Grant Lock directed Afghanistan’s largest eye care program. Until he himself became blind. He returns home to a society with its own blind spots: myopic attitudes to Islam, mental health and what makes us human. After battling corruption, injustice and disadvantage in the deserts, mountains and cities of Pakistan and Afghanistan, Lock confronts challenges—both intimate and global—with courage and compassion.
 
Riveting. To his experience in some of the world’s most troubled places, Lock brings a bushman’s wit and wisdom. Lock writes about Islam with authority and insight. - JOHN ANDERSON AO, Former Deputy Prime Minister of Australia
 
Grant Lock is master of the ripping yarn. This smorgasbord of human experience spans centuries and continents and embraces themes common to us all: hostility and hospitality, disaster and hope, the mundane and the marvelous. -  DR BERNIE POWER, Author of Understanding Jesus and Muhammad.
 
Inspirational. I could sit in a pub all day listening to Grant Lock. - HAYDN RADFORD, Freelance Writer
 
I thank God for you every day. - FARIDA, Afghan widow
