Publisher's Description

Anita's college anthropology class in the 1960s led to an incredible journey with God, as she eventually married her college professor, who was also an African chief. God sustained her interracial, cross-cultural marriage--especially as she played the role of chief's wife in a remote village in Liberia, West Africa. In her journey to world citizen, her life was full of extremes. She met the president of Liberia in the Executive Mansion--and slept in a mud hut. She visited European capitals--and lived in a remote African village. She flew on transatlantic flights--and was carried through the high forest in a chief's hammock. Share her struggles as she is accepted into the Mende tribe and lives in Vahun with an "off and on" kerosene fridge, swarming termites on the screens, a cyclone barely missing the house, and pungent elephant meat delivered in the middle of the night.

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this honest and surprising true adventure of the lifelong relationship between a Midwest farm girl from a conservative background and an African chief and professor from Liberia. Only their love for each other and the grace of God could conquer the many extremes they faced as they overcame prejudice, dealt with conflict and controversy and forged an inspiring life of service together. Anita Dennis sure knows how to write a compelling narrative with an engaging style that pulls the reader forward. I have shard her work with members of my family and several friends and they join me in highly recommending this wonderful book.
