Their mission is to convert the native Indian population from the corruption and oppression of the Catholic Church which has crushed them into poverty and idolatry. But life in Cuzco is hard; disease, poverty and alcohol claim many lives. Beatrice and her husband, Mac, face both fierce opposition and physical hardship, which tests their relationship to its limits.In this fictional memoir, based on true events, we follow Beatrice through both good times and bad, in a life-time of self-discovery.
