Адаптированная книга на английском языке «Between two worlds by Stephen Rabley». Аудиокнига на английском.
Joanna Jimbuku is a nurse. She lives and works in north Australia. Her boss is Bob Mills — a Flying Doctor. He and Joanna go everywhere in The Bluebird, Bob’s plane. One morning in August, Joanna answers the phone. “Hello,” she says. “Doctor Mills’ office.” Then … “A baby? Yes, I see. And you’re in Woomara. OK — we can be there in half an hour.”
Five minutes later, Joanna and Bob are in The Bluebird. “How old is this baby?” asks Bob. “Eighteen months,” says Joanna. After a moment Bob looks at her. “Woomara’s near your home town, isn’t it?” “Yes, that’s right.” Joanna smiles. “It’s a very small place.” She looks out of the window. “There it is,” she says. “Can you see? Between those trees and the river.”
Down on the ground, eight or nine people are waiting for the Flying Doctor. They take him and Joanna to a small house. The baby’s mother — Jane — is inside it.
Bob looks at the little girl for twenty minutes. Then he says, “I’m sorry, but Mary is very, very ill. It’s her heart. She must go to a hospital in Sydney.” “Sydney!” says Jane.
“Yes.” Bob puts his hand on the woman’s arm. “But it’s OK — you can go with her.” Jane looks sad. “How? I’ve got six other children. I can’t just leave them.” Suddenly Joanna has an idea. “Wait a minute!” she says. “Why don’t / go to Sydney with Mary? After all, I’m on holiday for two weeks after today.” “Good idea,” says the Flying Doctor. They look at Jane. “OK,” she says.
