The story of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the former President of Liberia and the first woman to lead an African Country. A fascinating story about a woman who fought passionately for her successes, struggled to be accepted within her own community, as a woman and as a politician but never gave up.
This is a story about Liberia, a truly unique country in West Africa with a story all of its own, and a volatile political landscape in the late 20th century.
It is her autobiography and pulls few punches but shows her resilience, defiance, her strength and her weakness. One to read for sure if you are interested in politics, geography and history. She won a Nobel Peace Prize and is truly a ground breaking human being.
