Review "This soulful story of tenacity is immensely inspiring." - Publisher's Weekly"A gap-year trip becomes a life-changing experience when 19-year-old Doyne from New Jersey falls in love with the lost children of Nepal. As she recounts in this moving memoir, Doyne was driven to build a refuge for homeless children, where they can be safe, fed, and loved... In this inspiring account, Doyne reminds us, "All we can do, as life rushes in and out, is hold each other close and let love shape us." - Booklist"Maggie has the courage to act for the good when she sees a need and the conscience to use her privilege to empower others. She is a heart warrior of the first order, and I'm grateful and honored to count her among my dearest friends." - Cheryl Strayed "She is what I wish I could be-what I wish we all could be. Her story has already inspired countless thousands of people, and it's time the world had a book about her." - Elizabeth Gilbert Between the Mountain and the Sky shows us the goodness that is possible when a single person--regardless of age--takes action to help another and, in the process, changes the lives of hundreds. Maggie’s story begins in suburban New Jersey, in a comfortable middle-class family that supports her decision to travel the world during a gap year before starting college. During her travels, the trajectory of her life alters when she has a surprise encounter with a Nepali girl breaking rocks in a quarry. Maggie decides to invest her life savings of five thousand dollars to buy a piece of land and open a children’s home in Nepal.That home becomes Kopila Valley Children’s Home, and eventually, the nonprofit Maggie launches, the BlinkNow Foundation, also starts the Kopila Valley School, which provides tuition-free education for more than four hundred students. Maggie and BlinkNow’s work have been recognized around the world for their innovative, sustainable work.However, this book isn’t a how-to for fledging philanthropists or nonprofit founders--it’s a coming-of-age story about a young woman suspended between two worlds, as well as the love, loss, healing, and hope she experiences along the way. And Maggie’s inspiring, intimate tale shows readers an important truth: the power to change the world exists within all of us. About the Author Maggie Doyne is cofounder of the BlinkNow Foundation and Kopila Valley Children’s Home and School in Surkhet, Nepal. At age nineteen, she used her babysitting money and worked with the local community to build a home for orphaned children in war-torn Nepal. In 2010, she and her team opened a school for five hundred of the region’s most impoverished children. Throughout the past decade, BlinkNow and Kopila have worked to deepen and grow the organization through grassroots community development efforts.Her work has been championed by Pulitzer Prize--winning columnist Nicholas Kristof and the Dalai Lama, among others. The story of BlinkNow’s beginnings has been featured on the Huffington Post, VH1, MTV, and DoSomething.org. Maggie was named Glamour magazine’s Woman of the Year and was used as an example for her groundbreaking work at the Forbes 400 Summit on Philanthropy. In 2015, she was named CNN Hero of the Year.Maggie’s story carries a message of hope, love, and the possibility of how the smallest individual acts can spark huge world change. She believes that poverty, hunger, and violence will be alleviated when children are provided with their most basic needs and human rights--a loving, happy childhood, nutrition, and a quality education. She believes that this can be achieved during her lifetime.
