Publisher's summary

In this inspiring work, Dominique Lapierre tells stories of extraordinary love and heroism - performed by ordinary people. Deep within one of the poorest sections of Calcutta, Lapierre found that this city, which produced Mother Teresa, had many other selfless inhabitants. Hear about a Polish Catholic priest who came to share and ease the plight of the impoverished, an American doctor who came to treat people who were without medical resources, and an Assamese nurse who became an Angel of Mercy to the afflicted. Best selling author Lapierre has woven these amazing stories into an epic tale of human benevolence and hope.

Beautiful

Each book I've read by Dominique Lapierre, leaves me 'in awe'! Beyond Love, magnificent also. The City of Joy, I just could not stop listening to it. I have purchased the book for two friends, whom I know will find this book so beautiful and will keep it close to their hearts.
Thank You
