    About The Book

    Follow the remarkable odyssey of Maria Weiss, who spent eighteen long years in an isolated leper colony in Paraguay. Her vivid stories, as told to Maureen Burn, read like parables. They remind us that wisdom does not always come from the highly educated, and that faith and solidarity often flourish where one least expects. While recounting her colorful daily life, Maria Weiss illustrates profound issues of faith, showing how God works unseen even in tragedy, how he lifts up the humble, and how we can trust him to answer and solve our problems, even if his timing isn’t ours.
