This book is a true story of how a secretary in Washington, D.C. became a King in Ghana. It is a great example of how one person can make a difference! When she returns to her native village, she finds no running water, high school, or even a doctor. She also has to bury the former King, which she doesn’t have the money for. During her first couple of years as King, she finds the strength to change all that.
I loved the balance of men and woman, Christianity and Paganism, modern comforts and simple living, United States and Africa.
