‘King Peggy’: A Cinderella Story — With A Twist

During my vacation to San Francisco, I had the pleasure of reading the new nonfiction bestseller, KING PEGGY. It was so delightful that I read it TWICE! The book is full of fascinating juxtapositions: the life of a secretary in the United States and the life of a king in Ghana; a lonely life and a life surrounded by community; living without real purpose and living with a meaning decided by one's ancestors etc. Peggy brings to her role, as (shockingly!) a female king in Ghana, all the wit and wisdom of a modern day woman mixed with the traditions and beliefs of her relatives in Ghana. Loved it! more... Pam
