Marmalade and Machine Guns

By Chris - 17-08-2012 Rating:
In 1996, Linda Cruse was just an average working mum, with two grown-up kids who were about to leave home and a job she hated. Then, in a flash, her life changed. While driving down the motorway one evening Linda's sight suddenly and terrifyingly left her, and for a short period of time she was completely and utterly blinded.

Once she had recovered from this experience she was left with a new understanding of what it meant to be alive; she quit her job, left her house and started a new life dedicated to serving and helping others. In her truly inspirational story Marmalade and Machine Guns Linda tells of 12 years of travel teaching skills and bringing aid to those less fortunate in starving and war-torn countries.

Along the way she has met many influential people including the Dalai Lama, Prince Charles and Richard Branson as well as hundreds of aid workers each giving themselves to help others. This moving book is a tribute to all of those people who work so tirelessly to make the world a slightly better place.
