Sweet Liberia, Lessons from the Coal Pot

By Susan D. Peters

Biography & memoir, Religion & spirituality, General non-fiction | Paperback, eBook


Sweet Liberia, Lessons from the Coal Pot is a delightful, painfully honest memoir that chronicles the thick slice of humanity sandwiched between Liberia’s April 12, 1980 coup and the Civil War in 1989 from which the author's family was lucky to escape with their lives. This touching memoir is set against the author’s personal growth, her cultural struggles, and her triumphs, and is an informative, personally revealing, and often-comical account of her family’s eleven-year journey immersed in the rich culture of Liberia, West Africa.
