    When life depends on forces outside your control, forces that are sometimes benevolent and sometimes oppressive, it is easy to see where the idea of an Old Testament God comes from. Kris said she was moved to write the book when Monique died in the throes of labor, with her fifth child. Death of babies and children, death of sick people, death that comes with drought or too much rain, death of the few people lucky enough to reach old age. There is nothing but death. But at the same time, her education was very rudimentary. And of course excision becomes even more dangerous for women when it comes time to have children.

    Kris was responsible for maintaining and renewing the birthing center, she did works that required too much time, also she was promoting the health improvement of the place. And of course excision becomes even more dangerous for women when it comes time to have children. There is no reliance on other parts of the country to provide food or water. The only man who could was the village clerk, and because he had this advantage, he spent years cheating Monique out of much of her salary. Reading about this tiny Malian village that depends on forces completely out of their hands just to survive, I can understand better about the older version of God. She weighted the babies to show the mothers if their children were in a healthy weight range or if they were in the dangers of being malnourished.

    She even went to medical training. We still clean had running water. Instead what struck me about the book is how, through an informal ethnography, Kris so accurately highlights the very local realities which can make or break a development programme or project. Not that she always succeeded. He can turn on a person at the slightest provocation, or at no provocation at all.
