This book is a page turner. It is a memoir of a childhood and a lifetime as it travels through times fraught with riches, war, violence, denial and love.
It also offers a wonderful history lesson on Monrovia, Liberia, and the USA.
This story is enlightening and entertaining. Ms. Cooper's story is inspirational, perhaps more so told in her voice. I learned both about Liberian history and a woman who overcame incredible odds to be able to share her story with us. A beautiful author, narrator and person.
