Two best selling books that tell the incredible story of the lives of Dr Catherine Hamlin and Dr Reg Hamlin and their dedication to the people of Ethiopia. 

The Hospital by the River, by John Little, traces the lives of the Hamlins, from their marriage in Australia to their journey to Ethiopia and the remarkable effort and love shown to the women they encountered and treated in Hamlin hospitals.

Healing Lives, by Sue Williams, tells the story of fistula patient Mamitu Gashe who formed a close connection to the Hamlins and has gone on to become one of the most acclaimed fistula surgeons in the world, despite never having had a day's schooling.

Both books are filled with moving stories of courage, loss, joy and the power to overcome adversity in the most difficult of circumstances.  A must read for all Hamlin supporters.
