  • Ms. Rosenmeier's tendency to insert herself at the center of the story ... at first seems slightly immodest. Gradually, it suggests a deeply unsettling level of self-involvement.

  • There's a lot of heartbreak in this chronicle of Dina Rosenmeier, a Danish woman hoping to follow in her mother's humanitarian ways and aid needy orphans in India.
