survivors in Uganda who are becoming part of a community for the first time in years, with orphan head of households in Burundi who are beginning life over after a brutal civil war, and on the road in Botswana when her truck breaks down. Then there is the one about the mother-in-law who climbs into bed with her one night in Uganda.

Africans running Habitat programs in their communities in Uganda, Zimbabwe, and Kenya teach Grey about their culture, she finds a lot in common with a South African widow during the night she spends inside a former black township and in Kenya she learns that it's malaria that kills most Africans and elephants that African women fear most. What did Grey fear most in Africa? "Anything on four wheels."
