In 1956, Sydney nurse Margaret Watts and her husband Horrie set out on the adventure of a lifetime:mission service in Vanuatu (then the New Hebrides), followed by further years serving on the island of Bougainville in the then-Territory of New Guinea. In these letters sent home to family in Australia, Margaret gives a thorough account of daily life working as a missionary nurse in remote areas of the Pacific.
This is a remarkable book about a remarkable couple. While including the frustrations and loneliness, this book is redolent with the adventures and joys of being given the opportunity to serve as missionaries for Christ. This book is a 'must Read' for anyone who seeks a glimpse of what real missionaries have done" - Dr John Hammond, retired missionary and educator.
