Author, Bible teacher, and musician Minter (The Fitting Room) was at a crossroads when she was invited on a trip to the Amazon. Her music career hadn't gone as she had planned. As she comes to know the Amazon and its people and watches them cope with the tragedy and unpredictability of their world, Minter begins to feel the struggles of the river people cutting new channels through her spirit. In between trips, she begins to realize her own smallness in the grand scheme of God's plans, re-evaluates opportunities to help her neighbors, and slowly comes to grips with her own need for approval. She writes with candor about the stories of the pastors and villagers she meets, as well as the weight of loss that enveloped members of their team over the course of a painful year. Though Minter can seem self-absorbed at times, particularly early on, her ability to be honest about her struggles to relate what she was learning in the Amazon to her need for significance proves winsome.
