    1. Thebarge is a physician assistant who went to Togo, West Africa, to work in a mission hospital for three months. She shares her experiences, her observations, and spiritual lessons learned. Her studies in journalism show as this is a very well written memoir of a difficult time.Her stories of the people she met are heart warming and heart breaking. Her buying a soccer ball for local boys was a heart warming experience. Her losing so many of her patients was just heart breaking.I was surprised at [...]


    2. Solid two and a half stars.The first quarter of this book felt like the author patting herself on the back for her decision to spend three months working at a hospital in Togo, Africa for three months. Almost like she’s checking it off her Christian bucket list. There’s also a bit of self-promotion for her previous book. I couldn’t help think of the scripture in Matthew 6 that says do not let your right hand know what your left is doing when giving to the needy.When Thebarge finally arrive [...]


    3. In Well, Sarah Thebarge immerses us in her three-month experience of working as a Physicians’ Assistant in a missionary hospital in Togo, West Africa. From her first days of climate and culture shock to her trip back home, she shares not only what she sees, hears, and smells, but also what she feels on many levels—physically, emotionally, and spiritually.Many chapters are short. Some are narrative—wonderful storytelling. Others read like essays that speak to large themes of love and the me [...]


    4. I was first introduced to Sarah Thebarge when I read her memoir, The Invisible Girls (2013). That story was so powerful, beautifully written, and heart-wrenching. When I heard she had written a new book called WELL, I knew immediately I would have to read it. I devoured the book in a few days and was incredibly taken with it. Sarah's writing is deep, heartfelt, passionate, real, transparent, and overall, so articulate and moving.In the pages of WELL, Sarah takes us on her journey to Togo and sha [...]


    5. I’m not a big fan of the missionaries — religious organizations that go into the developing world simply to convert people to the Christian faith, rather than leave any other tangible offerings. Luckily, it turns out that author Sarah Thebarge kinda feels the same way. Her sophomore book, Well, is a spiritual memoir about time spent volunteering her medical expertise in a West African hospital essentially run by missionaries. While it’s not the thrust of the book’s narrative, Thebarg [...]


    6. Sarah Thebarge is a Yale-trained physician assistant. Well is her story of her spiritual and vocational calling to medical missions work in Togo, West Africa.Well is a different book than most books that I have read. This book is not divided into chapters. Well is Thebarge's story told pretty much cover to cover of her trip to Togo to work at the Hospital of Hope, a conservative Baptist missions-run hospital in Mango, Togo. Thebarge shares her medical challenges in treating the local people in g [...]


    7. "Well" is a book that will have you in tears and unable to put it down. It is one of the most, moving powerful reads of 2017! Courageous, vulnerable and daring, Sarah took me from my comfort zone and made me realize the heartbeat of Jesus again. So often in the Western culture, we find ourselves being stuck in a consumerism mindset where everything is about "me or seeing what is best to move us forward," but Sarah challenges the reader to look at life in a different way, to look at people with c [...]

    9. Sarah Thebarge, author of The Invisible Girls, takes an opportunity to practice medicine as a physician’s assistant in Mango, Togo in West Africa.

    10. Well: Healing Our Beautiful, Broken World from a Hospital in South Africa by Sarah Thebarge is a touching memoir about the author’s experience as a physician assistant in West Africa. Thebarge is a skilled writer, using her words to beautifully illustrate true events and make her story come to life. Because Thebarge describes medical scenarios in detail, the book is very informative from a medical standpoint. It is also a culturally educational book, and I learned a lot more about the culture [...]


    11. Well is the story of Sarah Thebarge, a Yale-trained physicians assistant, who nearly died of breast cancer and her story of Medical Missions in West Africa. While telling of the intense struggles and hardships faced Well is so much more. Well is a story of Love. It is an anthem call to us to exhibit love as we never have before. "Love looks around. Love looks around and sees the world with compassion. Love looks around and sees the marginalized invisible people who are often overlooked. Love loo [...]

Inspiring book on Sarah's journey to Togo and her difficult, exhausting, and life changing time serving as a Physician Assistant in a missionary hospital in the town of Mango in northern Togo.

When she arrived at the airport, she encountered a French Man who instantly offered to help her with her luggage, but she immediately shooed him away. This happened countless times until Sarah yelled at the French Man to stop.My full review here shimiracole/book/sarah


    14. Loved this book. Raw, authentic, moving. Sarah's other book, The Invisible Girls, is one of my favorites as well. I'm grateful for the questions this author asks throughout the book, causing me to pause, reflect, and question. Grateful for strong Christian women like Sarah!

    16. This is a very moving, well written memoir. I cried through parts, and wondered how she stayed. The medical parts ( I am a nurse practitioner) are fascinating, and the suffering she witnessed is devastating .
