Publisher Comments:

I have to wonder-if the AIDS crisis in Papua New Guinea is so hopeless, what difference will it make whether Aunt Sid writes a good story about it or not? What difference will it make that Im here with her? I ask God to do something miraculous for both of us in this third world country. I ask God to use me…

After her life-changing journey to Ireland, twenty-year-old Maddie Chase feels ready for whatever she and her Aunt Sid will find on their trip to Papua New Guinea. But when she sets foot on the beautiful South Pacific island, she cant help but notice the sense of hopelessness around her.

Through their investigative reporting, Maddie and Aunt Sid learn that this developing country is literally dying of AIDS. As Maddie delves deeper into the culture and history of the land-and develops relationships with nationals who are eager to share their lives-she finds a tangled past that could help to explain the current health crisis.

Will Maddie be able to see past the darkness to offer light to these gracious island people? Join Maddie on her latest international adventure as she learns that maybe it is possible for one person to change history.

Synopsis:

The second book in the Notes from a Spinning Planet series follows 19-year-old Maddie Chase's adventure in Papua, New Guinea, where she discovers the power of hope with her journalist aunt.
