Author Dorothy Minchin-Comm has always believed that education is the great equalizer and doorway to opportunity. Add to that the equal doses of ambition, vision and a sense of service, and one will get a success story. In “Give Me This Mountain” (published by Trafford Publishing), the author creates a truly fascinating read – an inspirational story of one man’s faith journey.

The book follows the life of David Turay who was born to humble origins in Sierra Leone, a beautiful land full of natural resources but rife with corruption and greed. There he grew up and there he felt firsthand the trauma of civil war and the depredations of cruel warlords who monopolized the country’s vast supply of diamonds. Amid this chaos young David realized his dreams through a combination of inborn talent, grit and spiritual stamina.

Turay’s incredible journey begins in his tempestuous homeland and continues with the culmination of his achieving his dream of becoming a highly trained surgeon and having a family. In between, lie years of frustration and hardship. Practicing in the United States, however, he can help his stricken homeland financially even though he cannot live there again.

The book shows readers that nothing in life, great or small, can be had without the requisite courage and faith.
