A Novel of a Young Evangelist Who Becomes a Medical Missionary
Benson Ware- physician, missionary, one-time faith healer- would never forget the poverty and misery that had enveloped him as a boy. The son of sharecroppers, Ben had grown up in the Florida scrublands, where the people literally lived on the edge of starvation. He believed that his escape from those dread surroundings was an act of mercy, a gift he sought to acknowledge by living a life of self-sacrifice. his biggest sacrifice was for Ellen A Maynard, the wealthy, sickly girl he married, for it was Rana Norton he truly loved- the beautiful and desirable Rana who was his for only one night. The path of selflessness he chose led him to turn the other cheek when his wife's brother, who had fiercely opposed their marriage, used all the treachery and cunning of his twisted mind to thwart Ben's success. Even the threat of death did not stop Dr. Ware from performing the operation that saved Richard Maynard's life.
