Doctor Monica Murphy quits her cutting-edge Minneapolis medical practice to work at Catholic medical mission in a decaying hill station in northern India. There, she confronts questions about the nature of faith, religious imperialism, the troubled position of Westerners in developing countries, and the growth of individual consciousness. You will find Traveling With Spirits to be an exciting, nuanced novel about trespassing, welcoming, and the ever-precarious luck of the innocent.
