A young doctor who has devoted his life to serving those suffering from leprosy is struck by a terminal illness. He is only 40, when this diagnosis threatens to crush everything he holds so dear - his dreams, his faith, and even his own uniquely optimistic and joyous nature. I Will Lie Down in Peace is a touching account of how Dr Kumar Jesudasan and his young family cope with the confusion, anger, pain and loneliness brought on by this illness. The manner in which Kumar converts his painful confrontation with death into a positive and healing experience is told in this warm and moving book by his wife, Usha. The proceeds from the sale of this book will go towards the work Dr Kumar dedicated his life to: the care of those suffering from leprosy.
