The book is a true story, written by Katie, an American girl who moved to Uganda when she was eighteen. There she works in an orphanage teaching Kindergarten until she becomes a missionary and adopts a bunch of kids. The book follows her life up to the age of twenty three and illustrates the struggles and joys she faces. She is a Christian girl and quite a lot of the book emphasises this, but you can read this book without faith and still love it to pieces. I cried so much in this book also, but mostly they were happy, uplifting and smiley tears.
