I don t remember the last time a book made me cry I don t remember the last time I read a memoir that I couldn t put down The Will of Heaven by Debbie Ethell managed to do both Her story of overcoming a debilitating addiction to alcohol and fulfilling a lifelong dream of working with wild elephants is nothing less than extraordinaryEthell fell in love with elephants when she was eight years old She saw an interview with Daphne Sheldrick founder of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust whose mission was to establish and maintain a Kenyan reserve for elephants who were victims of ivory poaching in the 1970s and 1980s Their goal was to save injured elephants and orphaned babies and release them back into the wild Ethell was obsessed with these creatures and and started following their lives She kept a journal of each elephant she was introduced to beginning with Eleanor As Ethell put it this was a hobby with a few elephants that blossomed into a large research project with nearly 400 No different than the abused elephants Ethell also fell in love with alcohol to numb herself when school bullying rendered her contemplating suicide By the time she was twenty six she was a full blown alcoholic and had lost touch with everything she had cared aboutIn The Will of Heaven Ethell is not gentle as she describes her ugly downhill slide into alcoholism By the time she was 26 Ethell says she had been arrested times than she could remember and she had judges in her life than friends Alcoholism had robbed her of everyone and everything she had once cared about When she had run out of every other option Ethell moved into the treatment facility that changed her life She lived there a year and moved to a half way house for another year Slowly her life began to turn around and she was able to see a future without alcohol Once she was on her own she opened her own very profitable business Sober and supporting herself she knew something important was missing the elephants If she could find a way to include them her life would mean something That story is The Will of HeavenFrom the first page we are drawn into the dual worlds of the African elephants Ethell loves and her struggle as an alcoholic whose life is out of control We are exposed to the two worlds of horrific suffering We learn about Sheldriks and their unimaginable foresight and determination to start rescuing the elephants We begin to understand how fascinating intelligent and caring elephants are In their natural environment they show a humanity for other elephants beyond what many humans show for each other Their warmth and strength was what Ethell needed to meet her own challenges This was a tough story to tell and Ethell s writing was definitely up to the challenge Because she began keeping journals following elephants and their handlers her writing is hauntingly beautiful and retains that innocent love of the child and her fascination with something so foreign When she talks about her struggle with alcohol it is impossible to not ache for her When you are hurting for her and the elephants you cannot put the book down She never becomes maudlin or self serving Her pain anxiety and compassion are real Her honest account of her battle with alcoholism the fight of the elephants from being fodder for ivory hunters and finally the necessity of starting over doing the things many of us take for granted After flunking out of every school she had attended because of her drinking Ethell knew she needed a college education She had to set aside her 41 years old ego Her biggest steps were to sign up for a remedial math class and learn to simply juggle a city bus system She found patience she never knew she had It was two years before she even got near her first science class But she was so determined At one point I wondered whether her fight for her own survival and eventually her fight for the elephants could have happened without the other I don t think so The Will of Heaven is a great book the unexpected gem that I didn t want to end Long after I have finished reading it I realized that it was a book that wasn t going to let go of me Debbie Ethell s debut into the world of published writing is a gift to all of us She says this is the first of three and I am ready for Part Two
