The White Ravens Award 2007 Against the will of her boyfreind and her parents, Silvia, a young medicine student, travels to India to work in a hospital as volunteer during her holidays. Confronted with the social reality in a country so utterly foreign to her, the young woman soon becomes aware of the responsibility of every human being in a world that is growing closer and closer together. In a realistic style, the novel describes the personal tensions that Silvia experiences "between the two worlds". At the same time, it offers a thorough insight into the work of non-governmental organisations and their cross-border commitment. Rights sold to Mexico, Korea and Brazil.
